Gamecocks Fall, Deebo Out

  • “Guns loaded and ready to go to work.”

Muschamp said Saturday that Samuel's leg was broken in the Gamecocks' 23-13 loss to Kentucky and he would miss the rest of the season.

Williams-Brice Stadium will serve as the backdrop for an SEC East matchup between the Kentucky Wildcats and South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night.

Samuel tweeted after the game he "will be back in 5-6 weeks", but Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp didn't sound so optimistic.

SC (2-1, 1-1) electrified a sold-out stadium with a 68-yard TD catch by receiver Deebo Samuel on the opening play, then got an interception and a fumble from the Wildcats' first two drives. He had five catches for 122 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown catch to open the game.

Despite coming in having won three-straight against SC, the Wildcats were the underdog - according to the betting lines and many media predictions. Samuel has two 97-yard kickoff returns for touchdowns, two receiving touchdowns and added a 25-yard rushing touchdown to his resume' last week against Missouri.

After struggling on their first three drives, Kentucky found their rhythm with back-to-back long, scoring drives capped off by Benny Snell touchdowns.

Kentucky (3-0, 1-0 SEC) certainly showed that much of this one.

SC has opportunities on several fronts heading into Saturday's game against Kentucky. He leads the SEC and is tied for second nationally. The Wildcats then kicked a 21-yard field goal.

I remember glancing up and seeing on ESPN's Bottom Line that SC had scored a mere 13 seconds into the game. Dante Sawyer has forced two fumbles and SC has recovered three total while Bryson Allen-Williams and Jamyest Williams have one interception each. "You never know. The surgery went extremely well".

It's a big loss for SC, which dropped to 2-1 on the year.

If South Carolina could only muster 13 points against Kentucky, think of how it will struggle without its top playmaker as the likes of Texas A&M, Arkansas, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Florida and yes, Clemson, await it on the schedule. "He's going to be hard to replace".

SC sideline reporter Langston Moore told The State that Johnson started the incident by talking smack. That team won its first four conference games, went 11-2 and posted a win over MI in the Outback Bowl.
