(Sports) Gamecocks Vs Alabama-Birmingham Tonight!

Gamecock fans converge on Williams-Brice Stadium Saturday for a second straight home game as USC hosts the University of Alabama-Birmingham tonight.

The Gamecocks are coming off a 48-10 win over East Carolina last Saturday.  UAB had a bye.

USC is 2-0 this season with wins over East Carolina and Vanderbilt.  The Blazers lost to Troy 39-29 in their season opener two weeks ago.

Head Coach Steve Spurrier has not yet announced if Connor Shaw will start at quarterback for the Gamecocks.  Shaw suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder against Vanderbilt and he did not play against East Carolina last week.

The Big Spur web site reports “expect Dylan Thompson to start for the Gamecocks tonight.”

Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
