I’m going with South Carolina here. They’re simply the better team from top to bottom, and South Carolina has just been much sharper offensively at this point in the year. The Irish are going to go through a tough 2023 in my opinion, and I don’t think it’s going to let up here. Give me the Gamecocks of South Carolina here.
