South Carolina Gamecocks Finish Ranked No. 10, Will Play Michigan in the Outback Bowl
The South Carolina Gamecocks football team concluded the 2012 regular season ranked No. 10 in the BCS and got a invite to the Outback Bowl. USC will represent the SEC and take their 10-2 record to sunny Florida to clash with Michigan.
The New Year's Day game will be played at 1 p.m. Jan. 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
It will be the Gamecocks' fourth trip to the Outback Bowl since the 2000 season. This will be a good game against a good squad from the Big Ten, as Coach Brady Hoke's Michigan team finished the season 8-4, going 6-2 in the Big Ten. This trip to Tampa will prove worthy as it is likely to be sunny and will feature a showdown on the field. Look for USC to be favored by a lot and look for Michigan to not roll over as both teams would love to capture a win.
