College Football Countdown: 76 Days Until the South Carolina Gamecocks Kickoff

| by

Today there are 76 days until kickoff.

76 means very little in the Gamecocks history books, but 176 earned a spot last season.  Marcus Lattimore continued his tradition of carving up Georgia's defense by rushing 27 times for 176 yards.  He also scored the touchdown that gave USC the lead for good. 

Carolina won 45-42 in Athens.

The year before Marcus had his coming out party against Georgia. 

He rushed 37 times for 182 yards. 

If history is any guide, Marcus should carry 17 times for 170 yards against the Bulldogs this season.
