Today there are 86 days until kickoff.
86 means almost nothing in the Gamecock record books.
186, on the other hand, was the total number of yards gained by Tennessee last year.
There was once a time when the Volunteer offense would grind out that many on the ground alone.
The Vols had 151 through the air, and a paltry 35 on the ground. Most of the credit goes to Ellis Johnson and the defense for a dominant performance, but credit is also due Connor Shaw and Brandon Wilds whose rushing performances allowed the offense to hold the ball for 36:18.
Who else is looking forward to Tennessee coming to Williams-Brice?
