COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier has finally made it official -- South Carolina senior Blake Mitchell will return to his starting quarterback spot against Number Eleven Georgia this weekend.
Spurrier made the announcement after today's practice.
Mitchell, who's in his fifth season with the Gamecocks (1-0), would be back under center at Sanford Stadium on Saturday evening. Mitchell missed South Carolina's 28-14 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette last week because of a one-game academic suspension he got for missing too many classes during summer school.
Freshman Chris Smelley and sophomore Tommy Beecher shared playing time against the Ragin' Cajuns, each throwing a touchdown pass in the win.
