COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- After the endless months of talk, college
football is finally here. South Carolina hosts North Carolina State Thursday night to kick off their respective seasons.
The Gamecocks and coach Steve Spurrier look to end the five-game
losing streak they carried into the offseason. The Wolfpack and
coach Tom O'Brien hope to improve on the 5-7 mark they had in the
coach's first year at North Carolina State.
Both teams will use first time starters at quarterback. For
South Carolina, it's be junior Tommy Beecher and for North Carolina
State, it will be freshman Russell Wilson.
