COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier will likely match Paul "Bear" Bryant this weekend in total wins -- at South Carolina.

A victory against Wofford on Saturday will tie Spurrier with Bryant for the most wins by a Gamecocks coach with 64. Spurrier remains the winningest coach in Florida history with 122 victories. Bryant holds the record for most wins at Alabama (232) and at Kentucky (60).

Bryant and Spurrier rank 1-2 in several categories in the Southeastern Conference record book.

Spurrier is second with 122 SEC victories, 37 behind Bryant. His six SEC titles are eight behind Bryant.

Spurrier says he hasn't thought about the record and says he will leave comparisons between him and Bryant to others.
