One win away from clinching the most single-season wins in franchise history, the South Carolina Gamecocks travel to Orlando looking to create their own Disneyland as they take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl. With 10 wins in 12 games, the Gamecocks looked as good as they have under head coach Steve Spurrier this year, and will now look to their defense to slow down one of the toughest offensive backfields in the country as the slight sports betting favorites.

The tandem of quarterback Taylor Martinez and running back Rex Burkhead spearheaded an offense that finished 13th in the nation in rushing yards, and will look to close out the year with a statement game. That could be tough against South Carolina’s fourth-ranked defense, which features both Melvin Ingram and Jadeveon Clowney.

When the Cornhuskers look back at their first season in the Big Ten, they will have to consider it a success even though they lost two of their last four games, as they still have a shot at 10 wins. Martinez threw for 1,973 yards and 12 touchdowns, but was solid in the running game as he and Burkhead each averaged 4.9 yards per carry to combine for over 2,000 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns. However, the Cornhuskers’ attack did stall in losses to Northwestern and Michigan, a game that they lost 45-17.

The only real hiccup on the Gamecocks’ schedule was a 44-28 loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks back in November, one of just two losses in the SEC all year. The fact that South Carolina was able to get to this point despite losing its starting quarterback and starting running back is something special, and a lot of it can be attributed to excellent coaching by Spurrier and his staff. The truth is that while the offense was hard to watch at times this year, they did enough to get by with their stifling defense, and that will have to be the case again heading in to this weekend.

Capital One Bowl Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Nebraska played well in its first season in the Big Ten, but the Cornhuskers are in for a rough ride against their first SEC opponent in five years. While they have managed to put up points all year, the ‘Huskers lost two of their final four games, and will have a tough time putting up big numbers against a talented South Carolina defense. Spurrier is among the smartest coaches in college football, and he won’t let anything stand in his way as he shoots for a tenth win as the sportsbook favorites for this game.
