COMMENTS

LSU looks like its trending upward after a sweep over UT. The Gamecocks have been a disappointment so far this season but it must be considered that they are the only team that has played both Florida and Arkansas. USC at least won a game in both those series. This will be a tossup in Columbia.

Series Prediction


Tossup.
