NO. 5 SOUTH CAROLINA AT LSU
When: Oct. 13
Where: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, La.
Why it’s No. 5: Could serve as a preview for the SEC title game. South Carolina is considered one of the favorites to win the SEC East, while LSU has stockpiled enough talent to win the SEC West.
Series History: LSU leads 16-2 (one tie)
Rivalry on scale of 1-100: 60. A rivalry has been built over the past 20 years, but hasn’t hit full steam yet. That could change if South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier takes a few jabs at the Bayou Bengals over the next couple of years.
