TEXAS A&M: There have been many coaching changes in the SEC over the past 12 months, but the Aggies' is in a class of its own. Jimbo Fisher, who took Florida State to a National Championship in 2014, was brought to College Station to do the exact same thing. His recruiting savvy and schematic expertise will bear fruit right away, but actual wins may take some time. The schedule, which includes September meetings with Clemson and Alabama, will almost certainly leave A&M 2-2 after its first four games. Overall, the goal should be a bowl, and to establish a quarterback and offensive line for the future. Junior RB Trayveon Williams will help, and the defense, led by former Notre Dame coordinator Mike Elko, should improve. Things are looking up at A&M'which in the SEC West means about 7-5.
S CAROLINA: The Gamecocks have been lapped by Clemson in the Palmetto State, but coach Will Muschamp has kept his team in the East conversation, and this year will be no different. On defense, South Carolina has all-conference talent'specifically defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and linebacker T.J. Brunson'but lacks depth. The team's bona fide star on offense, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, returns from an injury-marred 2017 and can fluster defenses, giving QB Jake Bentley more options to exploit from the pocket. With eight offensive starters returning this season, South Carolina should continue to improve in a division that is making strides across the board.
No. 22 Texas A&M heads to South Carolina to face Gamecocks

For a second consecutive week, Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher will be looking across to the other sideline and see a familiar face when his 22nd-ranked Aggies (4-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) visit South Carolina Saturday.

Kickoff at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia is 3:30 p.m. on the SEC Network.

Fisher and the Gamecocks' Will Muschamp have links that go back several years. Most notably, both were coordinators at LSU, Fisher on offense, Muschamp on defense, under Nick Saban at LSU for the Tigers' 2003 national championship team.

"Will was one of the brightest guys I've ever been around," Fisher said. "We won a national championship together as coordinators, and we're friends.

"People know we used to own a house, a beach house, together. It was a lot of things. He's always been a great friend, a great guy."

Muschamp also was a graduate assistant at Auburn when Fisher was on the staff there.

"He's a great friend," Muschamp said of Fisher. "We worked together back at Auburn in the '90s, then obviously we were together at LSU. He's a really good football coach, and he's got a good football team."

Muschamp's Gamecocks (3-2, 2-2 SEC) are coming off an emotional, 37-35 victory over Missouri in their last outing. Fisher's Aggies went to overtime for a 20-14 win over a Kentucky team that is coached by Mark Stoops, who was Fisher's offensive coordinator at Florida State before taking the Wildcats job.

"You know all those guys and you hate playing all your friends," Fisher said. "You really do."

Fisher called the win over Kentucky "another step for us in the right direction." The Aggies more than dominated the then-13th-ranked Wildcats, holding what was then the SEC's leading rushing team to just 70 yards on the ground and 178 in total offense.

But they failed to make the plays earlier that could have made for a more comfortable evening, failing to convert a fourth-and-1 at Kentucky's 27-yard line in the second quarter and missing a field goal and turning the ball over twice in the second half.

With 390 yards, the Aggies more than doubled Kentucky's output. For the season, they have averaged over 490 yards a game rushing and passing and have the league's leading rusher in running back Trayveon Williams. Williams has averaged 120 yards a game and 6.0 per carry with seven rushing touchdowns.

"The big thing is on offense the consistency to finish drives," Fisher said. "The way we're moving the ball, we've got to finish drives and put points on the board."

That will be the key against the Gamecocks, he emphasized.

"We're going to have to start fast and finish fast in this one," Fisher said. "We'll have to make our adjustments, too.

"Anytime you're on the road it gives you confidence to get out of the blocks to play well like we did in the Arkansas game. Got a jump and got out front. But this game we're going to have to get out in front and maintain.

"They can score points."

The Gamecocks' offense will present just a bit of a mystery, however. Junior Jake Bentley is expected to be back as the starter at quarterback after missing last week with a knee injury, but it isn't certain.

Senior Mike Scarnecchia, who led the comeback win over Missouri, could start again.

"I've told both Jake and Mike that they need to be ready to go play," Muschamp said. "We've got two guys we can win with, and that's good to have."

Scarnechia had seen little time before last week, when he passed for 249 yards. Bentley has started since his freshman year and is an accurate passer with a 64 percent completion rate this season.

"I'm making the decision that I think helps us win," Muschamp said. "At the end of the day, that's what we are going to do, but we have two guys I have confidence that we can win with. I feel comfortable with both guys."
