Thoughts: The Gamecocks defeated Clemson in their final regular season game while Michigan fell to Ohio State. I expect both offenses to score some points here but both defenses are giving up less than three touchdowns per game. I like the Wolverines with the points as well as the over. In the end, the Gamecocks win, via a late field goal.
