How many true freshmen started the Belk Bowl for SC?

South Carolina vs. Virginia - 12/29/18 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction

That's part of the reason the Gamecocks are 7-5 heading into Saturday's Belk Bowl against Virginia.

The Wahoos will be relying heavily on an offense led by dual-threat quarterback Bryce Perkins, who broke the program's total offense and touchdown responsibility single-season records in 2018 against an injury-plagued SC defense that has struggled mightily. The end of the year wasn't good, though, as Virginia dropped its last two overall and three of the last four games as well, which has them stumbling into this one. SC had 261. Bentley has averaged 246 yards passing in 12 games this season and has thrown 27 touchdowns against 12 interceptions for a 153.6 passer rating. The top receivers for Bentley and the Gamecocks have been Deebo Samuel (5.2 rec/g; 73.5 yds/g; 11 TD), Bryan Edwards (4.3 rec/g; 67.4 yds/g; 7 TD), and Shi Smith (3.5 rec/g; 54.3 yds/g; 4 TD). Mon Denson had three carries for 15 yards.

SC junior RB Rico Dowdle ranks No. 138 in college football with 633 yards rushing.

Manos was forced into action by the season-ending injury suffered by guard Zack Bailey. The Cavaliers were picked to finish last in the ACC Coastal this season, but they found a way to win seven games this season. "I think this year, (I) just learned a lot about leadership and the mindset it takes to win games, not getting too high or getting too low and just staying even-keeled and being able to respond to situations the same each and every time". Virginia played in first two Belk Bowls (2002 and 2003) and won both. "We've just got to focus on a whole game, four quarters, and just keep going series by series and not let anything else affect us".

Cavaliers quarterback Bryce Perkins went 22 of 31 for 208 yards. HB Olamide Zaccheaus needs five receptions to break own single-season school record of 85.

The Cavaliers' 14th-ranked pass defense put the clamps on a hot SC offense that had averaged 38.2 points per game over the past five games. Virginia has forced their opponents into committing 19 turnovers on the season and now has a turnover margin of +1.

The Gamecocks fell to 7-6 on the season.

SC without Samuel is not a team to be trusted offensively. SC finished the regular season ranked 35th in total offense, however, I think they are going to run into some trouble against a Cavaliers defense that ranks 27th in scoring defense and 23rd in total defense.
