Gamecocks rise in the Associated Press Top 25

South Carolina moves up in the AP Poll this week after a solid win over Missouri 31-10. Connor Shaw and the Gamecocks skill players kept the South Carolina offense rolling while the Gamecock defense shut down a potent Missouri offense.

South Carolina moved up in the Associated Press Top 25 poll this week to number six after beating Missouri 31-10 on Saturday afternoon.

The Gamecocks got some help from Oklahoma as the Sooners fell to Kansas State 24-19 Saturday night. The Sooners were the number six team but fell to 16th in the Poll released Sunday afternoon.

The SEC has four teams in the top six in the AP Poll currently: Alabama, LSU, Georgia and South Carolina.

The Gamecocks will take their number six ranking on the road next Saturday to Lexington, Kentucky where they will take on the Kentucky Wildcats at 7:00 pm on ESPN or ESPN2.
