Columbia, S.C. - Tuesday's highlights: Head coach Lou Holtz termed Tuesday's workout a "good, solid practice." The Gamecock #1 offense worked against the #1 defense. Three quarterbacks are in the running for the starter's job for this Saturday's game against the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Bennett Swygert is probably two years behind due to his two knee surgeries. Dondrial had done a decent job of protecting the football until the
game. We'll have a better idea after looking at today's film and going through practice on Wednesday."
