United Kingdom now 3-0 after victory over SC

“Guns loaded and ready to go to work.”

Before getting hurt on Saturday night, he'd caught another five passes for 122 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown on the very first play of the game for SC.

Losing to Kentucky didn't eliminate SC from contention in the SEC East this season, but the loss of Samuel might.

South Carolina's Skai Moore picks off a Stephen Johnson pass, but United Kingdom doesn't give up any points.

Kentucky enters Saturday's matchup with a record of 2-0.

Mark Stoops is a defensive minded coach. Kentucky made the critical plays when it needed. SC would get a late score in the fourth as Bentley found OrTre Smith for a 9-yard touchdown.

French Officials Don't Suspect Terror In Attack
French media reports are describing the attacker using the word "déséquilibré", meaning a psychological imbalance. One attack, which was supposed to happen in April leading up to the French presidential election, was thwarted .

Will Muschamp's Gamecocks also head into Saturday's game at 2-0.

A moment of silence was held before the game for former SC great Alex Hawkins, who died Tuesday. "It seems like everybody has had us as the underdog so it just gives us extra motivation coming out here and playing big games, in big situations, big environments and wanting to do well".

It looks like the Gamecocks will in fact have to find other players to replace the production of star Deebo Samuel.

Samuel has touched the ball a total of 14 times in two games, resulting in a pair of 97-yard kickoff returns for touchdowns, two rushes for 30 yards and a touchdown and 10 receptions for 128 yards and two scores. He's even starting to garner national attention as a Heisman candidate. "Couldn't get off the field, couldn't get the offense on the field", SC coach Will Muschamp said.

Kentucky extended its winning streak to 3-0 Saturday after a victory over SC. He tallied five tackles, two sacks and two tackles for a loss in that matchup, earning SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors for his efforts. That, Stoops said, fired up his players not to let this one go.

Greg Olsen suffered broken foot in Week 2
Cam Newton was 20 of 32 for 228 yards but was sacked six times by Sean McDermott's defense. The Panthers entered halftime with a 6-0 lead despite out-gaining Buffalo 193-39.

Benny Snell Jr. rushed for two touchdowns and Kentucky's defense held off SC to win its fourth straight over the Gamecocks, 23-13, on Saturday night. He ran for 73 yards and a touchdown against the Gamecocks in Lexington last season. He finished 7-for-9 with 77 yards passing on third downs, not including his 54-yard scramble on third down as the clock wound down in the fourth quarter.

While Kentucky still has a very special talent in Snell, he might be less than 100 percent for this matchup (bruised ribs).

Chris Lammons #3 of the South Carolina Gamecocks defends Stanley Williams #18 of the Kentucky Wildcats as he runs with the ball at Commonwealth Stadium on September 24, 2016 in Lexington, Kentucky. That might be a tall order against an improved Gamecocks run defense on the road. It helps more that SC is the better team in this game. This time Benny Snell bangs it in from the one.

It's a chance at 3-0 and 1-0 in SEC play. That put the game away.
