The Wildcats could improve to 2-0 in the SEC with a win, while the Gamecocks are trying to avoid starting 0-2. South Carolina will finally get to start its intended quarterback, Luke Doty, who missed the first two weeks with an injury. South Carolina feels like a work in progress with first-year coach Shane Beamer, whereas Kentucky has an identity under Mark Stoops. Will Levis, the Kentucky transfer quarterback from Penn State, will make enough plays to get it done.
