Missouri Vs. South Carolina 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

The Missouri Tigers resume SEC play as they travel to Columbia to take on 7th-ranked South Carolina on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers are coming off a 24-21 home win against Arizona State in which freshman quarterback Corbin Berkstresser got his first career start. Playing for the injured James Franklin, Berkstresser was 21-41 for 198 yards in the win. A top-20 defense and a turnover margin of plus-two per game, fifth in the country, have the potential to keep Missouri in any game.

South Carolina will have a strong defense of its own, however. The Gamecocks are giving up just 53 rushing yards per game, and have the country's 14th-best defense according to S&P+ ratings. The offense has been led by sophomore quarterback Dylan Thompson, who has thrown for 507 yards and five touchdowns in 50 pass attempts. Thompson has been filling in for Connor Shaw, who appears to be ready to resume his starting role after being injured in South Carolina's first game.

Game time/date: Sat., Sept 22, 2:30 p.m. CT
Location: Columbia, SC
TV: CBS
Odds: South Carolina by 10
Matchup History: Missouri holds the series lead 2-0 after bowl wins in 1979 and 2005.
