Dylan Thompson Named South Carolina's Starting QB Against Missouri

Gamecocks look to challenge undefeated Tigers without Connor Shaw.

Steve Spurrier to start Dylan Thompson at Missouri

South Carolina will head to Columbia for a showdown with the SEC East-leading Tigers without their starting quarterback. Connor Shaw suffered a sprained right knee late in the Gamecocks' loss to Tennessee last Saturday and will be extremely limited in practice this week. Dylan Thompson isn't the average backup, however; as he does not lack in big-game experience. Thompson won each of his previous two starts and eclipsed 300 passing yards in each. He led South Carolina to a victory over Clemson in the 2012 season finale and also threw a touchdown against Michigan in last year's Outback Bowl.
