Spurrier: RB Davis likely to play vs East Carolina

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says injured tailback Mike Davis has received treatment on his bruised ribs the past few days and is likely to see action Saturday night when the 21st-ranked Gamecocks take on East Carolina.

Davis hurt himself in the loss to Texas A&M last week. Spurrier thought his 1,000-yard rusher would be "sort of doubtful" to play this week. But the coach said Tuesday it was looking like Davis would be well enough to play.

The junior gained 1,183 yards rushing last season. He had only six rushes for 15 yards against the Aggies and did not play the second half after taking a hit in the ribs. South Carolina lists Davis or junior Brandon Wilds as the starting tailback on the team's latest depth chart.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
