Kickoff time set for USC vs. Tennessee

dcloninger@thestate.comOctober 7, 2013 

South Carolina's game at Tennessee on Oct. 19 will kick off at noon and be broadcast on ESPN, the SEC announced on Monday.

It will be the second straight kickoff in that time period for the No. 14 Gamecocks, who play at Arkansas at 12:21 p.m. on Saturday. USC (4-1, 2-1 SEC) is coming off a win over Kentucky while the Volunteers (3-3, 0-2) are coming off an overtime loss to Georgia. Also like the Arkansas game, the Gamecocks will play a coach in his first year in the league (Butch Jones).

Tennessee leads the overall series 22-7-2, but USC has won three straight and four of five. The Gamecocks won 38-35 in Columbia last season.

Tennessee is on its bye week this week.
