South Carolina continues to rise.

Following a day where the Gamecocks beat Missouri and took over undisputed first place in the SEC, USC (20-2, 8-1 SEC) was similarly rewarded with a jump in the Associated Press Top 25. The Gamecocks advanced one spot to No. 6.

North Carolina, which gave USC one of its only two losses, lost twice this week to precipitate the jump. The Gamecocks remain the highest-ranked team in the SEC.
