NCAA Cash-In Thursday: SC vs. UNC

Wild on Sports
NCAA Cash-In Thursday:
#6 South Carolina Gamecocks 
vs. North Carolina Tar Heels
Line: South Carolina -12

FOOTBALL IS FINALLY BACK! Boy, that feels good to say. College football kicks off the 2013 season Thursday night with a bang as #6 South Carolina plays host to the unranked North Carolina Tar Heels. 

This match-up really features two teams in very different classes.

For South Carolina, the pre-season number six ranked team in the country, the game serves as a tune up for what could be a National Championship contending team. The Gamecock's boast a very strong defense led by possibly the best player in the country in Jadevon Clowney. On the offensive side of the ball they lost Marcus Lattimore to the draft but retain two promising young backs and enough treats on the outside to be dangerous.

For UNC the key will be quarterback Bryn Renner who, when healthy, is one of the top QB's in the ACC. The lost top weapon Giovanni Bernard in the backfield to the draft will but extra pressure on Renner and company to get the job done through the air as they look to match SC blow for blow. On the defensive side of the ball

Verdict:  UNC is an up and coming team and will surprise some along the way but not this Gamecocks team. Steve Spurrier is 7-0 on opening days in SC (22-1 lifetime) and will have his team sharp from the get go. South Carolina was 5-1 ATS against ACC opponents last season and will likely continue that trend Thursday night.
