'College GameDay' headed to Columbia

The site of the rematch will also be the site of ESPN's "College GameDay."

When Missouri and South Carolina do battle Saturday for the first time since their epic overtime battle a season ago, all eyes will be on Columbia, South Carolina. It will either be Tigers or Gamecocks for Lee Corso and the crew.

The characters have changed some since last season, but hopefully the drama will remain. Dylan Thompson, South Carolina's fifth-year senior quarterback, won't have Connor Shaw to bail him out again. But judging by his numbers this season -- 285 yards passing per game, 11 touchdowns -- he might not need assistance.

For Missouri, the chief question will be how the Tigers respond after losing inexplicably to Indiana. That's the same Indiana team that lost to Bowling Green.

Still, when you look at the standings in the East, South Carolina and Missouri are right there. Whoever wins on Saturday could be in the driver's seat to win the division.
