Kentucky football opens SEC play with a tough task Saturday night when the Cats visit Columbia to meet the South Carolina Gamecocks in a 7:30 p.m. game on the SEC Network.

Josh Kendall, who covers the Gamecocks for The State in Columbia, gave me a scouting report on the Gamecocks. Josh talks about quarterback Jake Bentley, dynamic wide receiver/kick returner Debo Samuel, returning linebacker Skai Moore and South Carolina’s 2-0 start against a pair of Power 5 foes.
