Spurrier to use two QBs against Georgia

  • Follow Latest News

COLUMBIA – South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier will counter No. 2 Georgia with two quarterbacks and a whole bunch of young receivers.

Spurrier said Tuesday he expects to play both Tommy Beecher and Chris Smelley at quarterback against the Bulldogs (2-0) on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium. Beecher and Smelley have each started a game this season.

Beecher threw four interceptions in the Gamecocks' 34-0 win over North Carolina State. Smelley started last week’s game with Vanderbilt, which turned into a 24-17 loss for South Carolina.

Spurrier also said he will go with several less experienced receivers to make up for the likely loss of record-setting wideout Kenny McKinley. Spurrier said sophomore Joe Hill would start in certain formations.
