South Carolina starting quarterback Zeb Noland is set to go under the knife on Tuesday.

The program announced on Monday evening Noland will have a “minor surgical procedure” performed on his knee as he has suffered a tear of his meniscus. The good news is that he is slated to return in time for the Gamecocks’ contest against Florida on Nov. 6.


The Gamecocks are in an open week right now and are currently 4-4 overall, 1-4 in the SEC. They were crushed by Texas A&M 44-14 on Oct. 23 as Noland was 7-of-12 for just 30 yards before Jason Brown took over in the 4th quarter.

With Luke Doty out for the season, Noland has been declared the starter and Brown his backup. The Gamecocks also have true freshman Colten Gauthier on scholarship.
