South Carolina will play 2 QBs against Georgia
The Gamecocks are returning to a two-man rotation at quarterback for Week 6.
On his weekly media teleconference, Will Muschamp said that both Brandon McIlwain and Perry Orth will play on Saturday against the Bulldogs.

McIlwain and Orth competed for the starting job throughout fall camp. After opening the season playing both, Muschamp had said that McIlwain would be the team’s quarterback going forward.
Against Texas A&M, however, Orth (11-of-18, 138 yards) entered in the fourth quarter and provided a much-needed spark after McIlwain struggled (9-of-15, 34 yards, INT).
Muschamp also announced that two players will be back against UGA:
