South Carolina concluded the regular season with a 28-3 win against Akron on Saturday, but the victory came at a price.

Senior offensive lineman Zack Bailey broke his fibula on a play late in the game, Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said following the contest. Bailey will miss the team’s bowl game, which will be announced Sunday, but Muschamp believes a few other banged-up players should return by then.

Muschamp was also asked why senior quarterback Michael Scarnecchia didn’t get any playing time in his final home game in favor of junior starter Jake Bentley.

Indeed, the Gamecocks had four turnovers — three in the second half — amid rainy conditions Saturday. Bentley threw two interceptions but completed 14 of 27 passes for 199 yards and three scores.

South Carolina finished the regular season with a 7-5 record. The Gamecocks played this weekend because their September non-conference game against Marshall was canceled due to Hurricane Florence.
