COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina linebacker Jonathan Walton has one goal on his mind -- qualify for a bowl game.Weve got something to fight for, Walton said Tuesday.The Gamecocks (5-5) hope to extend their season this week against struggling Ftball Championship Subdivision opponent (2- at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday. It may not be as easy a task as it sounds, given the last time South Carolina faced an FCS opponent, Citadel walked out with a 23-22 victory.That makes me nuts, every day, left tackle Mason Zandi said.Walton, Zandi and the Gamecocks say those memories from last year drive them at practice this week, particular with a chance to extend their season into the holidays.South Carolina coach Will Muschamp began talking up a bowl bid several weeks ago as his team rallied from a 2-4 start to win three in a row before last weeks 20-7 defeat at Florida .I talk to these guys all the time, the first-year coach said. These seniors want to go to a bowl game. Thats very important for our program.Especially for the additional month or so of workouts, film breakdowns and practices leading up to a postseason game given how young South Carolina is.That youth showed last week at The Swamp as freshman quarterback Jake Bentley was swarmed by the Gators strong defensive line most of the game. He threw his first college interception and was sacked five times. Fellow freshman Rico Dowdle, who ran for over 100 yards in his two previous games, was held to 18 yards on nine carries before missing the fourth quarter due to injury.Still, the Gamecocks are the only Ftball Bowl Subdivision team with freshmen as leading passer (Bentley) and rusher (Dowdle).Ftballs not a sport where you can improve on your own, Muschamp said, like playing one-on-one in the backyard or heading to a batting cage.Youve got to go play the game and we need to be able to have these practices to continue to develop our youth, the coach said.South Carolina didnt figure to be in the mix for any bowl given the start to their season.Three straight losses to Kentucky, Texas A&M and Georgia left the Gamecocks staggered at 2-4 heading into a bye week without much hope to continue past November. But Muschamp brought true freshman Bentley in off the bench for co-starters Perry Orth and Brandon McIlwain and South Carolina began to take flight.The surprise was a 24-21 win over previously ranked Tennessee on Oct. 29 that put the Gamecocks in sight of a six-win season after going 3-9 last year.South Carolinas upperclassmen know that its like going to a bowl. Last years losing mark -- longtime head coach Steve Spurrier walked away in midseason with the team struggling -- was South Carolinas first since going 5-7 under Lou Holtz in 2003.Spurrier led the Gamecocks to seven straight bowl games from 2008 through 2014, winning the last four postseason games including the 2014 Independence Bowl the last time South Carolina qualified.I know what its like to miss a bowl, said Zandi, among 20 seniors wholl be honored in their final home game. Im not watching bowl games from my house this year.The Gamecocks have had a couple of gd, strong, focused days of work prepping for Western Carolina, which has lost seven of its past eight games.The Catamounts problems this season dont matter, said center Alan Knott. Theres only one goal the players discuss.Weve got to get our sixth win this week, weve got to get bowl eligible, Knott said. Thats what were working for.---More AP college ftball: tball.ap.org" target="_blank">www.collegeftball.ap.org Jason Spezza Jersey . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Daniel Alfredsson Jersey . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. http://www.senatorssale.com/authentic-mark-stone-senators-jersey/ . Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers. Ottawa Senators Jerseys . For the Wild it was their first win of the season and they now have a record of 1-1-2 while the Jets fall to 2-2. Jets start a six game home stand Friday with another divisional game, home to the Dallas Stars. Matt Duchene Jersey . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans. The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron believes he might squeeze one more year out of veteran Steve Johsnon, as question marks remain over the composition of the rising AFL clubs forward group.Johnson missed Saturdays six-point preliminary final loss to the Western Bulldogs due to suspension.The forward kicked 43 goals in his most productive season since 2011 and has scored 495 majors over 275 career games.He signed with the Giants for just one season, and the club left the dr open for him to play for another season or even join their coaching staff.Hes obviously had a terrific year, Cameron said.Hes fit in well with our fty club, but this time of year is always interesting because of the shifting and moving of players.We understand it happens a lot more than it used to.Well lk at our list and say, Are we on the right track? and I feel as though we definitely are.Illl probably have that chat with him early next week, but its probably more likely than unlikely (hell play on).ddddddddddddA question mark also lms over the future of ruckman-forward Rory Lobb, who reportedly might seek a trade to a club in his home state of Western Australia.Lobb had a breakout season, finishing among the top three in the competition for contested marks and chipped in with 29 goals.Another WA product, key forward Cam McCarthy, spent the season in his home state and lks likely to have played his last game for GWS, despite being on contract for 2017.Coming off contract is key forward James Stewart, who also had a gd season in 2015, but didnt play another senior game in 2016 after appearing in the first-round loss to Melbourne.
