Steve Spurrier will enter his 11th season as coach of South Carolina in 2015, and will be looking to improve on an up-and-down 10th year. 

The Gamecocks began 2014 with high expectations, coming in at ninth in the AP and Coaches' preseason poll. But their season got off to a rocky start with a week one loss to Texas A&M. By the sixth week of the season, South Carolina would be out of the polls for good. 

Spurrier's team struggled with consistency, never winning more than three games in a row. The Gamecocks suffered two two-game losing streaks. The highlights of the season were an early win over then-No. 6 Georgia and an overtime win over Spurrier's former team, the Florida Gators. 

The Gamecocks ended last season on a high note, with an Independence Bowl win over the Miami Hurricanes.
