Center Alan Knott out several weeks for Gamecocks
Coach Steve Spurrier said Sunday that because of the high left ankle sprain freshman Zack Bailey will start when South Carolina (1-2) plays Central Florida (0-3) on Saturday.
Knott is a third-year sophomore who started eight games last season. He started the first three games this year before getting hurt. Knott's loss means the quarterback-center combo that South Carolina had entering the year are sidelined for extended periods.
