Watch: Jeremy Pruitt's Final Press Conference Ahead of South Carolina Game

Matthew Ray

Jeremy Pruitt was available to reporters one final time before his team travels to Columbia, South Carolina for a showdown with the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night. You can watch the press conference in the video above. (Pruitt's Audio was cut out for his opening statement, once fixed he started fielding questions.)

Earlier in the week, Pruitt said: "Our guys are really excited about getting a chance to play this week. I am really proud about how everyone in our organization has really stuck together trying to figure out a way for us to improve daily. Our kids have had a great attitude along with this staff and we are excited about this week. We have a tremendous challenge going on the road playing South Carolina. We are very familiar with their staff. Coach Muschamp has done an outstanding job there. He does an outstanding job on defense. He hired Mike Bobo to be his offensive coordinator, a guy that I've worked with before that I feel like is one of the best offensive minds in all of football, so it will be a tremendous challenge on both sides of the ball. Then you throw in special teams, which for us has probably been a huge point of emphasis just with the fact that we've had so many guys that have not been able to participate in practice, we've had to bounce guys around. We've got a lot of work that we've got to get done this week. We've got to continue to build and try to create momentum heading into Saturday's matchup."
