What we learned in South Carolina's loss to Missouri

Offense: Dylan Thompson can't overcome every obstacle. He's looked pretty good all season, even in losses. Now the question is, can this offense compete when playing against a defense that makes stops.

Defense: It finally showed up, holding Maty Mauk to 132 passing yards and the rest of the team to 280 total yards. Excellent effort.

Special Teams: This could be a real strength if the team gives the same effort in other games that they did tonight.
