Spurrier focused on Vols, not division title

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina keeps creeping closer to a first division title since joining the Southeastern Conference 18 years ago, but Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier isn't ready to focus on that yet.

If South Carolina beats Tennessee this weekend and a few other things fall into place, including a Georgia win over Florida, the Gamecocks could play for a spot in the SEC title game the next week.

But Spurrier said Tuesday that South Carolina has been in good shape before and seen things fall apart. The Gamecocks are 4-11 in their final five regular season games the past three seasons.

Spurrier did have some good news for South Carolina fans. He expects freshman running back Marcus Lattimore to be back in the lineup Saturday after missing last week with a sprained ankle.
