Mangus says Shaw is set to start
USC quarterback Connor Shaw has been nursing a sore back and missed a practice last week with back spasms. But after practice Monday night, quarterbacks coach GA Mangus echoed earlier comments by coach Steve Spurrier that Shaw is fine and ready to start Thursday night at Vanderbilt. The Gamecocks will practice again Tuesday afternoon and will leave Columbia Wednesday for Nashville. Thursday’s game will be on ESPN with a 7:00 kickoff.
