Today there are 40 days until kickoff.
40 is the individual record for most rushes in a game. Marcus Lattimore set that record his freshman year against Florida in the Swamp. Lattimore has been no stranger to carrying a heavy load, and he often carries the heaviest in the biggest games. The Florida game was for the SEC East championship, so it was pretty big. Lattimore not only carried 40 times, but he also gained 212 yards, an average of 5.3 per, and scored 3 touchdowns. If the Gamecocks are going back to Atlanta, they'll need Lattimore at the end of the season.
