South Carolina: The Gamecocks have the 12th best defense in the nation. Sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has accounted for 13 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss this season. Senior Kenny Miles and freshman Mike Davis have shared the rushing duties after Marcus Lattimore's season ended on October 27th with a knee injury.

Michigan: Michigan will be without cornerback J.T. Floyd, punter Will Hagerup, and backup linebacker Brandin Hawthorne who were all suspended for the bowl game for violating team rules. Michigan's defense allows just 155.2 passing yards per game. Denard Robinson will play in his final collegiate game, likely splitting time at both quarterback and running back.
