Gamecocks defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said Thursday that sophomore linebacker Moore would miss the game with the Vols (3-5, 0-4 Southeastern Conference) on Saturday night. Moore was the team’s top tackler a year ago as a freshman and was leading the Gamecocks (4-4, 2-4) with 51 stops this season.
