COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina running back Kenny Miles sees the same desire, the same drive, the same focus from the Gamecocks, even with tailback Marcus Lattimore on the sidelines.

The 11th-ranked Gamecocks (7-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) have a much-needed week off before closing out league play at home against Arkansas on Nov. 10.

Miles, a senior, will start in place of Lattimore, the star tailback who was lost for the season after a gruesome knee injury last week against Tennessee.

Losing a leader and team captain like Lattimore is a blow, Miles said. But the Gamecocks have made it through this storm before, going 5-1 after Lattimore tore a ligament in his left knee midway through the 2011 season.
