COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says he'll work with the defensive backs in practice this week.

The banged-up Gamecocks squandered nearly all of an 18-point lead and escaped UCF with a 28-25 victory Saturday.

Spurrier said Sunday he'd help make sure South Carolina's defensive backs keep the ball in front of them and don't allow the big plays they did against the Knights. UCF rallied back on Blake Bortles' 73-yard touchdown pass to Rannell Hall and a 79-yard throw to Breshad Perriman that led to a Hall's 7-yard scoring catch.

The 13th-ranked Gamecocks (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) play Kentucky next Saturday.
