Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The South Carolina Gamecocks are ranked seventh in the first Bowl Championship Series (BCS) rankings.

The survey was released Sunday night.

USC (6-1) is coming off a 23-21 loss to LSU Saturday. Prior to the setback, South Carolina was number 3 in the polls, but now stand at ninth in the Associated Press and eighth in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches.

The Gamecocks will have a chance to get right back in the national title race, though, when they play Florida this coming Saturday in Gainesville. The Gators are ranked second in the BCS, and a win would likely propel USC back up the charts.

The USC-Florida game will be played on CBS/WLTX at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Clemson is ranked nineteenth in the BCS. They were idle this past weekend.

Here is the BCS top 10:

1. Alabama

2. Florida

3. Oregon

4. Kansas State

5. Notre Dame

6. LSU

7. South Carolina

8. Oregon State

9. Oklahoma

10. Southern Cal
