The Tigers, who trail Southern Cal in both polls, return to action this week, hosting 12th-ranked and undefeated South Carolina in a 2:30 p.m. contest in Tiger Stadium. The game will be televised to a national audience by CBS.

Florida, Oklahoma and West Virginia round out the top five in both polls.
