All eyes are likely to be on Jadeveon Clowney when South Carolina takes on Michigan in the 2013 Outback Bowl on Jan. 1. Clowney, the team's defensive end who was named a first-team All-American and SEC defensive player of the year, will be after whichever player happens to start at quarterback for the Wolverines on Tuesday.
Denard Robinson has been Michigan's focal point on offense, but he missed two games with an injury to his throwing arm, and hasn't started at quarterback in five games due to said injury. Michigan continues to find ways to get the football to the explosive Robinson, but it's been Devin Gardner getting the call under center.
Gardner has thrown for 1,005 yards and eight touchdowns against four interceptions in his time as a starter. Clowney will be after either guy, and that will be the primary focus of the game for both teams: canceling out the other's playmakers.
