South Carolina vaulted 10 places in the latest Associated Press poll after Saturday's win over Georgia.
The Gamecocks' climb to No. 14 gave the Southeastern Conference seven teams in the top 15, which the AP said Sunday was unprecedented.
Florida State was idle and remained No. 1 with 1,466 points overall and 37 first-place votes from a nationwide media panel.
Is there such a thing as too much offense?

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Let's face it football fans, we love offense.
Watching a team roll up ridiculous yardage totals and lighting up the scoreboard always grabs our attention. Flashy performers who break off big plays and set a wild pace capture our focus (see Johnny Football). I mean, why else would the parents of current Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill apply to have his nickname "Kenny Trill" trademarked?
It's all about the offense, right? Even the casual fan loves big numbers, and leans off the edge of their seat just a little more when a quarterback drops back with time winding down in the first half, and lets loose with a Hail Mary toward the end zone. Just ask Houston Cougars fans who watched John O'Korn launch a 45-yard scoring strike to Daniel Spencer just inside the goal line at the conclusion of the first half versus No. 25 BYU on Thursday night.
