Columbia, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier announced Wednesday that backup quarterback Dylan Thompson will start in place of an injured Connor Shaw when the Gamecocks travel to No. 5 Missouri Saturday night.

Shaw injured his left knee this past weekend in a 23-21 loss at Tennessee. An MRI on the knee was negative and did not show any torn ligaments.

"Connor Shaw we don't know about, he may be able to dress and be a backup but we don't know," Spurrier said. "Dylan is going to start the game and it will be his to go with."

Thompson, a redshirt junior, will make his third career start. In two starts last year against East Carolina and Clemson, both wins, Thompson threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns in each game. He also threw the game winning touchdown pass against Michigan in last year's Outback Bowl.
