Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- USC quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus says Dylan Thompson always prepares like a starter, even though that job belongs to Connor Shaw.

That preparation is in overdrive this week as Thompson will get the start against fifth-ranked Missouri.

Mangus hinted that Shaw could see a few snaps but Thompson is the one who will have the chance to go the distance.

The last time Thompson started, it was against the Tigers from the Upstate and the Boiling Springs product led the Gamecocks to an impressive win over the arch-rivals.

Now, Thompson will try to make it two straight wins over a team called the Tigers.
