Seniors enjoy final home game

Before South Carolina took the field to do battle with the Clemson Tigers, the Gamecocks honored their seniors and players who are deciding whether or not to declare for the NFL Draft.

Gamecock defense puts the pressure on Tigers

Head coach Steve Spurrier said before Saturday’s game that pressure would be key in slowing down Clemson senior quarterback Tajh Boyd. On Saturday, the Gamecock defense had five sacks to help fuel South Carolina’s 31-17 victory over the Tigers. The Gamecocks have now sacked Boyd 16 times in the past three meetings between the two teams.

Gamecocks hoping to pressure Boyd

Even with all the hype around the Palmetto State surrounding this Saturday’s matchup between South Carolina and Clemson, Gamecock defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward has somehow kept his defense focused on one game at a time.

USC vs. Clemson: Rivalry renewed

Despite not experiencing a loss to Clemson in his career, redshirt junior defensive back Victor Hampton is looking at the bigger picture when it comes to the rivalry between the Gamecocks and Tigers.

Volleyball swept again

The Gamecocks had another tough weekend in conference play as they dropped two more games in straight sets to Arkansas and LSU.

South Carolina crushes Coastal Carolina

After a week of speculation that South Carolina could be in for a trap against FCS power Coastal Carolina, the Gamecocks made their doubters look silly Saturday by obliterating the Chanticleers 70-10.

Freshmen take advantage of playing time

After the 70-10 squashing of Coastal Carolina on Saturday, coach Steve Spurrier said it was nice to put on a performance like that this late in the season, something the Gamecocks haven’t had since a 69-24 win against Troy in 2010.

Defense smothers high-powered Coastal offense

Coastal Carolina is a Football Championship Subdivision school, but its offense was not something to take lightly, putting up 45.5 points and a little over 500 yards per game before Saturday’s game at Williams-Brice Stadium. Those averages for the Chanticleers will dwindle after South Carolina handed them a 70-10 loss.

Behind enemy lines: Coastal Carolina

1. Coastal has a prolific offense that averages more than 45 points per game. However, they will be facing their biggest challenge of the season against South Carolina. With that said, how can the Chanticleers have some success against the Gamecock defense?

Depleted defense faces potent offense

Normally when an FCS opponent comes in to play an FBS team, it’s a warm-up act for a bigger game down the road. But Coastal Carolina shouldn’t be much of one.

Shaw in position to take over sole possession of win record

Although Saturday’s matchup with Coastal Carolina carries no significance in terms of standings, a South Carolina win would be much more than just that for senior quarterback Connor Shaw, as he looks to surpass Todd Ellis’ record for most wins in school history.
