Gamecocks win in ugly fashion

South Carolina’s 34-16 victory over Mississippi State Saturday was about as exciting as watching an episode of “The Young and the Restless.” OK, OK, it wasn’t that bad. I have to say I’d rather watch football, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, rugby, CSPAN, grass grow or a wall than sit down and watch a soap opera.

Davis surpasses the 1,000 yard mark

Tailback Mike Davis said he’s been thinking about a 1,000-yard season since before the Missouri game. On Saturday against Mississippi State, Davis finally got his wish, becoming the eighth player in South Carolina history to achieve such a milestone, recording 128 yards on 15 attempts against the Bulldogs.

Behind Enemy Lines

1. What did MSU learn from its first SEC win of the season against Kentucky? I’m sure there must be some momentum going into this week’s game at South Carolina after picking up that important first league win.

Defense prepares for double-threat

If you take away the 96-yard touchdown pass Missouri had Saturday against South Carolina, the Gamecock defense held the Tigers to 308 yards of offense and 17 points, a respectable number in the SEC.

Volleyball escapes scare in five sets

South Carolina players admittedly did not expect to play a five-set match Wednesday night against Coastal Carolina. But, coming off an excruciating SEC stretch that saw the Gamecocks drop five out of their last six SEC matches, South Carolina needed a win in any form possible.

Gamecocks perfect at home

For the South Carolina women’s soccer team, there truly is no place like home. The Gamecocks (14-2-2, 7-2-1 SEC) have allowed just three goals in nine home games this season. Junior keeper Sabrina D’Angelo has posted six shutouts at home and has yet to give up multiple goals in any home game. South Carolina is a perfect 9-0 at Stone Stadium in 2013 and the team will return to its home grounds tonight to close out the season against Kentucky.
