(Sports) Gamecocks Beat Clemson 4th straight year

The South Carolina Gamecocks beat the Clemson Tigers 27-17 at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina on Saturday night, before a crowd of more than 82,000 fans. It marked the fourth straight season that South Carolina had beaten their arch-rivals.

Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier picked up his 65th career win at USC to become the winningest football coach in school history, surpassing Rex Enright.

Back-up quarterback Dylan Thompson, filling in for Connor Shaw who sprained his foot last week against Wofford, threw for three touchdowns, and Jadeveon Clowney had four and a half sacks in the Gamecocks victory. Clowney has 13 sacks this year to set a Gamecocks single-season record.

(Sports) Grinnell College’s Jack Taylor Scores NCAA Record 138 points

“It felt like anything I tossed up was going in,” Taylor said afterward, which suggests he’s not too concerned about the 56 shots he actually missed in this game. The 5-foot-10 sophomore from Wisconsin finished 52-of-108 from the field and 27-of-71 from 3-point range — Yes, Taylor really did launch 71 3-pointers — in 36 minutes. He has now scored 185 points in three games this season, meaning Taylor is averaging — ready for this? — 61.7 points per game for the Division-III school in Iowa known for its exciting style of play featuring a constant full-court press and really, really fast-paced attack.

Taylor scored his 100th point with a little more than eight minutes remaining while teammate Griffin Lentsch — who scored a then-Division-III-record 89 points a mere 366 days ago — finished with only seven. Meantime, David Larson scored 70 for Faith Baptist Bible. That’s not bad. But it’s not 138, either.

(Sports) SCSU Bulldogs End Season With Win Over Tigers

The South Carolina State Bulldogs (5-6 overall, 4-4 MEAC) close out the regular season with a, 27-13 victory over Savannah State (1-10, 0-8 MEAC) Saturday at Dawson Stadium/Jeffries Field. South Carolina State saluted and honored 17 seniors who played their final home game against Savannah State on the day.

Red-shirt junior quarterback Richard Cue (6-1, 180) finished with 214 yards pass throwing 14-of-33-2 for two touchdowns in the victory. Freshman Tamarrick Hemingway (6-5, 210) led the receiving corps with five catches for 81 yards.

The Bulldogs defense was spearheaded by senior linebacker Cortney Ingram (5-10, 190) with 10 tackles to close out his career. Sophomore’s Andrew Carter (6-1, 240) and Justin Hughes (6-1, 220) each added 10 tackles, two sacks, and two tackles for loss on the day.

“First I would like to thank those seniors who played their heart out for SC State, this football team, and our coaches and me,” said SC State head coach Buddy Pough. “We when thru some things this year that we are not accustomed to, but we made it thru the storm.”

(Sports) USC Marcus Lattimore out indefinitely after knee injury vs. Tennessee

South Carolina All-American Marcus Lattimore may have suffered a season-ending injury for the second straight year after a knee injury against Tennessee. With his Gamecocks up 21-14 and 4:45 remaining in the second quarter, Lattimore carried off left tackle and was met by Volunteer defenders Herman Lathers and Eric Gordon. Gordon’s helmet appeared to make direct contact with Lattimore’s right knee, which buckled in stomach-turning fashion.

The school announced after No. 17 South Carolina’s 38-35 win that Lattimore was out indefinitely. Lattimore missed the final six games of last season after tearing ligaments in his right knee against Mississippi State. He needed surgery and about six months of rehab before he was cleared to return to practice.

Lattimore lay on the ground in obvious distress before being carted off the field. In a touching gesture, players from both sidelines emptied onto the field to wish the junior the best as he departed the field.

Lattimore was taken off the field on a cart and went to the hospital for further evaluation. Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier didn’t give details of the injury, only that it was every bit as devastating as the one to Lattimore’s left knee last fall at Mississippi State. Lattimore had surgery to repair ligaments and cartilage, then needed six months of rehabilitation and recovery before he was cleared to return to action.

(Sports) Tennessee vs. South Carolina: Latest Spread Info, BCS Impact and Predictions

The 2012 season hasn’t gone as planned for either the No.13 team in the country, the South Carolina Gamecocks (6-2, 4-2 SEC), or the Tennessee Volunteers (3-4, 0-4 SEC).

South Carolina watched its hopes of both a SEC Championship and a National Championship vanish last week after losing its second conference game in a row, a 44-11 thumping courtesy of the No. 2 Florida Gators in Gainesville.

Tennessee was equally embarrassed at the hands of No. 1 Alabama, a 44-13 drubbing that not only marked the Volunteers’ third consecutive loss of the season, but their fourth loss in the past five games.

One team’s fortune is going to change when the two meet on Saturday afternoon.

Here’s everything you need to know heading into the game.

Where: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, SC

When: Saturday, Oct. 27, 12:00 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN

Listen: WNML FM 99.1/99.3 in Knoxville, WNKT-FM 107.5 in Columbia

(Sports) Clemson vs.Virginia Tech 12:00PM

The Clemson Tigers had high expectations heading into this season, starting out the season ranked 14th in the coaches’ poll. Of all teams in the ACC, they had the best chance to play in the BCS title game.

All they have done to backup the hype this season is go 5-1 in their first six games with their only loss coming to No. 4 Florida State on the road. Going into Week 5, they have lived up to the hype as Tajh Boyd has led the Tigers into BCS contention.

However, their schedule has been a little weak this season. Continue reading

(Sports) College GameDay: No. 3 Florida vs. No. 9 South Carolina

No. 3 Florida vs. No. 9 South Carolina, 3:30 p.m. Saturday

The game will include two top-10 teams, ESPN’s College GameDay on location in Gainesville and the return of Gator legend Steve Spurrier. This is just the seventh time in school history that South Carolina (6-1, 4-1 SEC) has entered a game ranked in the top 10 and playing another top-10 opponent — but the third time in as many weeks. South Carolina is 1-5 in those games. Florida is 6-0 for the eighth time in school history and 5-0 in the league. South Carolina enters the game with a two-game winning streak over the Gators, but in 32 meetings Florida has never lost three in a row to the Gamecocks.

Watch out for …

This was supposed to be a showcase battle between Florida RB Mike Gillislee and South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore — two of the SEC’s best. But Lattimore has a bruised his hip and is questionable. His value? USC has never lost when he has at least 20 carries. If he can’t go, the Gamecocks have capable backups, but it puts more pressure on QB Connor Shaw and the passing game. Florida has relied more on the run than the arm of QB Jeff Driskel, who threw just 20 passes last week, but the Gators insist they aren’t one-dimensional and can break out the passing game if necessary.
