    #13 Clemson 47
    #12 Pitt 31

    Pittsburgh, PA

    2015 begins well for your Clemson Tigers. In what was a great all-around, the Tigers prevailed 47 - 31. Most of the Tiger offense came from the two players, QB Brett Tate and WR Sammy Watkins. Tate was 26 of 41 with 443 yards passing, 2 TD and only 1 pick. Watkins began his the defense of his Heisman title with 11 catches for 218 yards and 1 touchdown. While the passing game lit it up, the rushing attack proved effective as well, Mike Davis ran for 93 yards on 26 carries and scored twice.

    Eric McCloud had the play of the game. Even though he had only 2 tackes, one was a safety late in the game that sealed Pitt's fate. Clemson was able to get two picks against the opposing QB, one from Harold Shaffer and one from Thomas Adams.

    The Pitt Clemson rivalry is turning into a great one and fans are already inquiring about tickets to next years match-up in Clemson.

    UCLA 38
    South Carolina 34

    UCLA notches it's first win of the season over the visiting South Carolina Gamecocks at the Rose Bowl. It was a back and forth contest as each team traded scores going into the final quarter, and it was UCLA that scored the game-winner with 12 seconds left on a 7-yard option keep by QB Bryan Bower (17-20 passing, 254 yards, 3 TDs). Except for a long run by FB Rashard Wright right up the middle, the UCLA running game was kept mostly in check, so it was the passing of Bower that powered the UCLA offense.

    South Carolina nearly pulled off a miracle victory in the final seconds, as a Gamecock receiver hauled in a deep pass down the sideline on the last play of the game and almost went for a score before being caught from behind by a UCLA defender.

    UCLA travels to Maryland next week to face Navy.

    Navy Dominates BC
    Navy 52
    BC 21

    On the first drive of the game BC tossed a screen to the halfback who broke 80 yards. After that Navy’s offense and defense was very, very good. Navy didn’t allow a point in the 2nd half and had many standouts on offense and defense. I was not expecting such an easy victory this week.

    Pasadena, C.A.- Coach Jackson Brantley made his debut today with the Fighting Gamecocks of South Carolina. After a three thousand mile trip, unanswered questions about his team and a rowdy crowd, the Gamecocks will return to Columbia with a heart breaking loss and people looking for answers about the quarterback situation. "Well when you look at the score you certainly wouldn't think we had any questions about our quarterback right now but you'd be wrong" Coach Brantley stated in the post game press conference. "We've got a fifth year senior quarterback in the pocket who can't hit wide open touch downs or make critical third down throws."

    When asked about the possibility of opening up the position race for Carolina's matchup next week, against conference rival Georgia, Coach left no stone unturned. "Well I think it's pretty darn obvious that we have to open it up. Heck even to the guys who just got here this summer. We'll see who can throw a catchable ball and go from there. " Coach Jackson was asked if he was being to harsh after only one game and he was quick to respond. "Did you see the game?! We're not talking about a freshmen or sophmore out there playing, we're talking about a fifth year senior who has been in this type of system for four years. I certainly don't think we're being too harsh at all about the situation. He made all the reads he needed to and managed the game well but if you can't throw to wide open guys we need to put someone in there who can."

    While this was a tough loss for the Gamecocks one would think it would be a moral victory, one would be wrong about that also after talking to Coach. "Moral victory? I'm not interested in moral victories. I'm interested in catching touchdowns and knocking people around. I didn't take this job to settle for the Gaylord Music City Bowl or to finish second in this state every year. I took this job because the facilities are here and the talent is available in state to turn this into a contender and winner. It's not going to be easy and it's going to take hard work, recruit evaluation and summer workouts but I'm here to win and win now." Coach Jackson certainly isn't a man of few words but if you're expecting a happy go lucky guy guess again. When all is said and done this is the kind of coach South Carolina needs. He is a no nonsense, hard working type of professional who will not stop until he achieves his goals. Now the only question is will South Carolina pony up the money when they start reaping the rewards of this hard work.


    South Carolina will travel to Athens, GA to open up their conference slate. Tickets are still available for students if they call the ticket office. Remember to stay tuned for all the latest Gamecock information at Black&Garnet.com!!

    Clemson 47 Pittsburgh 31

    For the second consecutive year, Pitt drops it's opening game against the Tigers. Seth Tate played well in his first start, 466 yards and 3 touchdowns, but wasn't able to pull the comeback out in the end. Today's game certainly cannot be a good sign for Pitt's secondary. Heisman trophy winner Sammy Watkins piked up where he left off last year with 11 catches for 218 yards and one touchdown. First year stater Brett Tate shredded Pitt's defense for 443 yards. The highlight for Pitt this afternoon would be the play of it's receiving core. Mason, Perkins, and Archer combined for 20 catches, 455 yards, and three touchdowns. There was no running game to speak of for the Panthers being held to 20 yards on only 5 attempts. After the game coach BigKing said the team can't rely entirely on the pass and stressed that handing the ball to Marcus Davenport will be a much bigger priority going forward. The Panthers will need to rebound quickly if they hope to have a chance in Columbus next week against the second ranked Buckeyes.

    #2 Ohio St. 38 Kentucky 10

    The undermanned wildcats were able to hang with the buckeyes for 2 and 1/2 qtrs. today but in the end the buckeyes were just to strong. With the wildcats down 21-10 mid third the buckeys linebacker stepped in front of a Clark pass for his second redzone pick of the game. This turned out to be the play of the game as Ohio St. went down and scored with a minute left in the third to build their lead up to 28-10. the Wildcats never threatened again as the buckeyes added 10 4th qtr. points to pull away.

    Wildcats Qb. Clark was 14 of 26 for 269 yards 1 td and 2 costly picks.

    The wildats running game never got going running for 29 yards on 16 carries.

    The bright spot of the day for the wildcats was senior wr Berry with 3 catches for 122 yards. The buckeyes the game with their running attack carring 31 times for 257 yards and 4 tds.
