vs TEMPLE APPhiladelphia, P.A. A 21-0 first quarter rout was not enough to give Carolina head coach Jackson Brantley the confidence to put in the back ups. As it turned out, that was a smart decision as Temple used its home crowd and an offensive explosion by Owl quarterback Cedric Brooks to give the Gamecocks all they could handle. Brooks, the seasoned Owl quarterback, completed an astounding 31-50 passes for 669 yds and 7 TDs with one interception. The Garnet and Black defense had no answer whatsoever for the Temple quarterback or his underrated wide receiver corps. Luckily for the Carolina defense, the Carolina offense came to play today also. Carolina freshmen quarterback Tyrone Madison completed 17-25 passes for 409 yds and 4 TDs with one interception. "We saw the field very well today and managed to get some great matchups against their man coverage" Madison said after the game. The fiery quarterback can't take all the credit for the win today though, as senior running back Ronnie Johnson rushed the ball 21 times for 256 and 3 TDs. The Temple defense's inability to tackle Johnson cost them dearly. "They just had a hard time wrapping him up all game long and he just kept the legs moving and powering forward" Coach Jackson stated happily after the game. Up next the Gamecocks look forward to a major match up with the Pittsburgh Panthers.
