    South Carolina 21 Texas 17

    In what appeared to be a defensive struggle for a long time, both teams woke up late and either team could have walked away with the victory! The Gamecocks has the 7-0 lead off the Conner Shaw pass to DL Moore... but later Texas would score a fg to make it a 7-3 game in the third... then in the 4th David Ash ran it in from 9 yds away to give texas the lead and then put the long horns on top with a td pass from 1 yd out to Grant with 3:32 left in the 4th to give the Long Horns a 17-7 lead. This looked like the end of the game for South Carolina. But after Lattimore got a nice 10 yd run on the 1st play, they went to a play action pass that found ace sanders behind the defense for a 44 yd td catch. Then after the recovered onside kick, the Gamecocks drove the length of the field and pounded the ball and clock away until Wilds ran it in on 3rd down with 12 seconds left and no time outs left... when asked what they would have done if they did not get that TD score, coach fitted simply said "hoped they busted they ass to that line and pushed in before the time expired". This was a big win for the gamecocks coming off a lowly loss to Iowa in a game that wasnt even close!
