Score: 7-0 Gamecocks (0:00)
Player of the quarter so far: South Carolina WR Kenny McKinley
Play of the quarter: Gamecocks recover fumble on the VU 20. (8:17 1st)
Notes from the first VU drive:
• We elected to receive the ball first. I like it.
• Hawkins picks up 6 yards on his first carry, then gets a first down on his second carry. Wow.
• Jamie Graham takes the pitch on a double reverse and gets another 6 yards.
• Hawkins is a machine. Another first down. (13:00)
• Brandon Barden just dropped a pass on third down.
• Bad bounce on the punt (11:05)
Notes from first SC drive:
• We look good. Good pass defense, good run defense, and pressure on the QB.
• Broderick Stewart is on a brand new left tackle for the Gamecocks.
Notes from second VU drive:
• Man, Chris Nickson is quick. Just evaded the rush and hit Gaston for a short pass. (9:07)
• False start on TE Monahan. We can't do stuff like that.
• Gaston Miller gets stuck and fumbles. Gamecocks have ball on 20 (8:17).
Notes from second SC drive:
• Davis is a tough runner for the Gamecocks. 2nd and goal at the 5. (7:02)
• Huge sack on Smelley by Greg Billinger. Back to the 10. 3rd down.
• False start on the tight end. Spurrier true to his word and pulls the kid from the game.
• Kenny McKinley takes Myron Lewis to school in the end zone.
Notes from third VU drive:
• Nickson outruns three tacklers... and picks up three yards.
• Three and out.
Notes from third SC drive:
• VU losing the field position battle. Gamecocks start on their 40.
• Chris Marve hammers Davis.
• Just got burned on third down. Cook is a heck of an athletic tight end.
• Spurrier going for the knockout. 14-0 would be almost insurmountable.
• Myron Lewis denies McKinley of a first down reception.
• Another false start for the SC left tackle. Spurrier not pulling him.
• Huge interception by Reshard Langford with a long return to about the SC45.
Notes from fourth VU drive:
• Horrible pass by Nickson but SC's Jasper Brinkley can't catch it.
• Nickson isn't going to get 166 yards in this one. Man, the Gamecocks are fast.
• Great catch by Wheeler but fourth down.
• Penalty on punt. 15 yards against VU. (0:09)
