Congrats to some Gamecocks

We need to some some love to some gamecocks players after they did some special things this past game....
  • Jarvis Giles and Tori Gurley made history.....Giles had 113 rushing yards and Gurley had 100 receiving yards. It's the 25th time that the Gamecocks have had a 100-yard receiver and runner in the same game. It's the first time it's happened since the 2007 Tennessee game. They become the first Gamecocks freshmen to do that since 2005, when Mike Davis and Sidney Rice accomplished the feat.
  • USC DT Melvin Ingram got his first sack of his career vs FAU.
  • USC LB Eric Norwood got another sack but this one on FAU qb Rusty Smith in the third quarter tied him with Andrew Provence for the school's sacks lead, with 26.
  • Coach Spurrier's son got a 13 yard catch, good job Scotty.
  • Stephon Gilmore picked up his first career interception and his first fumble recovery.
  • Kenny Miles picked up his first career carries, rushing five times for 56 yards
  • Reid McCollum took his first career snap and had the first completion of his career vs FAU
  • Tony Straughter recorded his first career start v FAU
  • USC's Chris Culliver broke the USC career kickoff returns record vs. FAU.  He now has 78 which is 2 more than Robert Brooks.
  • Moe Brown’s 50-yard run to open the game was the longest Gamecock rushing play since a Mike Davis run in the season opener against N.C. State in 2008.
  • Brian Maddox’s touchdown at the 13:39 mark of the first quarter was the fastest Gamecock touchdown since South Carolina joined the SEC. It was the fastest score since the Gamecocks hit a field goal against Arkansas on November 3, 2003 at the 13:53 mark of the first quarter.
