  • With the 35-25 win over Vanderbilt, the Gamecocks have now won five straight in the series and are 19-4 all-time. South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier now holds a 19-2 career record over the Commodores.
  • The Gamecocks’ home winning streak now sits at 13-straight games, tying for the second-longest home winning streak in school history. The total ties South Carolina with Georgia for the second-longest streak in Division I football, only behind Michigan’s 16-straight home wins.
  • Tonight’s game is the highest-scoring contest between the two teams since a 35-28 South Carolina home victory on Oct. 22, 2005. South Carolina’s 35 points are the most in the series since the 2005 conference tilt.


  • Tonight’s first-half drives of 93 and 92 yards, marks the first time the Gamecocks have recorded multiple drives of over 90 yards in a game since a 2011 contest against The Citadel. It’s the first occurrence in conference play since a matchup with No. 12 Arkansas in 2006.
  • The 93-yard drive in the first quarter capped by a four-yard Mike Davis touchdown is the longest since a 94-yard drive against UAB last year.
  • The 579 yards of total offense and 31 first downs are second only to a 2011 matchup against Kentucky in the Steve Spurrier era when the Gamecocks recorded 639 yards and 32 first downs.
  • Junior wide receiver Bruce Ellington recorded the third 100-yard receiving game of his career. Ellington brought down eight passes for 111 yards, both career highs.
  • Sophomore tailback Mike Davis’ 67 receiving yards on three receptions eclipses his career high of 49 set last week at Georgia. His 38-yard reception is longest of his career. Davis also scored a rushing touchdown for the third game in a row.
  • Sophomore tailback Brandon Wilds had 65 receiving yards on the night, a career high. His 33-yard reception is the longest of his career as well.


  • Junior defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s forced fumble in the third quarter is the ninth of his career.
  • Senior cornerback Jimmy Legree notched a career-high two tackles for loss. Legree’s fourth-quarter interception is the fourth of his career, and his seven tackles tie a career-high set in last season’s contest against Vanderbilt.
  • Other defensive career highs – Sophomore linebacker Marcquis Roberts’ seven tackles, senior defensive end Chaz Sutton’s 1.5 sacks. Junior defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles also tied a career high with one sack. Spur linebackers Sharrod Golightly, a junior, and Jordan Diggs, a redshirt freshmen, both recorded a tackle for loss apiece.


  • Freshman placekicker Elliot Fry improved to 11-12 on PATs and has now scored 20 points on the season.
