No. 13 South Carolina offense getting it done

Posted: Updated:

South Carolina has displayed an offensive surge that even "Fun-n-Gun" creator Steve Spurrier didn't fully see coming from the No. 13 Gamecocks.

With a defense led by All-American Jadeveon Clowney, the Gamecocks (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) figured they'd win the way they had the past few years - by locking down opponents and getting just enough points to leave victorious.

Instead, it's the offense that's making big plays and getting South Carolina ahead in games with the early struggles of Clowney and the defense. The Gamecocks hope to crank up the offense again Saturday when they face Vanderbilt (1-1, 0-1).

South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw has three touchdowns and completed 60 percent of his passes. Tailback Mike Davis has a pair of 75-yard runs, averaging nearly 10 yards a carry.
