COLLEGE FOOTBALL: #9 South Carolina gets past Vanderbilt, 17-13

 

The South Carolina Gamecocks and head coach Steve Spurrier traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to take on a scrappy Vanderbilt team.

The Gamecocks were able to survive due to the fact they received big games from Marcus Lattimore and Connor Shaw.

Lattimore ran for two touchdowns and 110 yards in his first game back after tearing his left ACL, and Shaw rushed for 92 yards while playing the second half with an injured shoulder as South Carolina rallied a 17-13 win over the Commodores on Thursday night.

Shaw bruised his right, throwing shoulder late in the first half and missed the first two series of the third quarter before returning to action.

The junior quarterback down the field for the go-ahead touchdown as Lattimore did the honors on a 1-yard run with 11:25 to go in the game. Shaw is now 9-1 as a starter at QB.

South Carolina, normally a high-yardage passing team, only garnered 67 yards through the air, which is very rare.

Vanderbilt and head coach James Franklin wanted a sellout crowd at Vanderbilt Stadium, which seats 39,773; did pack in 38,393 fans who did their part in the “blackout” by wearing all black. It seemed to give the Commodores a big boost, as they earned three sacks, forced two turnovers and outgained South Carolina 276-272 in total offense.

LIBERTY BOWL preview: Cincinnati, Vanderbilt hookup today at 3:30 PM ET on ABC in Memphis

 

The Cincinnati Bearcats (9-3) takes on the Vanderbilt Commodores (6-6) in the December 31 Liberty Bowl.

This is the 53rd edition of the Memphis bowl.

The Bearcats have a load of talent led by their quarterbacks Zach Collaros, if he is recovered from an ankle injury, Munchie Legaux and Isaiah Pead, the all-Big East running back.

One of the reasons for the Bearcats turnaround-season was a much-improved defense which was steady enough despite a series of key injuries and an inexperienced secondary and an overhauled defensive line that came up with 35 sacks in a nine-game period. Cincy is among the nation’s leaders in turnover margin.

New Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin came and changed a losing culture into a winning atmosphere and did just that.

Vandy is playing in just its fifth game in its history.

The Commodores rallied back from back-to-back 2-10 records to 6-6.

Vanderbilt’s QB is Jordan Rodgers, brother of Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers.

The 2011 Advocare Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana, will pit a pair of 7-5 teams against each other.

The Missouri Tigers of the Big 12 Conference against the North Carolina Tar Heels of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The 2010 game had Air Force playing Georgia Tech. The Falcons beat the Yellow Jackets, 17-14.

The Tar Heels are playing in its fourth consecutive bowl game, the school’s longest streak since a five-game run from 1979-1983.

North Carolina is coming into the game on a down note, having only won a single game against Duke after becoming bowl eligible with their sixth win on October 29.

If the Tar Heels win the game, their achieve their fourth straight eight-win season.

The Tigers of Missouri won four of their last five games after starting off a disappointing 3-4. Missouri beat Texas for the first time in head coach Gary Pinkel’s tenure, 17-5.

Shreveport, Louisiana is not a stranger for Missouri. The Tigers are playing there for the third time since 2005 due to the fact that the Big 12 had eight-bowl eligible teams for the league’s seven bowl games. Missouri was pushed out of the top seven spots despite the fact it earned wins over Iowa State, Texas and Texas A&M.

Missouri’s offense is led by QB James Franklin, a sophomore, who completed 63% of his attempts with only 10 interceptions. During the season, he had an interception-free streak of 123 in a row.

The Tar Heels offense is led by  WR Dwight Jones who led the ACC in receptions with 79 and was tied for the league lead with 11 touchdown catches with 11. Also on offense is RB Giovani Bernard a big-play runner who averages 5.4 yards per carry and totaled 1,222 yards rushing.
