Quarterback Everett Golson has announced he is transferring from Notre Dame for his final season of eligibilty.

The 22-year-old Myrtle Beach native has been rumored to be going back to his home state of South Carolina to play for the Gamecocks and Steve Spurrier.

Golson ends an up-and-down career under head coach Brian Kelly that included a trip to the 2013 National Championship Game vs. Alabama and a 2014 trip to the Music City Bowl against LSU.

His first season in 2011,  Golson was redshirted in favor of sophomore quarterback Tommy Rees led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to an 8-5 record.

In May 2013, it was reported that Golson was suspended from Notre Dame because of an academic violation.

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.

The South Carolina Gamecocks’ spring game is the same day. Spurrier, who is the head coach of South Carolina, is expected to send a videotaped message to his alma mater.

South Carolina surprises #1 Alabama, 35-21

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier finally got the biggest win of his tenure in Columbia, South Carolina.

Stephen Garcia threw three touchdown passes, two to Alshon Jeffrey and Marcus Lattimore scored three times as the 19th rated Gamecocks stunned Number 1 Alabama 35-21 Saturday.

The defending national-champion Crimson Tide had won 19 straight games, including last week’s 31-6 shellacking of Florida and had not lost since the Sugar Bowl after the 2008 season to Utah.

South Carolina, who is 4-1 overall, 2-1 in the SEC, had never beaten a Number 1 team in four previous games.

Spurrier, in his sixth season at South Carolina, had the players to upset Alabama using the Tide’s formula of speedy running backs and elusive wide receivers.

South Carolina depleted the country’s top-rated scoring defense, putting up the most points on Alabama (5-1, 2-1 SEC) since a 41-34 loss to LSU in 2007.

The Gamecocks scored four touchdowns when they got inside the Alabama 20 which was doubled what the Crimson Tide had allowed coming into the game.

The running back duo of Alabama, Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson were held to 64 yards on the ground.
