Today, we are taking a look at some of the individual statistical leaders for South Carolina and how they stack up against the rest of the SEC.
We will start off with USC’s statistical leader at running back, Marcus Lattimore.
Lattimore is tied for first in the conference in total number of carries, tied for second in touchdowns, tied for third in points per game, and tied for sixth in rushing yards per game.
Never miss a local story.
South Carolina’s leading passer, Stephen Garcia, is also among the conference leaders.
Garcia is second in the SEC in completion percentage, sixth in passing yards per game, and tied for seventh in touchdown passes.
Alshon Jeffery, the top pass catcher for the Gamecocks, is not only one of the best in the conference, but also one of the national leaders.
Jeffery leads the conference in catches, and is 5th, among players with at least 10 catches, in yards per catch. He also leads the conference, and is third in the nation, in yards per game.
South Carolina, statistically, has some very solid offensive weapons. If Steve Spurrier and company can get all cylinders clicking at the same time, they should be able to put up some big numbers this year.
