USC runs its record to 4-0 on the year with a decisive 49-17 victory over Kansas State, despite completing only six passes in the game.
Carolina races out to a 21-7 lead in an action-packed first quarter, after a Chris Corley 25-yard TD reception. The Gamecocks veer running attack would then take control of the game, rolling up 350 yards on the ground.
Carolina moved into the AP Poll for the first time in four years after this win, coming in at No. 17. They would climb all the way up to as high as No. 2 in the “Black Magic” season of 1984.
