The Gamecocks defeat fourth-ranked Ole Miss by a score of 16-10.
This is the highest ranked opponent that Carolina had ever beaten at home.
In front of an ESPN audience on Thursday night, USC controlled the game most of the way.
After three Spencer Lanning FGs, FB Patrick DiMarco scored USC’s only TD of the night on a two-yard reception from Stephen Garcia. This gave the Gamecocks a 16-3 lead.
They would hold on for the big win after a late Ole Miss TD pass cut the lead to 16-10.
