In this battle of the Carolinas, it looked hopeless for the Gamecocks as they trailed the Tar Heels 27-3 early in the fourth quarter.
However, USC would mount what may have been its greatest comeback ever.
QB Tommy Suggs and RB Warren Muir led the Gamecocks back from the dead. Suggs hit Fred Ziegler with an 18-yard TD pass, and scored the winning TD on a late four-yard scamper.
Muir had two fourth quarter TDs as well, as the Gamecocks stunned the Tar Heels 32-27.
