The Jackets ran into a buzz saw this day as Brandon Bennett scored two quick first quarter TDs, leading the Gamecocks to a big 20-0 halftime advantage. Tech regrouped at halftime and scored two third quarter TDs to cut the deficit to only six. However, a Marty Simpson 38-yard FG with 8:16 remaining in the game put it out of reach and sealed the victory for Carolina.
