The Gamecocks handed the NC State Wolfpack arguably the worst beating ever witnessed at Williams-Brice Stadium.
The final score read USC 48, NC State 0, but that didn’t tell the entire story.
The ninth-ranked Gamecocks completely shut down NC State, allowing only 36 total yards in the game.
Coach Joe Morrison and the Gamecocks were none too pleased with what had happened the year before in Raleigh against State, being beaten by a last-play Hail Mary pass and very questionable officiating. They got a measure of revenge and then some.
RB Harold Green scored three TDs while Sterling Sharpe tallied 118 receiving yards.
