Probably the most highly anticipated game ever as the 8-0 and 5th-ranked Gamecocks hosted #11 Florida State on ABC TV.
The game didn’t disappoint.
Paced by two Thomas Dendy first-half TDs, Carolina led 17-7 at halftime. That’s when Raynard Brown placed himself in Gamecock lore forever with a thrilling 99-yard return of the second-half kickoff.
From that point on, it was all USC as they built a 38-7 lead.
