Fan Sound Off: South Carolina win and Clemson loss have Gamecocks fans elated

South Carolina-Bryan Edwards

South Carolina survived Tennessee in Week 7, clinging to a 15-9 win over the Volunteers.

The Gamecocks controlled the line of scrimmage en route to 194 rushing yards. A.J. Turner scored the game’s lone touchdown on a 20-yard run in the third quarter. Parker White, however, missed the PAT attempt.

Tennessee had a chance to win with nine seconds and a first down on the South Carolina 2-yard line, courtesy of a pass interference call. Jarrett Guarantano, making his first career start for the Vols, failed in three attempts to punch the ball into the end zone.

The win is the second in a row for Will Muschamp over Tennessee. The Gamecocks are now 5-2 on the year, including 3-2 in the SEC.

Gamecocks fans were happy with the win, particularly with the team’s defensive effort, which held the Vols to 253 total yards.
