No. 12 South Carolina pulls by Wofford

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Kenny Miles rushed

for 127 yards and a touchdown and No. 12 South Carolina pulled out a

closer-than-expected 24-7 win over FCS opponent Wofford 24-7 on

Saturday.

The victory gave Steve Spurrier his 64th

win in eight seasons with the Gamecocks (9-2), tying him with Rex

Enright for most ever in program history. But it wasn’t until a 17-point

fourth quarter that Spurrier and South Carolina could rest easy in this

one.

Adam Yates’ 23-yard field goal broke a

7-all tie with 11:57 to go. After the Terriers (8-3) failed on a

4th-and-1 at their 34, Connor Shaw threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Ace

Sanders to widen the lead.

Moments later, Wofford’s Eric Breitenstein fumbled and Akeem Auguste returned it 31 yards for a touchdown, making it 24-7.

It was the Gamecocks 11th straight win

at Williams-Brice Stadium and completed their first perfect run at home

(7-0) since 1987.
