Today's Date In Gamecock History
October 12th
2013 - 14th ranked South Carolina traveled to Arkansas and administered a 52-7 beatdown of the 3-3 Razorbacks. USC allowed a touchdown on Arkansas' opening drive but shut them out the rest of the way. The Gamecocks had the ball for an impressive 43:25 of the game, running 537 total yards. After Alex Collins ran for a touchdown for the Razorbacks Elliott Fry hit a 33-yard field goal to cut it to 7-3. USC CB Victor Hampton then intercepted a pass and returned it to the ARK six, setting up a touchdown run from there by Mike Davis, who finished with 128 yards on the ground. Two Connor Shaw to Bruce Ellington touchdown passes pushed the Carolina lead to 24-7 at the half. The Gamecocks kept rolling after the break, as Damiere Byrd scored on a 45-yard pass from Shaw on the first possession, then Jimmy Legree forced an Arkansas fumble, leading to a 10-yard touchdown run by Shaw. Backups took over for USC at that point but didn't let up. Dylan Thompson connected with Arkansas transfer Kane Whitehurst on a 15-yard pass to make it 45-7 and freshman quarterback Brendan Nosovitch had a seven yard run for the final touchdown. The win was to that point the largest margin of victory in a road win in the Spurrier era at USC.

Started a good bit in 1984, hit .327 with .505 on-base percentage
