VIDEO OF THE DAY
In case you missed it at the game, the Gamecocks had 4th and 5 at the Arkansas 42-yard line. Connor Shaw finds Bruce Ellington who gets to the end zone for the score with just 1:30 remaining in the first half aiding in the Gamecock's eventual 38-20 win over Arkansas!
D.J. Swearinger was named the National Defensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. The 6-foot, 210-pounder from Greenwood, S.C. totaled a career-best 13 tackles (10 solo), including one for a loss, and added one interception which he returned 69 yards for a touchdown as the 12th-ranked Gamecocks defeated Arkansas, 38-20.
The South Carolina swimming and diving teams put forth one of their best efforts of season on Friday night as they swept College of Charleston in a dual meet. The Gamecock men defeated the Cougars, 178-115, while the Carolina women captured its first win of the season with a 169-126 victory. Junior Narayan Naik led the way with three first-place finishes: the 100 backstroke (58.27), 200 backstroke (2:06.98) and 400 IM (4:37.84).
FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY
"We have been in prayer for him, made him some HUGE cards with Gamecock Handprints. My children actually feel as if they know him. I was at the USC-vs-TN game and when I came back to school on Monday they asked me if I was OK because my friend Marcus got hurt! How precious are 3 & 4 year old children? Sending our love and prayers for our Mentor Marcus!"
