Gamecockfanatics Players Of The Game "Gamecocks vs Razorbacks"
October 08, 2017
Nice isn't it to win a SEC game and do it in fashion by whipping on the Razorbacks to the tune 48-22. Very strong show case from the Gamecocks defense. Lots of big plays from the defenders will be very hard to pick who played to standout and be player of the game.
The key stats to me are therecorded three touchdowns for the first time in modern history. Skai Moore and Keisean Nixon each returned an interception for a score while T.J. Brunson had a 73-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown.
Offense will be a little easier though. Best game running this season with a total of 159 yards for the game, Rico Dowdle ran for 61 yards on 11 carries to lead all rushers. QB Jake Bentley had a fair game no interception, 3 TDS for 199 yards. Top receiver TE Hayden Hurst 2 catches for 76 yards one went for 62 yards, Very good day for Hayden.
but I feel the game changer was with the game tied at 10 in the final minute of the first half, Jake Bentley hit Bryan Edwards with an 18-yard touchdown pass, giving the Gamecocks a 17-10 lead with four seconds remaining. South Carolina took a lead it would never relinquish heading into the halftime locker room.
