SC escapes Louisiana Tech with late field goal

SC escapes Louisiana Tech with late field goal”

White's redemption, however, was secured with the game winning field goal.

SC had just 55 seconds to score, trailing 16-14 in the fourth quarter when Gamecock quarterback Jake Bentley hit Edwards on a 41-yard bomb, and look at this dang catch by Edwards.

Redshirt freshman Parker White connected on a 31-yard field goal with five seconds left to lift the Gamecocks.

But the Bulldogs didn't go away quietly on the next drive - Louisiana Tech quarterback J'Mar Smith led his team down the field to the SC 10-yard line, setting up a 25-yard field goal to go up 16-14. Teddy Veal caught 10 passes for 110 yards.

Louisiana Tech: Bulldogs coach Skip Holtz is now 0-8 coaching against Southeastern Conference teams. Holtz was an assistant for his father, Lou, at SC for six seasons and was initially promised the Gamecocks job when his dad retired.

Frankly, South Carolina is fortunate to get the victory today.

Edwards finished with five catches for 81 yards, including the 41-yarder.

Louisiana Tech: The Bulldogs host South Alabama on Saturday in their final non-conference game of the year. In fact, his first career field goal as a Gamecock was the game-winner today.
