What The Cluck? South Carolina Football Chokes Against North Carolina

What The Cluck? South Carolina Football Chokes Against North Carolina”

Brown hopes to begin his second stint with the Tar Heels with another win over the Gamecocks on Saturday in Charlotte, NC.

SC would have four possessions to try and score a touchdown to take the lead in the final 10 minutes but UNC's defense stood its ground and forced two turnovers on those three drives. Freshman Sam Howell was named the starting quarterback on Monday and will be able to lean on experienced running backs Michael Carter and Antonio Williams, who combined for more than 1,100 rushing yards last season.

South Carolina: The Gamecocks defense appeared to wear down in the second half, allowing TD drives of 98 and 95 yards.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels will need to learn to trust Howell more as they grow as on offense. Clemson transfer Tavien Feaster ran for 72 yards and a touchdown for the Gamecocks.

SC comes back and scored its second touchdown of the game, after a 60 yard return by Shai Smith eventually sets up Kyle Markway to slip down the middle for the score.

It was on the next UNC drive where the new quarterback exploded, making a game saving 31-yard pass to Dazz Newsome for a first down after North Carolina was backed up onto its own third-yard-line. What transpired Saturday has been a long time coming. Howell completed 15 of 24 passes for 245 yards with a pair of touchdowns and no interceptions. Wolfolk would finally close out the game by making his second interception of the game, taking the ball to the USC 46 line before UNC let the clock run out. Muschamp's team is opening in Charlotte for the fourth time since 2011, and the Gamecocks have won the first three.

UNC will host Miami next Saturday night in the home opener at Kenan Memorial Stadium.
