2013 Outback Bowl score update: South Carolina leads Michigan at halftime

USA TODAY Sports

The South Carolina Gamecocks hold a 21-13 lead over the Michigan Wolverines at halftime thanks to three big plays.

At halftime of the Outback Bowl, the South Carolina Gamecocks lead the Michigan Wolverines, 21-13. South Carolina is on top thanks to three big plays: two long passes and a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown by Ace Sanders.

Both Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson have seen time at quarterback for South Carolina and both have thrown for touchdowns. Shaw hit Damiere Byrd for a 56-yard touchdown on the opening drive and Thompson found Sanders for a four-yard score in the second quarter.

Michigan's scoring has been the product of longer, more balanced drives. Denard Robinson has yet to throw the ball, but has been effective as a runner, with 10 carries for 48 yards.

In the most interesting matchup of the game, Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan has held South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney in check during the first half. Time will tell if the best defensive lineman in college football will make his presence known in the second half or if Lewan can keep him bottled up.
