The first touchdown of the college football season: South Carolina's Shaq Roland catches 65-yarder

The college football season is under wa-- oh South Carolina already scored.

We didn't have to wait long for the first score of the 2013 college football season: after just two rushing plays, Connor Shaw looked deep and hit Shaq Roland on a post route streaking past the North Carolina secondary, and less than 90 seconds into the game, we had a score.

Shaq attack! Steve Spurrier loves playing two quarterbacks, but if Shaw can hit that route? He might be getting more than a few snaps.

For an explanation of the play:

And now the really bad news: Now North Carolina has to deal with Jadeveon Clowney. Wow, the SEC is taking even shorter than normal to prove it is way better than everybody else this year.

It certainly sorta killed the mood set by North Carolina's awesome hit on the opening kickoff: Scarko_medium
