The Tigers lead 7-0 in the first quarter of the 2010 SEC Championship Game, but not to be outdone, Auburn's defense takes great pans to show it can be just as gracious as South Carolina's.
Bryce Sherman managed a 25-yard kickoff return for the Gamecocks, and on first down, Stephen Garcia hits Alshon Jeffery for a 13-yard pass down the middle. Freshman phenom tailback Marcus Lattimore gets the next two touches, and gains four yards. Garcia, faced with 3rd-and-5, pulls a classic Spurrier move and hits D.L. Moore for an 18-yard gain, then rushes himself for 7 yards on the Gamecocks' next first down. One more pass to Jeffery for 12 yards, and South Carolina is well within striking distance. And strike they do, with Garcia hitting a wide-open Patrick DiMarco over the middle for a 25-yard touchdown. With 10:17 remaining in the first quarter, the 2010 SEC Championship Game is tied, 7-7.
