The South Carolina Gamecocks should not have had much trouble with the Citadel Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon, but the 12th-ranked team in the country still found itself tied at seven points apiece after the first quarter of play. The halftime score looks a bit more encouraging, however, as Brandon Wilds has rushed for two touchdowns to take 20-13 lead into the intermission.
South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw didn't have the best first half. Despite completing 11 of his 13 passing attempts, he compiled just 110 yards and added an interception to cap off his first half passing statistics. His running game has looked a bit better, however, as he's rushed for 81 yards on nine attempts and added a touchdown to boot.
Wilds has carried for just 37 yards on 11 carries, but has added two touchdown runs from within five yards of the goal line to give the Gamecocks the halftime lead.
Citadel, sporting a 2-6 record in games played in their Southern Conference, was able to put a field goal on the board with three seconds left in the first half to make it a one-score game when the second half begins. Their lone touchdown came when running back Darien Robinson fumbled into the end zone before recovering it for six points.
