As you can see, the biggest highlight was an incredible Ace Sanders punt return After getting stuffed on an impressive early drive that ended at the Missouri one-yard line, Sanders rocked it back to nearly the exact same spot. South Carolina dominated from there, as Marcus Lattimore would punch it in. A Missouri fumble on the next possession set up another Lattimore score and put South Carolina in a dominant position.
Connor Shaw had an impressive performance, as you can see from some of the highlights above. Shaw had only one incompletion on the day, throwing 20 for 21 for 249 yards and two touchdowns. One of his touchdowns went to Sanders for 23 yards, the other to Rory Anderson for 12.
