Good news: South Carolina improved at tackling! Bad news ...


The first touchdown of the FBS season -- achieved by Bug Howard, who's Bug Howard -- involved two South Carolina defensive backs knocking each other out of contention.

This follows an offseason in which a primary concern for the Gamecocks was whether some coaching adjustments and some JUCO imports would be enough to shore up a D that ranked No. 104 in yards allowed per play. Lots of teams will struggle against UNC this year, but considering only an easy interception kept the Heels out of the end zone on the previous drive as well ... hey, this is probably a good sign SC can upset Georgia, at least!
