South Carolina Vs. Nebraska Final Score, Capital One Bowl: Alshon Jeffery Leaves Win Early

The South Carolina Gamecocks have won 11 games for the first time in school history, downing the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 23-13, in the 2012 Capital One Bowl. Considering the milestone, it's a curious assortment of players to have done it. No Stephen Garcia, no Marcus Lattimore, and only three quarters worth of Alshon Jeffery.

Jeffery was ejected after getting into a tiff on the sideline, meaning the biggest stars left on the field for Carolina were ... defensive ends Melvin Ingram and Jadeveon Clowney? It's already a whole new era for the Cocks.

Connor Shaw finishes with 229 yards, but the name you'll remember from this game is Jeffery's. 148 yards and a touchdown, but what a way to go out.
