Gamecocks hold off Vanderbilt 35-25 for first SEC win

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Connor Shaw passed for three scores, Jadeveon Clowney forced a fumble and No. 13 South Carolina withstood Vanderbilt's rally from a four-touchdown deficit for a 35-25 victory Saturday night.

The win was the 13th straight at home for the Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference), who are tied with Georgia for the second-longest active streak in the nation. South Carolina appeared to have this one finished early, scoring on its first four possessions to lead 28-0. It still led 35-10 when it opened the second half with Shaw's final TD pass, a 33-yarder to Brandon Wilds.

That's when the Commodores (1-2, 0-2) threw a scare into the Gamecocks, aided by a fumbled kickoff and punt by South Carolina. Vanderbilt scored twice in a 13-second span of the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 35-25.

The Commodores reached the Gamecocks 5 after recovering a fumbled punt, but threw a goal-line interception.
