COLUMBIA, S.C.  - Mike Davis ran 75 yards for a touchdown, Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson each threw long scoring passes and All-American Jadeveon Clowney helped No. 6 South Carolina's defense hold North Carolina to its lowest point total under coach Larry Fedora in a 27-10 victory Thursday night.

 

The game was delayed nearly two hours in the fourth quarter by rain. The Gamecocks were already in control by that then.

 

Clowney did not have a sack and finished with three first-half tackles. The Tar Heels' fast-paced offense wore him down and forced him to the sideline for several pit stops, yet he and defense mostly hemmed in the Tar Heels' fast-paced attack. Shaw and Thompson ended things early as South Carolina led 17-0 in the opening quarter.

 

Shaw found Shaq Roland for a 65-yard touchdown on the game's third play. Thompson threw a 29-yard TD to Kane Whitehurst later in the quarter.
