COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Connor Shaw passed for a touchdown and ran for a score in less than a quarter of work as No. 12 South Carolina scored the most points in Steve Spurrier's nine seasons as coach in a 70-10 victory over Coastal Carolina on Saturday.

The Gamecocks (9-2) scored on their first six possessions and surpassed their output from a 69-24 win over Troy in 2010. And it came with South Carolina resting several starters for rival Clemson next Saturday night, including defensive linemen Jadeveon Clowney and Kelcy Quarles and the Southeastern Conference's leading rusher in Mike Davis.

The Gamecocks won their record 17th straight game at home and Shaw improved to 25-5 as a starter, moving past Todd Ellis' wins mark

The news wasn't all bad for Coastal Carolina (10-2). The Chants learned before halftime they shared a Big South championship and earned the league's FCS playoff bid.

The Gamecocks will now face Clemson at home on November 30th at 7 pm.
