COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Former grad assistant Zeb Noland threw a 9-yard, game-winning touchdown to Xavier Legette with 37 seconds left in the Gamecocks 21-20 victory over Vanderbilt.
The Commodores lost their 16th straight against Southeastern Conference opponents while the Gamecocks snapped their nine-game losing streak. Vanderbilt’s defense held South Carolina scoreless for 49 minutes until Noland directed the 75-yard, all-passes drive for the Gamecocks 13th straight win in the series.
South Carolina receiver Jaheim Bell had six catches for 136 yards and a touchdown.
Next up for the Gamecocks is a road trip against Texas A&M October 23.
