COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — ZaQuandre White was South Carolina’s leading rusher with 99 yards and top receiver with 69 yards as the Gamecocks beat Auburn 21-17.
South Carolina is now bowl eligible the traditional way for the first time in three years. The Gamecocks won at least six games in a season for the first time since 2018.
The Tigers have lost three games in a row and for the second straight game dominated early and jumped out to a big lead just to see it evaporate. Auburn’s Tank Bigsby ran for a season best 164 yards on 22 carries.
