South Carolina Rolls Over #1 Alabama

We were there!   South Carolina's Gamecocks beat the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide 35-21 in Williams-Brice Stadium yesterday afternoon.  

End of Game!  Gamecocks Beat #1 Alabama 35-21
 Barbara and I were there for the exciting game.  It was really a dominating performance by the Gamecock football team.   Alabama was the #1 ranked team in the country coming into the game; was the defending national champions; and had won 19 straight games.

The University of South Carolina campus was the setting yesterday for ESPN's College Game Day show and the 3:30 game was the CBS national game of the day.  The stadium was really rocking for this game!

This great win was the third time this year, a Gamecock men's sports team beat a #1 ranked team.   Early this year, the men's basketball team beat #1 ranked Kentucky.   Early this summer, the South Carolina baseball team beat #1 ranked Arizona State and went on to win the College World Series and become national college baseball champions.

As a result of the big win, South Carolina has moved from #19 to #10 in the Associated Press college football poll released today.   This win also moved Coach Steve Spurrier to #2 all-time in SEC wins... behind Alabama's legendary Paul "Bear" Bryant.
