The Gamecocks of South Carolina made it impossible to talk about anyone else this week by defeating the previously top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. After Alabama jumped to an early 3-0 lead, South Carolina’s Stephen Garcia responded by leading his team down the field and finding Marcus Lattimore for a touchdown. With the Gamecocks up 7-3, they simply continued to play better football until the clock hit zeros. Garcia completed 17 out of 20 passes for 201 yards, including 3 touchdowns, and Lattimore finished with 93 rushing yards and a total of 3 touchdowns, all against what many would say is the best defense in college football. The upset victory propelled the Gamecocks from 19th to 10th, and sent the former number 1 down to the 8th spot.
