No. 9 South Carolina finds a way around Vanderbilt, 17-13
- Updated: August 31, 2012
Marcus Lattimore opens and closes the scoring
Some questioned South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore‘s status for the season opener, and after fumbling on his first carry of the season Lattimore showed he was just fine. Lattimore scored two touchdowns and rushed for 110 yards to help No. 9 South Carolina avoid an upset bid to start the season, beating Vanderbilt 17-13.
Lattimore opened the scoring with a 29-yard run for a touchdown on South Carolina’s second offensive possession of the game. Lattimore fumbled on his first attempt, setting Vanderbilt up for some early momentum but the Gamecocks defense came alive with sophomore star Jadeveon Clowney disrupting James Rodgers and the Vanderbilt offense and forcing the Commodores to punt after losing nine yards on the possession. Two plays later South Carolina quarterback Connor Shawthrew an interception, once again giving Vanderbilt an early opportunity.
