As expected South Carolina struggled with I-AA Wofford and didn't pull away until late. Though many expected the Terriers to give the Gamecocks a run for their money, few expected USC's offense to have as much trouble as it did.
In years past the difficulty South Carolina's offense has had against option teams is a lack of possessions with which to produce points. This year, USC had 8 meaningful possessions scoring two touchdowns and a field goal. The offense turned the ball over on two possessions as well.

Wofford coach Mike Ayers had the same winning expectations coming into No. 12 South Carolina as he does each week in the Southern Conference. His disappointment at losing is also just as huge.
