Spur Of The Moment: Week 3 SEC Recap

Share it with Social Media

This was a huge win for South Carolina and Muschamp. Sure it was against a directional school from North Carolina, but the Pirates’ always play the role of giant killers and had knocked off NC State the prior week. It started off quickly for the Gamecocks, which jumped out to a quick 17-0 lead, before the offense packed it in and headed home. On paper, the Gamecocks had no business being in this game, let alone winning the game, but ECU failed to convert TD’s in the red zone and turnovers plagued the Pirates all day. The Gamecocks will head to Lexington next week for their 3rd SEC road trip in 4 games, something unheard of in the SEC, but will need more than 20 points if they hope to pull off the road win in Lexington.

Georgia Tech 38, Vanderbilt 7

Total domination by the Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech. Webb was effective at times but had too little help, while the Commodore defense struggled to contain the option.

The Wildcats’ got their first win of the 16′ season, but it was a shootout against a New Mexico State team that lacked D1 FBS talent. Drew Barker left the game with a leg injury and his status moving forward is unknown at this time.
