State's offense was brutal, with and without Russell Wilson, who won the preseason quarterback scramble but got knocked out of the game with 4:09 left in the second quarter.
Wilson, Daniel Evans and Harrison Beck combined to go 5 of 20 for 49 yards with two interceptions, both by Evans. Evans and Beck showed why they got beat out by Wilson, repeating the same mistakes — poor decision-making, forced throws, holding on to the ball too long — they made in State's 1-5 start in 2007 when they shared the job. The Wolfpack defense kept them in the game with three interceptions holding the Gamecocks to a 3-0 halftime lead. But the wheels came off in the second half.
