Florida Vs. South Carolina Final: Gators Fall, 17-12

The Florida Gators dropped their fifth game of the season to the South Carolina Gamecocks because they simply couldn't stop the South Carolina rushing attack. Running back Brandon Wilds ran wild, picking up 120 yards on 29 carriers. Quarterback Connor Shaw picked up another 88 rushing yards and two touchdowns, as Florida struggled to stop the read-option offense.

The Gators offense couldn't get much done when they had the football either. The Gators were held to just 261 total yards as quarterback John Brantley struggled to get 119 passing yards. The Gators didn't help themselves either, turning the ball over twice with fumbles, giving South Carolina great field position. Running back Chris Rainey did have 132 rushing yards, but 47 of that was on a single run. The Gators fall to 5-5 and with a game on the calendar against Florida State still, may struggle to finish about .500.
