Connor Shaw threw for one touchdown and rushed for another as No. 10 South Carolina won its record fifth straight over No. 6 Clemson with 31-17 victory Saturday night.
The Gamecocks (10-2) won their 18th straight at home, extending a school record set earlier this year. For Shaw, it capped the senior’s home career at a perfect 17-0 as a starter in the sweetest way possible.
The Tigers (10-2) had never lost five consecutive games to their rival in a series that began in 1896 — which they still lead 65-42-4 all-time. The loss also left record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd 0-for-4 against the Gamecocks.
South Carolina put things away with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break away from 17-all tie. Mike Davis had a 2-yard scoring run with 11:47 left and Pharoh Cooper threw a 26-yard TD pass to Brandon Wilds.
Meanwhile, a bit of disappointing news for the Gamecocks in the SEC East race. Missouri scored a late touchdown to defeat Texas A&M, 28-21. With the win, Missouri clinches the division and will play Auburn in the SEC championship game next Saturday in Atlanta.
