South Carolina opened its season last week with a 27-10 victory over the North Carolina Tarheels. USC used a strong running behind the legs of Mike Davis and Brandon Wilds and an impressive performance from the defense as a whole to help shutter a quick attack offense in UNC and come away with a 17-point victory.
