Cavaliers pluck Gamecocks for Belk Bowl victory

Cavaliers pluck Gamecocks for Belk Bowl victory

"We sold our allotment of tickets and didn't put on a good show and that's on me, and I apologize to them". The Gamecock fans traveled well to the nearby Charlotte, North Carolina bowl game, but the product on the field left much to be desired. "Our team worked tirelessly from our last overtime loss to this game". With AP Photos.South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley threw for almost 3,000 yards and had 27 touchdowns, including 510 yards and one score against No. 2 Clemson this season.

The Gamecocks enter the Belk Bowl also sitting at 7-5 on the season after they took down Akron 28-3.

Virginia's win is the second shutout in Belk Bowl history.

The Virginia Cavaliers shut out the South Carolina Gamecocks in the Belk Bowl in Saturday afternoon. SC has been relying upon its offense to carry it in games while its defense remains porous.

South Carolina's defensive focus during its bowl preparation was to contain UVA's Perkins, a dual-threat, and make him beat them with his arm. "They got after us".

SC coach Will Muschamp said he felt Perkins should have been the game's MVP because of his ability to "keep plays alive with his feet on third downs" time and time again. Jordan Ellis led UVA on the ground with 106 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.

Virginia had a dominant first half, behind long, drawn-out possessions and great defense. "Even when I might not make a play or he might not make a play, it's like, "Who wants it on the next play?' We're the same that way". "They got after us and it's my responsibility".




"I wish I had another year, because next year is going to be better than this year", Zaccheaus said. In his four seasons at Virginia, the 5-foot-8 Zaccheaus has 239 catches for 2,668 yards and 19 touchdowns. Delaney's extra point put the Cavaliers up 21-0 with 7:14 to go in the third. Minshew, who had been held in check in the third quarter, escaped a third-down pass rush to flip a last-second shovel pass to Tay Martin that went for 20 yards.

Bentley was limited to 218 yards on 17-of-39 passing and was intercepted twice. Delaney's extra point was true to give the Cavaliers a 28-0 lead.

Defensively, South Carolina is allowing their opponents to average 27.2 ppg on 425.3 total yards per game (230.8 passing yds/g; 194.5 rushing yds/g).

"Disappointed with the performance", Will Muschamp said after the game, via The State.

"I believe Coach said we were just getting started", Hall said, "and that's how we feel".

It was Coach Bronco Mendenhall's first win in a bowl game, and the Cavaliers' first win in a bowl game since 2005. Perkins passed the ball to wide open junior wide receiver Hasise Dubois, and Dubois ran into space before fumbling the ball just into SC territory.
