COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina's Jaycee Horn was tired of hearing he didn't have the ball skills to be a truly exceptional cornerback.
COLUMBIA, S.C. — No. 15 Auburn's 30-22 loss at South Carolina on Saturday was its first to the Gamecocks in eight tries dating all the way to 1933. Here are three things we learned:
AUBURN — Just score the ball. That was Seth Williams’ answer when asked what Auburn football's offense can do to improve its efficiency in the red zone.
AUBURN — Anders Carlson could have hung his head. Flung himself angrily onto the bench. Slammed a helmet down onto the ground. His teammates could have shaken their heads. Avoided him. Even blamed him.
Now that many college football teams have played several games, it seems like a good time to check in on how players with ties to the Shoals are doing.
AUBURN — Arkansas and Auburn combined to produce a botched extra point, a kicker with two shots at potential game-winners and a hotly debated spiked ball.
AUBURN — Gus Malzahn tried to downplay it during the week, comparing it to when he faced Arkansas State in his first season as Auburn's head coach in 2013.
