Thursday's This and That

Making big plays
Auburn has run 10 plays this season that gained at least 35 yards, including six that went for touchdowns.
The Tigers’ 13 touchdown plays this season have averaged 26.8 yards.

Lattimore fallout
With freshman Marcus Lattimore fully entrenched as South Carolina’s starting tailback, sophomore Jarvis Giles has decided to transfer.
"We certainly wish Jarvis the best and he'll have a release to go where he wants to,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said following Wednesday’s practice. “Jarvis is a fine young man. We understand sometimes you get in situations where the opportunity to play doesn't look all that good.”

Honoring McKinley

Spurrier also confirmed that the team will wear a number 11 decal on their helmets this week in remembrance of former Gamecock wide receiver Kenny McKinley, who died on Monday.

Gamecocks batting .500
After beating Furman last week, South Carolina’s all-time football record is back above .500.
The Gamecocks are 537-536-44 in their 117th season of playing college football.
