Columbia, S.C. • Kenny Miles rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown, and No. 2 South Carolina pulled out a closer-than-expected 24-7 win over FCS opponent Wofford 24-7 on Saturday.
The victory gave Steve Spurrier his 64th win in eight seasons with the Gamecocks (9-2), tying him with Rex Enright for most ever in program history. But it wasn't until a 17-point fourth quarter that Spurrier and South Carolina could rest easy in this one.
Adam Yates' 23-yard field goal broke a 7-7 tie with 11 minutes, 57 seconds to go. After the Terriers (8-3) failed on a fourth-and-1 at their 34, Connor Shaw threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Ace Sanders to widen the lead.
Moments later, Wofford's Eric Breitenstein fumbled, and Akeem Auguste returned it 31 yards for a touchdown, to make it 24-7.
It was the Gamecocks' 11th straight win at Williams-Brice Stadium and completed their first perfect run at home (7-0) since 1987.
