Study Hall: South Carolina 31, Clemson 17

Streeter Lecka

Advanced stats from South Carolina's 31-17 win over Clemson on Saturday.

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

If you had told me South Carolina would be +6 (and +21.6 points) in turnovers and recover all five of the game's fumbles, I'd have assumed the Gamecocks would have won by about 38 points. Instead, they needed almost every single one of those turnovers to survive. But they did indeed survive.
