So basically, South Carolina played a nearly perfect first 20 minutes, put the game out of reach, then got sloppy. Vandy used turnovers and a lopsided late field-position advantage to make this a much closer game than it really should have been, but the stats aren't fooled. When the game was within reach, it was all S.C. (And I'm officially quite concerned about what was supposed to be a great Vandy pass defense.)

Oh yeah, and passes to Vandy players not named Jordan Matthews were 4-for-10 for 38 yards.
