Turnovers Cost Gamecocks In 44-11 Loss at Florida

October 20, 2012

Turnover-prone South Carolina was blasted by unbeaten Florida Saturday afternoon in Gainesville.

South Carolina was unable to overcome three costly first-half turnovers as it fell to BCS #2 Florida, 44-11, on Saturday afternoon at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.  The Gamecocks turned the ball over three times in the first half deep in their own territory, which led to 21 points for the Gators.  With the loss, South Carolina falls to 6-2 on the season and 4-2 in SEC play. It is the Gamecocks’ first lost against a SEC Eastern Division opponent since 2010 at Kentucky. The Gators move to 7-0 overall and 6-0 in the conference.  South Carolina outgained the Gators 191-183 in total offense, but four turnovers allowed Florida to finish the contest with an average starting field position of the 50-yard line.
