No. 6 S. Carolina stops N. Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina All-American Jadeveon Clowney looked less than dominant against North Carolina, not that it mattered to him or the sixth-ranked Gamecocks.

Clowney shook off a stomach virus earlier in the week – and some sluggish play during the game – to help South Carolina’s defense hold North Carolina to its lowest point total under coach Larry Fedora in a 27-10 victory to open the season Thursday night.

“Here I am back in front again, ready for all these questions about conditioning,” Clowney said. “Let’s go.”

Coach Steve Spurrier was disappointed at his team’s conditioning on defense, including Clowney.

“Did you watch what I was watching?” he said when asked about Clowney. “No, I don’t have to say it. You write what you see. We’ll try and work on our conditioning for the entire team.”
