Recap


Quarterback Connor Shaw threw for three touchdowns and ran 60 yards for another as No. 14 South Carolina survived some anxious moments in the first half for a 41-20 victory over visiting Citadel on Saturday.
 
Shaw completed 16 of his 18 passes for 217 yards. His touchdown run, with 1:14 left in the first half, was the longest play from scrimmage for the Gamecocks (9-2) this season.
 
South Carolina led just 20-13 at halftime, but Shaw connected with Ace Sanders, Alshon Jeffery and Rory Anderson for second-half touchdowns. Shaw is 6-1 as a starter.
 
Freshman Brandon Wilds ran for 109 yards and two scores for South Carolina. Wilds has rushed for 100 yards in three of his four starts since Marcus Lattimore went down with a knee injury.
 
Citadel (4-7) was pushed backward 14 yards on its first possession but, after a punt, the Bulldogs intercepted Shaw and capitalized to tie the game 7-7. Darien Robinson ran seven yards, fumbled into the end zone and recovered for a touchdown with 4:47 remaining in the first quarter.
 
Wilds’ second touchdown, from 3 yards out early in the second, capped an 18-play, 72-yard drive that lasted 9:18 for a 14-7 lead.
 
Citadel, an FCS school which uses the triple-option offense, rushed for 241 yards and passed for eight.
