Connor Shaw throws for TD in college debut

POSTED: September 3, 2010 1:05 a.m.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Former Flowery Branch quarterback Connor Shaw connected with D.L. Moore for a 15-yard touchdown pass for South Carolina's final score in the Gamecocks' 41-13 win over Southern Miss on Thursday night.

The true freshman completed four of his five passes for 32 yards and rushed for 44 yards on four carries.

Quarterback Stephen Garcia and freshman tailback Marcus Lattimore each ran for two touchdowns and coach Steve Spurrier won his 18th straight college opener.

Garcia got things started with a 22-yard touchdown run and Lattimore followed with first-half scores of 3 and 7 yards to send the Gamecocks to a surprisingly easy win against the Golden Eagles.

And Lattimore wasn't the only young star to excel for Spurrier.

Sophomore Alshon Jeffery had 106 receiving yards and freshman Ace Sanders had a 53-yard rush — the Gamecocks' longest in four years — to set up Lattimore's first score.
