What we learned in South Carolina’s big win over Florida

Offense: The offense didn’t do much in this game, only gaining 301 total yards and 95 on the ground. Those are some low numbers for one of the highest scoring offenses in the SEC and a team that averages 176 on the ground and 286 yards through the air. However, it came up with the big plays when needed and did enough to win the game, which is always a good outcome.

Defense: A sack and six tackles for loss isn’t bad and the defense kept Florida to a much lower score than it’s been allowing so that’s a good sign. It also only gave up 278 total yards and 60 passing yards — much better than the 442 and 219 they give up respectively — and that will always make a coach and fans happy.

Special Teams: This unit was solid, hitting all the extra points, but missing a 47-yard field goal that could have been the difference in regulation. Punting was alright, but left a little to be desired. Punter Tyler Hull only averaged 40.4 on his kicks, but did have a long kick of 54 yards. The coverage teams were good, allowing a return of 13 yards as the longest of the game.
