* The Gamecocks rehearsed everything from pre-game warm-ups, to proper bench decorum, to on-sides kicks, to having their offense backed up in the shadow of their own end zone. The squad also worked on their punting, punt returns, kickoffs and kickoff returns.
* The first team offense looked crisp on the opening series. Quarterback Dondrial Pinkins did a nice job of distributing the football: He hit
for a 15-yard gain, connected with
for a 20-yard pick up and found
