Game balls: USC-Kentucky
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- GamecockCentral.com awards game balls to the deserving players of No. 6 South Carolina's 38-17 win over Kentucky. What players or coaches had the biggest plays of the game?
NO. 6 SOUTH CAROLINA 38, KENTUCKY 17
After only rushing five times in the first half, Lattimore didn't demand or beg for the football. He knew what needed to be done, the coaches knew what needed to be done. Lattimore got the ball and did what he does, rushing for 108 yards in the second half with two touchdowns and also catching three passes for 16 yards. When in doubt, hand to No. 21.
In the first half, Shaw's legs were USC's offense. Once he got some offense around him, he really let loose. His touchdown strike to Damiere Byrd shook off the cobwebs and Shaw kept it going, despite taking some nasty hits. He was another efficient 15-for-18 for 148 yards with two scores, and rushed 19 times for 76 yards. He's the leader of this team.
He's getting better and gaining more confidence by the game. He got his step, didn't try to rush and gathered in the touchdown that turned the game around.
Even at safety, Williams led the team with eight tackles. He needed to, after USC had severe problems stopping the run and bringing players down.
He finally broke out, with six tackles, a sack, two tackles for loss and an interception. Lorenzo Ward said that Kentucky would be Holloman's chance to shine and Holloman proved it.
Again, only four tackles, but one was a sack and 2.5 were for loss. He disrupts games and changes them into USC's favor. If he keeps this up, he'll leave the school sacks records so far behind that they'll never be touched.
