Connor Shaw: Returning from an injury that looked significant a week ago, Shaw proved his shoulder was no bother when he tossed a beautiful 62-yard touchdown pass to Damiere Byrd on the fourth play of the game. Shaw continued to play superbly from there, passing the ball extremely well, finishing 17-20 for 178 yards and a touchdown and running the ball when needed (9-50), especially his 31-yard run from the 18 yard line out to midfield in the fourth quarter to give the Gamecocks some breathing room at 35-21.
Mike Davis: He wasn't what he was, but he was what he had to be. His numbers were below his averages (127 per game, 7.2 per carry), but his 106 yards rushing (5.0 avg.) were of the tough, physical variety and he was the team's second-leading receiver with 54 yards on three catches.
Elliott Fry: With his team stalling offensively after three straight touchdown drives to open the game, Fry came on to secure much-needed points with successive career-long kicks of 40 and 41 yards to push the Gamecock lead to 27-7 with 4:59 left in the third quarter.
Kelcy Quarles: Six total tackles, four solo, a sack and two tackles for loss are the kind of stats South Carolina fans have been waiting for some time to see. In key moments, Quarles was unstoppable against a Kentucky offensive line that couldn't do much to slow him down.
Jadeveon Clowney did not play or dress out for the game Saturday suffering from a rib contusion.
Wide receiver and kick returner Bruce Ellington suffered a right hand contusion.
