With their 30-22 win over Florida, the South Carolina Gamecocks are the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week, as selected by the pollsters of the FWAA's Grantland Rice Super 16 Poll for games of the weekend of Nov. 12. South Carolina is the first team to win the award twice in one season since Miami in 2002.
Mike Davis and Daccus Turman each ran for a pair of touchdowns as the Gamecocks (7-3) ended a 14-game losing streak to Florida that dated back to 1939. The win was also South Carolina's fifth straight in SEC play, a school record.
"I love the Gators, I always will," said coach Steve Spurrier after the game. "But I am with South Carolina now. I'm just proud of the guys, proud of the way they played," he added.
