Wahoo from Charlotte! Virginia whips SC in Belk Bowl

South Carolina vs. Virginia - 12/29/18 College Football Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The South Carolina Gamecocks & Virginia Cavaliers will square off in the Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium this Saturday afternoon in College Football action. The bowl win is the first for the program since 2005.

The Cavaliers enter this game 7-5 on the season after falling to Virginia Tech 34-31 in Week 13.

And that was fine with Mendenhall. "All I can say is I'm very thankful". Each player and head coach Bronco Mendenhall got to take a few laps around the track with a professional driver, and some of them were shocked with feeling of 200 miles per hour. "I am glad it did not come down to the end". I'm gratified because of the progress we've made. With AP Photos.South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley threw for almost 3,000 yards and had 27 touchdowns, including 510 yards and one score against No. 2 Clemson this season. Perkins hit Zaccheaus for a 10-yard touchdown reception. The Gamecocks are 7-5 after beating Akron 28-3 last week.

The expectations, though, have changed drastically.

"The biggest thing with me and Bryce is we get along so well off the field - and that just carries over", Zaccheaus said. We sold our allotment of tickets, and we didn't put on a good performance, and that's on me.

The Gamecocks were shut out for the first time since 2006, when they lost 18-0 to Georgia.

Trump threatens to 'entirely' close US-Mexico border unless wall demands met
Closing the border down until the American people get the security they voted for would be a logical next step. On Thursday, the Senate was in session for only four minutes after lawmakers didn't show up.

An interception by Tim Harris with 5:39 remaining in the game removed any lingering doubt for the heavily thinned crowd announced at 48,263. He's had six games this season with both a passing and rushing touchdown, and while he figures to account for more than two of Virginia's scores on Saturday, he'll need at least that if the Cavs have a chance at winning. Zaccheaus found himself alone on a slant, ending a 39-yard drive that took eight plays and almost 4 1/2 minutes. This should be another close affair, but given Virginia's daunting defense and South Carolina's sometimes-electric offense, a much lower-scoring one.

The Cavaliers controlled the ball for more than 20 minutes of the first half and built a 14-0 lead at halftime. His 27 touchdowns this season are second-most in a season by a Gamecocks quarterback, and two touchdowns against Virginia would give him a share of the all-time record.

UVA jumped out to an early 7-0 lead when Bryce Perkins connected with Olamide Zaccheaus on a six-yard toss.

Zaccheaus had 100 yards on 12 catches to go with the three touchdowns, finishing out his senior season with 93 catches, 1,058 yards and nine TD receptions.

In just his second season as South Carolina's full-time starter at quarterback, Bentley is inserting himself into the school's record books.

"We weren't here for vacation", Zaccheaus said after being named the game's MVP. "Our team worked tirelessly from our last overtime loss to this one".
