Projected to win the East Division by many entering the season, the 2014 South Carolina Gamecocks football team endured a disappointing 2014 regular season, going 6-6 overall and 3-5 against SEC opponents leading to just a fifth place finish in the division. The Gamecocks opened the 2014 season against their new inter-division rival, Texas A&M who replaced Arkansas in the SEC's new scheduling formula. South Carolina ranked #9 in the nation entering the game but lost to the #21 Aggies in an upset that ended their NCAA leading 18-game home winning streak. The team won their next two SEC contests over Vanderbilt 48-34 and #6 Georgia 35-28 in what was considered an early season-saving upset. South Carolina then suffered close and defiant losses in their next four games against SEC Missouri, Kentucky, Auburn, and Tennessee. They led Missouri by 13 with less than eight minutes to go but allowed two late touchdowns to lose 21-20. They were neck-in-neck with Auburn, who ranked #3 at the time of the game, but were unable to pull off the upset in an eventual 42-35 loss. Finally, they blew fourth quarter two-touchdown leads to both Kentucky and Tennessee, falling 45-38 and 45-42 in overtime, respectively. The Gamecocks did win their final SEC game in come-from-behind fashion over Florida, but then lost their to instate rival Clemson for the first time since 2008 to close out the season. South Carolina was invited to play in the 2014 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana against Miami of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Gamecocks ended the season with a close 24-21 win over the Hurricanes to finish the 2014 season 7-6.
The 2015 season is being referred to as the "Redemption Season" by players and fans due to the teams poor 2014 showing. So for all of you Carolina Gamecock Fans......IT'S TIME TO BE REDEEMED!!!
