COLUMBIA, S.C. — Mike Davis ran 75 yards for a touchdown, Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson each threw long scoring passes and All-American Jadeveon Clowney helped No. 6 South Carolina’s defense hold North Carolina to its lowest point total under coach Larry Fedora in a 27-10 victory Thursday night.


The game was delayed nearly two hours in the fourth quarter by rain. The Gamecocks were already in control by that then.


Clowney did not have a sack and finished with three first-half tackles. The Tar Heels’ fast-paced offense wore him down and forced him to the sideline for several pit stops, yet he and defense mostly hemmed in the Tar Heels’ fast-paced attack. Shaw and Thompson ended things early as South Carolina led 17-0 in the opening quarter.


Shaw found Shaq Roland for a 65-yard touchdown on the game’s third play. Thompson threw a 29-yard TD to Kane Whitehurst later in the quarter.


Minnesota 51, UNLV 23


MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota’s Marcus Jones returned the second half kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown and the Gophers pulled away for a victory over UNLV, the 23rd loss in a row on the road for the Rebels.


Minnesota, which scored twice on special teams, turned a tight game into a romp without any scoring by the offense for the first 23-plus minutes after the intermission. Ra’Shede Hageman blocked a field goal that Martez Shabazz picked up and raced for a 78-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and Briean Boddy-Calhoun scored on an 89-yard interception return in the fourth.


UNLV’s Tim Cornett rushed 20 times for 82 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown run to cap a commanding opening drive for the Rebels. Shaquille Murray-Lawrence gained 108 yards on four carries for UNLV, which last won away from Las Vegas was Oct. 24, 2009, at New Mexico.
