No. 9 South Carolina, No. 16 Clemson lose openers

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Maybe it's not too early for some Palmetto panic after No. 9 South Carolina and No. 16 Clemson both were blown out on opening weekend.

It's the first time in 15 years the Palmetto State's teams each started 0-1. More than the defeats might be how awful the Gamecocks and Tigers looked in the losses minus the stars they counted on the past few seasons.

No. 21 Texas A&M and first-time quarterback starter Kenny Hill put up 680 yards of offense, the most allowed in Gamecocks' history in a 52-28 victory last Thursday night.

Then Saturday, Clemson and its fast-paced, high-flying attack was held scoreless in the second half - the first time that's happened in coordinator Chad Morris' four seasons - in No. 12 Georgia's 45-21 win.
