ORLANDO, Fla. — Connor Shaw threw two touchdown passes and No. 11 South Carolina had six sacks as the Gamecocks shut out the Nebraska in the final three quarters of 30-13 win in the Capital One Bowl on Monday.
The victory gave South Carolina 11 wins for the first time in school history and snapped a string of three straight bowl losses.
Nebraska lost its second consecutive bowl game and drops to 12-6 all-time in bowl matchups against SEC foes.
Both teams lost standout players in the third quarter when Gamecocks' leading receiver Alshon Jeffrey and Cornhuskers' cornerback Alfonso Dennard were ejected for a post-play skirmish in which both players threw punches.
Jeffrey had four catches for 148 yards and a touchdown before the incident.
