South Carolina 21
Penn 35

MADISON, WI - In their first game since the devastating loss in the National Championship, the Penn Quakers came out looking to take an early lead. Coming into this season, Coach AverageTSBPlayer had expectations that, "...the offense will probably struggle this season. Our defense should be solid, but our offense has taken a step backwards from last season." South Carolina, after a 5-5 season last year, is expected to throw the ball a fair amount with starting quarterback Connor Shaw.

In the first half, neither defense was able to step up and make the big play. On Penn's first drive, QB Donnie Azor was able to move the ball effectively. After a few terrible reads, Donnie put his squad in a 4th and 13 situation from the 15. Electing to go for it, he was able to hit a diving WR Leon Tufnel who beat the corner and safety to the corner of the endzone.

South Carolina's offense struggled to move the ball early on the drive, but Connor Shaw found a streaking WR D.L. Moore who somehow was able to burn star DB Des Ward deep to tie the game at seven.

Penn's next drive was similar to their first. Without much resistance from the South Carolina defense, Penn was able to punch it to make it 14-7.

With not much time remaining in the first half, South Carolina again struggled initially on the drive. However, with one second left in the half, Connor Shaw was able to hit RB Kenny Miles. He was able to make some guys miss to score on the last play of the half. 14-14.

The second half started poorly for South Carolina as they fumbles on their opening possession. Penn, as they were able to do on every drive of the game, was able to march down the field and score a touchdown. After a few punches back and forth, the game ended with a 35-21 final in Penn's favor.

The fumble certainly had an effect on South Carolina attack. They were unable to move the ball with much efficiency after the fumble. Penn was able to get a few completions in coverage, and that helped them keep the lead in the second half.
