South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw (14) looks to throw the ball against Mississippi State during the first half of an NCAA football game, Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013, in Columbia, S.C.

Shaw matched his personal best for TD throws after missing two days of practice with a virus. Davis, the SEC’s leading rusher, had his seventh game reaching the century mark and became the team’s first 1,000-yard rusher since Marcus Lattimore gained 1,197 yards his freshman season three years ago.

South Carolina (7-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) won its seventh in row over the Bulldogs (4-4, 1-3) and tied the record for consecutive victories at Wlliams-Brice Stadium, equaling the mark set from 1978-80. The Gamecocks will get the chance to break the record in two weeks when they close league play at home against Florida.
