Spurrier, No. 8 South Carolina make more history

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Steve Spurrier and No. 8 South Carolina made more school history with the Gamecocks' third consecutive 11-2 season. And the coach doesn't believe the run of success is over.

The Gamecocks closed the season with their sixth straight victory -- their third New Year's Day bowl win in a row -- by defeating No. 19 Wisconsin 34-24 at the Capital One Bowl on Wednesday.

It was another year of achievement under Spurrier, who has turned the Gamecocks into a Southeastern Conference Eastern Division power in nine seasons at South Carolina.

Spurrier believes the Gamecocks can take that next step in the SEC title game as East champions, even with team leaders and playermakers like defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and quarterback Connor Shaw leaving South Carolina.
