South Carolina's late field goal tops Louisiana Tech, 17-16

After Week 2, this looked like it could potentially be a breakout season for Muschamp's SC team, going 2-0 with wins over N.C. State and Missouri. Facing a 13-0 deficit after three quarters, SC came to life with two touchdowns to take the lead 14-13 with 4:52 left.

It was White's first make among his first five collegiate tries.

Gamecocks quarterback Jake Bentley scrambled for 24 yards on third-and-10 on the ensuing possession and connected with wide receiver Bryan Edwards for 41 yards on the next play to set the stage for White, who missed his previous four kicks this season.

A win is a win, SC coach Will Muschamp said.

"We all take the blame together - starting with me", Muschamp said.

Injured Gamecocks wide receiver Deebo Samuel may be out with a leg injury, but he is with his team as they prepare to face Louisiana Tech and led the Gamecock Walk. Teddy Veal caught 10 passes for 110 yards.

The Gamecocks seemed done for ... their season even more wrecked than it was after last week's humiliating home loss to perennial SEC East bottom dweller Kentucky.

For Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz, it was another shot at a big win that slipped away. Holtz was an assistant for his father, Lou, at SC for six seasons and was initially promised the Gamecocks job when his dad retired.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Summerville, S.C. native finished the game with six receptions for 122 yards, providing just enough offense to lift a SC unit playing its first game of the year without leading wide receiver and special teams superstar Deebo Samuel. This was the first game for SC since Deebo Samuel broke his leg. Samuels had six touchdowns in three games, including two on kick returns.

South Carolina's offense was stagnant throughout.
