Draft Scout Connor Shaw News
01/01/14 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Connor Shaw got the ultimate praise after leading South Carolina to a 31-17 win over Clemson. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, a former Heisman Trophy winner, called Shaw the best quarterback in school history. "He is the best quarterback ever," Spurrier said. "He's the best ever." Shaw has certainly put up numbers worthy of such praise. He has a school-record 26 victories and completed 158 of 259 passes for 2,135 yards with 21 touchdowns and one interception this season. Wisconsin's 3-4 defense, led by linebacker Chris Borland, is capable of slowing down Shaw. But Shaw's passing and running is going to stretch Wisconsin's defense. - The Sports Xchange
01/01/14 - South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw had a hand in all five touchdowns as the No. 8-ranked Gamecocks held off No. 19 Wisconsin 34-24 in the Capital One Bowl on Wednesday afternoon. Shaw passed for three scores, caught a pass for a touchdown, but it was his 1-yard plunge with just under six minutes to play that gave the Gamecocks enough of a margin to claim their 11th win of the season. Shaw's rushing touchdown put USC up 34-24, but Wisconsin's Darius Hillary recovered a Gamecock fumble at the South Carolina 48-yard line. The Badgers quickly got the ball to the 16, but on third-and-one, backup quarterback Curt Phillips was intercepted by Skai Moore in the endzone to end the threat.
Phillips was in the game because starter Joel Stave was knocked out late in the third quarter. Stave was 9-of-13 for 80 yards and two touchdowns when he went down with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. He never returned. Shaw completed 22 of 25 passes for 312 yards. He ran 15 times for 46 yards and had a 9-yard reception for a touchdown. Gamecocks wideout Bruce Ellington had six catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns. He was also responsible for throwing the 9-yard scoring pass to Shaw. - The Sports Xchange

12/01/13 - Connor Shaw threw for one touchdown and rushed for another as South Carolina won its record fifth straight over Clemson. The Gamecocks (10-2) won their 18th straight at home, extending a school record set earlier this year. For Shaw, it capped the senior's home career at a perfect 17-0 as a starter in the sweetest way possible.
The Tigers (10-2) had never lost five consecutive games to their rival in a series that began in 1896 - which they still lead 65-42-4 all-time. The loss also left record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd 0-for-4 against the Gamecocks. South Carolina put things away with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break away from 17-all tie. Mike Davis had a 2-yard scoring run with 11:47 left and Pharoh Cooper threw a 26-yard TD pass to Brandon Wilds. - AP Sports
11/24/13 - Eight players scored touchdowns as the No. 11 South Carolina Gamecocks routed Football Championship Subdivision member Coastal Carolina 70-10 on Saturday afternoon at Williams-Brice Stadium. South Carolina (9-2) scored on its first six possessions in its first meeting with the smaller in-state foe. The all Gamecocks jumped to a 42-7 lead in the first half on touchdowns by sophomore wide receiver Shaq Roland, freshman running back Jamari Smith, senior quarterback Connor Shaw, junior receiver Nick Jones, freshman receiver Pharoh Cooper and sophomore running back Brandon Wilds.
Junior quarterback Dylan Thompson, Cooper and sophomore running back Shon Carson added second-half touchdowns for the Gamecocks. It was an opportunity for South Carolina to get everyone playing time a week before playing rival Clemson. Starting quarterback Shaw played less than a quarter, and starting running back Mike Davis, All-SEC defensive candidate Kelcy Quarles and All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney never saw the field. Davis and Clowney are battling nagging injuries and should be available next week. - The Sports Xchange
