Adam Yates’ 23-yard field goal broke a 7-all tie with 11:57 to go. After the Terriers (8-3) failed on a 4th-and-1 at their 34, Connor Shaw threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Ace Sanders to widen the lead.
Moments later, Wofford’s Eric Breitenstein fumbled and Akeem Auguste returned it 31 yards for a touchdown, making it 24-7.
It was the Gamecocks 11th straight win at Williams-Brice Stadium and completed their first perfect run at home (7-0) since 1987.
No. 13 OKLAHOMA 50, WEST VIRGINIA 49
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Landry Jones threw six touchdown passes, including a 5-yarder to Kenny Stills with 24 seconds left, to lift Oklahoma to a wild win.
Jones finished with 554 passing yards to break his own school record. He needed a terrific game to offset the performances of West Virginia’s tandem of Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.
It marked the first time in 16 tries that Oklahoma (8-2, 6-1 Big 12) overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to win dating to 2007.
Oklahoma saw its conference title chances revived with No. 2 Kansas State’s 52-24 loss to Baylor. The Wildcats (10-1, 7-1) beat the Sooners earlier this season and can still clinch the league’s automatic Bowl Championship Series berth with a win on Dec. 1 against No. 18 Texas or with another Oklahoma loss.
Oklahoma has games left against Oklahoma State next Saturday and at TCU on Dec. 1. Any loss also would eliminate the Sooners from consideration for an at-large BCS bowl berth.
Austin rushed for a school-record 344 yards and set a Big 12 record with 572 all-purpose yards. Bailey had 13 catches for 205 yards and four touchdowns for West Virginia, (5-5, 2-5) which lost its fifth straight game.
No. 15 OREGON STATE 62, CALIFORNIA 14
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Sean Mannion passed for 325 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 15 Oregon State routed California in what could be Jeff Tedford’s final game as the Golden Bears’ coach.
