With Hopes for League Title Gone,
Crowe, Gamecocks Vow to Finish Season Strong
For the first time in their college careers, the Gamecocks are out of the hunt
for a conference championship with a month left in the season.
The Gamecocks have to go all the way to their days in the Southland Football League for the last time they were out of the race with
this many games to play.
They won the Ohio Valley Conference their first two years in the league. Last year, they played for a share of the title on the last
weekend of the season.
But Saturday's 38-31 loss to Tennessee State was their second conference setback of the season with three league games and four
overall to play. The loss, only their eighth at homecoming since 1946, left them two games back in the loss column to all
three remaining undefeated teams in the league, and they've already lost to two of them.
All that's left to play for is pride and a winning record, and that's what this last month will be all about.
