COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - This week we've been taking you back through the WIS video vault looking at some of the greatest moments in Gamecock football history.  In our final installment, we take you back to 1978, at a time when victories over Georgia were few and far between.

It had been 19 seasons since the last time the Gamecocks had beaten the hated Dawgs, and the Gamecocks were ready for a win.  Vince Dooley brought one of his nationally ranked squads into Williams-Brice Stadium, but the Gamecocks took UGA and crew to the woodshed and set up what would be one of the most successful USC squads two seasons later.
