COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Gamecocks are back on track after two crushing losses in the SEC. South Carolina secured a strong win over Charlotte late Saturday, 56-20.

The 49ers kept pace to start, getting out to a 7-3 lead in the first quarter and forcing the Gamecocks to record a fourth game without a first quarter touchdown.

South Carolina led Charlotte 20-14 at the half.

The Gamecocks turned on the jets in the second half, picking up two interceptions in the third quarter and another in the fourth.

South Carolina cruised to a 56-20 victory, marked by 169 yards on 15 carries for three touchdowns from MarShawn Lloyd. The running back executed a track & field style hurdle en route to his first touchdown of the game in the first quarter.

The Gamecocks close out their three-game homestand next weekend against South Carolina State. Kickoff is slated for 12 p.m. on SEC Network.
