Samuel kicked off the scoring with a 68-yard receiving touchdown on the opening play, but SC was stifled by Kentucky's defense thereafter and did not score again.

Gamecocks head coach Will Muschamp said after the game that Samuel broke his leg.

"The main thing is we were fired up and ready to play", he said. "I'm extremely disappointed in that". We tried to pick up the tempo a little bit offensively and start throwing the football, which we were able to move the ball effectively. "We just stay on our technique, letting the line get to the blocks and do what they got to do". He directed two long scoring drives - each with double-digit plays - as Kentucky went up 14-6 midway through the second quarter on Snell's second rushing touchdown. Bentley found him on a skinny crossing route on the first offensive play of the game and he raced 68 yards to put SC ahead 6-0 with 14:47 left in the first quarter. "That's what we did".

Harry Redknapp sacked by Birmingham
However, despite signing 14 players during the summer transfer window, Redknapp has been unable to build upon his strong start. Birmingham have lost seven of their 10 games across all competitions this season, including each of their last six.

"I felt like we had good preparation", Muschamp said. "You don't gain on that momentum on two short fields at home in that environment, that was disappointing". For me on third and fourth down, I had 1 yard to go.

Similar to Turner, Dowdle came up short on a crucial play for the Gamecocks in the fourth quarter. The second turnover of downs took place on UK's goal line early in the fourth quarter, when the Cats led 17-6. "It felt good. I felt like Steph (Curry of National Basketball Association champion Golden State) when he hit the three in the fourth to silence" the crowd, he said.
