COLUMBIA – A wild night. A historic win. The miracle in Missouri.

You're probably still talking about it. How could you not? South Carolina trailed 17-0 entering the fourth quarter Saturday night. Behind senior quarterback Connor Shaw – or was he a relief pitcher? – the Gamecocks rallied for a 27-24 win in double overtime.

In the amazement of what took place, it's easy to lose what it all meant. Last week, linebacker Kaiwan Lewis called it “the biggest game” of the season for a reason. It was a victory USC absolutely needed to have any chance in the SEC East title race. Now, the Gamecocks are sitting one game behind Missouri in the division, owning the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Join Gamecocks beat writer Ryan Wood for a 3:30 p.m. live chat Monday as he breaks down what happened Saturday night, and what it means for the team going forward.
