Nebraska moves down the field on its first possession thanks to a 36 yard run by Taylor Martinez to the Gamecock eight. But the defense fought back and forced a 36 yard field goal which was missed.
The only other fireworks in the quarter came with just over two minutes left when Alshon Jeffery and Alfonzo Dennard were ejected for personal fouls at the end of a play. The two were shoving each other in front of the Nebraska bench after the whistle. Jeffery appeared to get his hands up on Dennard’s helmet, and Dennard appeared to throw a punch at Jeffery.
End of quarter…USC 16-Nebraska 13
