College Football Countdown: 17 Days Until South Carolina Gamecocks Kickoff

| by

A mere 17 days until kickoff for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

17 is the record for most rushing touchdowns in a season. 

There have been plenty of great running backs (hint) who played at Carolina. 

Some of them played on teams that scored often.

Marcus Lattimore sholdn't surprise anyone. 

In his freshman year he got nearly every carry near the goal line, and he broke off his fair share of runs from distance as well. 

He set many, many freshman records and several all time records. 

If he stays healthy, he's almost assured of moving up the charts this year as well.
