College Football Countdown: 85 Days Until the South Carolina Gamecocks Kickoff

| by

Today there are 85 days until kickoff.

85 is the total number of yards gained by East Carolina on the ground.  The Pirate offense came out hot in the opener and took a sizable lead. 

The Gamecock defense then locked them down the rest of the game and the offense woke up.  Those 85 yards were gained on 28 carries, right at 3 yards per carry. 

ECU was the first team Carolina held under 100 yards rushing, but hey did it to 4 more teams.  There are only 85 days until you get to see it happen to more teams.
