College football: South Carolina's Bryan Edwards makes brilliant touchdown grab against USF

  South Carolina WR Bryan Edwards goes up for a pass.

Early in the fourth quarter of the Birmingham Bowl, South Carolina trailed South Florida 39-24.

It was 4th and 2 and the Gamecocks were eight yards from six points. That late in the game, Will Muschamp decided his team couldn't afford not to try.

The Bulls sent the house at Quarterback Jake Bentley, who had to scramble to stay up and bumped into his own lineman before getting the pass off.

The pass was then deflected by a Bulls defender yet somehow dropped right into the hands of Carolina's Bryan Edwards in the endzone.

The score brought the Gamecocks within eight, and after another touchdown and a successful two-point conversion, South Carolina forced overtime. The Bulls are looking for their 11th win of the season; South Carolina is looking for their seventh.
