The nation's leading home winning streak was snapped by South Carolina on Saturday in a mistake-filled performance that eliminates the Tigers from College Football Playoff contention for a second year in a row.
The home winning streak was the longest since the Cornhuskers won 47 in a row from 1991 to 1997. The way in which the lead was blown is stunning.
When leading by nine or more points in the first half, the home team had been perfect.
South Carolina has beaten ranked opponents in back-to-back weeks for the first time in five years.
South Carolina earned the victory according to the coach.
It wasn't our day today. He said it was their day. That's sports. The good and bad have to be taken together. We won seven in a row despite being disappointing. You have to pay attention to that. In the last two years, we have lost two home games. We'll show up Monday and keep going.
The Tigers went into the game with a chance to make the playoffs, but they hardly looked like a playoff contender all season. Will Shipley ran for 132 yards and a touchdown and was the only one who could do anything on the offensive side of the ball.
Uiagalelei failed to get much going on offense and South Carolina was able to pin the game on the line.
Antonio Williams fumbled a punt with less than two minutes left in the game. South Carolina was able to hold on for the win. The second half of the game saw 86 total yards for the tigers.
South Carolina quarterback Spencer Rattler made multiple big plays in the passing game, despite the fact that the Tigers had three turnovers. Rattler threw for over 300 yards.
We have had a lot of good days. We aren't entitled for it to always go our way.
When Uiagale Klublei struggled, Swinney decided to stick with him and didn't look for a backup.
Brandon Streeter said there wasn't a lot of consideration to the quarterbacks in the game.
The field position and other errors worked against Uiagalelei. Three drops in the game was the second-most in a game this year.
There were a couple bad decisions. "That's football." It's difficult sledding when it's not clicking for you, but when you get in a rhythm it's really good.
When asked if there would be an open quarterback competition, he said he was not interested in it.
The team needs to be focused on the game against North Carolina. This is the first time since 2012 that both teams enter the championship game without a win.
The Tigers will have an opportunity to win a title because they did not win the conference title. He must answer questions about his quarterback situation moving forward even though he has defended Uiagalelei at every opportunity.
We are 10-2 We aren't 2-10). "It's a difficult day and a difficult day." It is our responsibility to help them push through, pick them up, and get some wind back in their sails. It's always about what's to come. A lot of people, their season is over, but for us, we've got a championship game this week and an opportunity to be on top of the conference.
