The Gamecock football team took the field at Williams Brice Stadium Saturday for their second scrimmage of this preseason. 

Head Coach Steve Spurrier says back-up quarterbacks Andres Clifford and Zac Brandise played well for the offense with Clifford going ten for thirteen for 86 yards.

Brandise completed five of eight passes for 72 yards and Head coach Steve Spurrier says he was very impressed at their efforts on the field.

"They might be in the run for more than just a backup spot," he said.

On the defensive side the attention focused on cornerback Stephon Gilmore and defensive tackle Melvin Ingram.

The two run the "Gilmore Package" also called the Wildcat, or, here at USC, the "Cockblock" formation. 

In the play, Gilmore lines  up as a quarterback and Ingram plays the part of a running back.
