Game of the Week

Watch this page during the offseason for periodic updates of classic DAWGS games from this week in history!


South Carolina 1966 Earliest surviving Munson broadcast. Larry had taken over for Ed Thilenius after the 1965 season, just in time for the DAWGS first SEC Championship under Vince Dooley. Kirby (no, not THAT Kirby) broke open a tight defensive game with a touchdown run in Columbia.

South Carolina 1980 Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers (35 carries, 168 yards) dueled Herschel Walker (43 carries, 219 yards, 1 TD) in the DAWGS’ only regular-season nationally-televised game during the National Championship season. Munson: “Look at that sweet clock…”

South Carolina 1982 How about a game in which a DAWG tight end scored 2 TD’s? Sound familiar? Clarence Kay did his best Brock Bowers imitation in Columbia, as John Lastinger got his feet under him and led the DAWGS offense. Munson, describing Herschel’s TD run: “…they really had him on the 5, he would not be denied.”
