IMAGES FROM GAMECOCKS’ SEASON-OPENING VICTORY …

One of the best parts of covering sports in the Palmetto State is being able to work with award-winning photojournalist Travis Bell.  For years, Bell’s images have chronicled what the late Jim McKay used to refer to as “the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.”

Needless to say there’s been plenty of both …

Bell was in Nashville, Tennessee last night for the University of South Carolina’s come-from-behind 13-10 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Here’s what his cameras captured …

Good stuff!

We especially like the amazing pic he snapped of redshirt sophomore Deebo Samuel‘s game-tying eight-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of last night’s game.

Anyway, we look forward to working with Bell again this season as he covers South Carolina and Clemson University sporting events.
