Per ESPN: It took South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier less than two quarters to abandon his game plan and go back to what he knows best.

"We're going to chuck it down the field and see what happens," Spurrier said.

Thanks to Dylan Thompson and Pharoh Cooper, the change of heart worked.

Thompson threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns, Cooper caught nine passes for 170 yards and a touchdown, and South Carolina beat Miami 24-21 on Saturday in the Duck Commander Independence Bowl.

South Carolina (7-6) has won a school-record four straight bowl games. Miami (6-7) ended the season on a four-game losing streak and hasn't won in the postseason since 2006.
