CHARLOTTE — South Carolina took its toughest loss of the season on Saturday, falling 28-0 to Virginia in the Belk Bowl. It was an emotional game and an emotional end to a season that had its highs (a win in the rain against Missouri, a shootout win at Ole Miss) and lows.
After the loss to the Cavaliers at Bank of America Stadium, several Gamecocks took to social media to thank the team’s fans.
Many seniors also penned heartfelt message thanking fans for supporting them throughout their South Carolina careers.
Here are several of them:
