Video: South Carolina’s Connor Mitch throws first career TD

Connor Mitch won the South Carolina Gamecocks’ starting quarterback job this offseason and ge is making Steve Spurrier happy about his decision early on.

North Carolina jumped out to a 7-0 lead quickly on a 21-yard pass from Marquise Williams to Bug Williams, but Mitch and South Carolina answered quickly.

After a very impressive drive by the Gamecocks, Mitch dropped back and fired his first career touchdown pass to wide receiver Pharoh Cooper. If this is a sign of things to come, South Carolina fans should be very excited about their 2015 season.

Mitch started off the game 0-for-5, but has since gone 3-of-3 for 45 yards and the score.
