That Night We Ended the Losing Streak

It was like some kind of religious moment on Sept. 2, 2000.

Fans had to be held back until the clock hit zero. After that, they thanked the Football Gods and Lou Holtz for helping the Gamecocks end their 21-game losing streak.

Both field goal posts fell that night. One ended up in Five Points a few hours later.

"I've never seen a celebration go on so long after a win at Williams-Brice. Lou Holtz became a hero that night."
