Many cautioned that Alabama was heading into a trap game against a South Carolina team coming off a bye. Those warnings proved correct, as the No. 1 Tide fell to the Gamecocks, 35-21. Stephen Garcia and Marcus Lattimore each registered three touchdowns, while the Gamecocks' defense held the ferocious rushing tandem of Trent Richardson (pictured) and Mark Ingram to 61 combined yards on the ground. It was South Carolina's first-ever win over a team carrying a No. 1 ranking.
