Story By Associated Press

ORLANDO - Connor Shaw was responsible for five touchdowns, including three passing, and No. 8 South Carolina outlasted No. 19 Wisconsin 34-24 in the Capital One Bowl on Wednesday.

The Gamecocks' senior was named the game's MVP after picking apart the Badgers defense, completing 22 of 25 passes for 312 yards. Shaw also had rushing and receiving scores.

South Carolina (11-2) won its third straight bowl game to cap its third straight 11-win season.


Bruce Ellington caught six passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

The Badgers (9-4) couldn't capitalize on 100-yard rushing games from both Melvin Gordon and James White, struggling after quarterback Joel Stave left in the third quarter with a shoulder injury.

Backup Curt Phillips was intercepted twice.

Merrill native Sam Arneson caught a one-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to tie the game for Wisconsin.

Wisconsin has lost four straight bowl games.
