3. Ingram's DIY breakthrough. South Carolina held the Alabama offense out of the end zone for three full quarters in October, until the Tide abandoned decided to abandon the rest of the game plan altogether and just give the ball to Mark Ingram. The sophomore thumper carried the weight on all six plays of 'Bama's icing, 68-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter, including runs of 24 and 22 yards and a four-yard plunge into the end zone to put the Gamecocks away. Ingram finished with 246 yards on an absurd 10.3 yards per carry, and -- as the team's leading receiver, with 23 yards -- accounted for more than 75 percent of the Tide's entire offensive output for the game. By Sunday morning, he was the new frontrunner in the Heisman derby he would eventually win.
