It was a tough week on the gridiron as both Carolina and Clemson suffered losses on the road. While the losses still sting, there were some bright spots, including Gamecock defensive back Jaylan Foster, the nation’s leader in interceptions, who grabbed another one against the Aggies. Jaylan was recently named a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, due to his ability to pester opposing quarterbacks, and is this week’s Gamecock pest player of the week.

In addition, the Clemson Tigers defense did all they could to give their team a chance to win, including this forced fumble and recovery against Pitt QB, Kenny Pickett, earning the Tigers defense pest player of the game honors.
