South Carolina’s 18-game home winning streak is in serious jeopardy.

The ninth-ranked Gamecocks were punched in the mouth by up-tempo Texas A&M and trail 31-14 at intermission, their largest halftime deficit since a loss at Florida on Oct. 20, 2012.

“They’re kicking our butts,” Steve Spurrier said to SEC Network. “We’re getting beat by the better team.”
