Will Muschamp was especially fired up after South Carolina knocked off Missouri with a last-second field goal to win 37-35 on Saturday in a weather-delayed game at Williams-Brice Stadium.

The Gamecocks were faced with a host of issues during the game, starting with backup QB Michael Scarnecchia replacing an injured Jake Bentley. Scarnecchia had a banner game going 20-for-35 passing for 249 yards and three touchdowns.

“You can question a lot about our football team, but don’t ever question our heart,” Muschamp said on the SEC Network. “And don’t ever question our mental toughness. These guys fought their ass off and I appreciate all the fans that stayed.”

With multiple lightning strikes in the area, the game was delayed by more than hour with less than three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

Scarnecchia leading a one-minute drive to win the game is “what it’s all about,” Muschamp said, and the coaches put the players in that situation all the time.

“He responded the right way,” Muschamp said.
