COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw is on pace to lead the 14th-ranked Gamecocks to their best offensive season in program history. And he's not going to let injuries stop him.

Shaw has a 21-4 career mark as a starter. He's four wins shy of surpassing ex-Gamecocks QB Todd Ellis' school record of 24 victories. Shaw has completed nearly 69 percent of his passes this fall and hasn't thrown an interception.

He's helped the Gamecocks average a school-best 476 yards a game and on they're on track to surpass 6,000 yards of offense for the first time.

Shaw's season appeared in jeopardy two weeks ago. It was announced he would be out 2-3 weeks with an injured right shoulder. Instead, he started last week vs. Kentucky and will Saturday against Arkansas.
