Shaw gets start at QB for No. 8 South Carolina

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Quarterback Connor Shaw is back in the starting lineup for No. 8 South Carolina.

Shaw started against UAB on Saturday, two weeks after bruising his throwing shoulder against Vanderbilt.

The junior didn't play at all in last week's 48-10 win over East Carolina. Instead, sophomore Dylan Thompson got the nod, throwing for 330 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

It was the first missed start for Shaw since taking over last year when Stephen Garcia was kicked off the team.

Shaw completed seven of 11 passes in the opener against Vanderbilt for 67 yards.
