Take Five


This week's edition features outstanding moments from USC's fifth straight win over Clemson.

Continued thanks to Columbia, SC photographer Travis Bell for these stellar images. Bell has been on the sidelines at Williams-Brice since he was 19. You can view his Gamecock portfolio at http://www.travisbellphotography.com/portfolio/gamecocks/
