COLUMBIA, S.C. -- New coach Will Muschamp needed something positive early to reinforce the lessons he has been drilling into his young South Carolina team since December. He got it: a win.After the second-half comeback against Vanderbilt to start the season, Muschamp hopes the Gamecocks can build on that success heading to Mississippi State this week.Anytime you have positives results, it makes it easier to have some belief in what youre trying to do, Muschamp said Tuesday. Positive feedback, regardless of whether its football, the business world or whatever youre doing, youve got to have something positive happen for you.The challenge this time around for Muschamp and his staff is keeping his teams edge heading into a more daunting contest. Yes, South Carolina (1-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) finished a disappointing 3-9 a year ago. And yes, the Gamecocks entered this season without its biggest offensive and defensive playmakers from a year ago receiver Pharoh Cooper now in the NFL and linebacker Skai Moore injured.Still, the Gamecocks had enough to for their eighth win in a row over Vanderbilt.South Carolina rallied from 10-0 down behind quarterback Perry Orth and kicker Elliott Fry made a career-best 55-yard field goal in the closing seconds for a 13-10 win.Mississippi State, who stunningly lost at home to South Alabama 21-20 last week, will not be lacking for incentive to open SEC play in a much stronger fashion.Well face a different team, obviously, than well see on film, Muschamp said. I told our players that when we met on Monday.Theres a better chance the players paid more attention after the Vanderbilt win.Fry, a senior, said the work put in during the offseason was as intense as any in his football career. He added that new coaches demanded a lot.Getting the first SEC road win is huge for us, Fry said. Talk about the buy-in factor, it ups it even more for us.The first game may have clarified the lingering issue at quarterback, too.Orth, a senior, completed just one pass for 12 yards in the opening half as he split time with freshman Brandon McIlwain as the Gamecocks went scoreless. Orth played the entire second half, completing 11 of 14 for 140 yards in the final two quarters in South Carolinas rally.Our confidence is going up, Orth said. But Coach has been preaching that we want this one as bad as we wanted the first one and about as bad as (Mississippi State) wants this one. Were going to go out there and prepare like we did in the offseason and last week and hopefully come out with the W.Orth will start again at Mississippi State, although Muschamp said its likely McIlwain will play, too.McIlwain looked dynamic at times, yet had a crucial fumble in the second quarter after the Gamecocks drove inside Vandys 20-yard line.Both these guys will help us succeed, Muschamp said.Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen had no specific area to pinpoint for the South Alabama loss. There were issues everywhere that we need to get fixed, he said.Muschamps biggest issue is keeping the Gamecocks level headed, although he was giddy on the field at Vanderbilt last week when the game ended. He congratulated players, he said, for the effort they gave to hang tough when it wouldve been easy to fold.The Gamecocks got the weekend off and Muschamp reminded them to stay involved and hungry -- a message thats easier to swallow after an opening-week win.In our profession, the results of winning is what we look for. Youve got to be able to see the fruits of your labor, he said. The young guys, especially, they need that as much as anything.---The APs college football page: http://collegefootball.ap .

Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night. "We won that game because of Tony Parkers aggressiveness," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "His juice; his aggression all night long. LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings returned to their hard forechecking ways and got a needed win.Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking short-handed goal midway through the second period and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2.Derek Forbort and Tyler Toffoli each had a goal and an assist and Devin Setoguchi and also scored for Los Angeles. Peter Budaj made 26 saves.After going winless in their last four games on the road, the Kings returned to Staples Center and found the key piece of their game that had eluded them on the road.For us, its the read, shutting down and getting in on the forecheck, Setoguchi said. When we forecheck well, thats usually when we create our opportunities.Darnell Nurse and Oscar Klefbom scored for the Oilers, who have now lost five straight games to fall to 2-7-1 since starting 7-1-0. Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves.Oilers coach Todd McLellan said Carters short-handed goal hurt the most but Edmonton was ultimately doomed by another slow start.It seems to vary from night to night positionally, McLellan said. Whether its a D-man with a turnover, the forwards coughing something up and not getting in position at the right time. Its certainly something were aware of, were concerned with and trying to fix.Trailing 2-0 after the first period, the Oilers scored twice in the second to tie it before Carter scored at 9:06 of the middle period.Nurse made it 2-1 with a shot off the crossbar 3:44 into the second. A little under five minutes later, Klefbom tied it when he caught a pass in the slot and lifted an impressive backhand shot off the crossbar and behind Budaj.ddddddddddddBut just 34 seconds later, Carter won a faceoff and Toffoli led a 2-on-1 rush that resulted in Carters game-winner.We didnt get the save, but there were other mistakes on it, McLellan said. I thought it sucked the life out of us for a little bit.Setoguchi scored off a rebound with 6:45 left to play to make it 4-2, his third goal this season and third since the 2013-14.I didnt think we were that good in the first couple of periods, Setoguchi said. Then, in the third we had a couple good shifts back-to-back and we were able to score on one.Forbort scored his first goal of the season to put the Kings on the board 5:09 into the game. Toffoli then gave Los Angeles a 2-0 lead a few minutes later when he tapped in a centering pass from Carter.There was a bunch of traffic down there, (Kyle) Clifford made a good play and I was lucky it went in, Forbort said. Game notes Kings C Anze Kopitar remained out for the third straight game with an upper-body injury. . Kings D Matt Greene was a healthy scratch. .
