COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina reported 22 infractions of NCAA rules in the past year, seven of those committed by the Gamecocks' football team.

All the violations were classified as secondary, the least serious category by the NCAA. The school's report from Aug. 1, 2013 through Thursday was released to The Associated Press through an open records request.

While the football team was the only South Carolina program with multiple violations, most were far from anything for coach Steve Spurrier to worry about.

One infraction from last winter involved impermissible iced decorations on a cookie cakes given to prospects. Another occurred when the team laid out trophies and jerseys on a table inside the locker room, which is against NCAA rules since trophies aren't generally in locker rooms.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
