SEC in the headlines: Nickson the right choice

The SEC is 2-0 thanks to wins Thursday night by South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Here’s some of what’s happening around the league:

Chris Nickson wasn’t named the starter until two days before the game, but the Vanderbilt senior quarterback didn’t seem to mind. Nickson racked up a career-high 166 rushing yards in leading the Commodores to a road rout of Miami (Ohio).
If you hadn’t already noticed, Vanderbilt’s D.J. Moore can play. He was everywhere for the Commodores in their season-opening win.
South Carolina explodes past North Carolina State in the fourth quarter to win going away. And guess what? The Gamecocks already have themselves a quarterback controversy.
