No. 17 Gamecocks Overcome Tennessee 38-35

Posted: Updated: Oct 27, 2012 6:53 PM CDT

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Connor Shaw threw three touchdowns and ran for another, and No. 17 South Carolina overcame the loss of tailback Marcus Lattimore for a 38-35 victory over Tennessee on Saturday.

Tyler Bray drove the Vols to South Carolina's 19 with 1:08 left when he was hit from behind by defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. The ball popped loose and linebacker Shaq Wilson recovered.

Tennessee (3-5, 0-5 Southeastern Conference) forced a punt and got the ball back with 36 seconds to go, but Victor Hampton intercepted a long pass from Bray to close it out for South Carolina.

More pressing, though, is the apparent loss of Lattimore to a serious injury. The junior was taken to a hospital after hurting his right leg in the second quarter.
