COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina leads 35-21 after three quarters with Tennessee driving.

The Vols closed to 28-21 in the third quarter on Tyler Bray's 61-yard TD pass to Vincent Dallas.

The Gamecocks, however, got it back on Connor Shaw's pass to Ace Sanders to go up 35-21.

South Carolina led 28-14 at the half.

The Gamecocks scored three times in the second period, including Shaw's 1-yard run with 14 seconds left in the half.

Shaw's 26-yard TD pass to Rory Anderson made it 14-7, Gamecocks.

Marcus Lattimore's 28-yard touchdown made it 21-7. Lattimore, however, was later taken off the field on a cart with what appeared to be a season-ending leg injury.

Bray and Zach Rogers connected on a 37-yard TD pass, their second of the game.

It was 7-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The Gamecocks struck first on a 33-yard TD pass from Shaw to Bruce Ellington on their first possession,

After an initial three-and-out, the Vols marched 75 yards in 10 plays to get even. Bray's 8-yard pass to Rogers got the score.

I know we're down 10 but we are going to pull this one off.

UT4prez writes:

Oh wow! Is it down 3 now?

If we just had a defense....

UT4prez writes:

Come on D! We need a stop now. I know you're tired. You get the stop and the offense WILL give you the lead.

Got to try to get better than the MV (moral victory)

This is that time. We will get this one done.

UT4prez writes:

Watch #33 on that kick return. He isn't attacking the returner. He waits until the guy is on him an then tries to tackle. I've seen this a lot from our players, not just 33.

How can you score 35 points and still be down?

Nice pick by Lathers.

UT4prez writes:

Come on Bray! Now is the time!

jobrando#216494 writes:

lathers = game ball

VolGrad writes:

The Z-force is with us.

UT4prez writes:

Plenty of time. Don't forget the run.

Spurrier needs to be fired

Hate to nitpick, VG, but his pick cost em 10 yds.

UT4prez writes:

Lane should have stayed in and gotten the yards. See? Now it's third and short. Those were 2-3 yards we needed.

UT4prez writes:

No more beat junk! Bray is hot. Leave him in. If you want to run then stinking run!

VolGrad writes:

Betrayed once again by the fumble.

Always find a way to lose...

I can't believe what I just saw.

Gotta love Tyler Bray and Coach Fooley!! Losers find a way to lose cause thats what losers do!! GET OUT LOSERS!! BOTH OF YOU !!

Bray gives another game away. How can that guy be so bad in the clutch? How many times has he gave away a game in the last drive that we could have won????
Yet Bray will still be dancing on the sideline as he has been seen doing a few times today.

crying for the first time in a while

We don't watch a new game every week...nothing but reruns.

Tyler continues his perfect choking record. It's very sad.

volfaninbuckeyeland writes:

Great to see Z Rogers having a career day. With the Dooley curse, should we have expected anything other than the fumble? Gotta admit, however, I didn't think that UT would be in it at this point.

I still give Tiny A+ and half the game ball with Lathers

If anyone blames that play on Bray, they no nothing about football!

Seriously, did Doo fumble it?? Did Worley fumble it??? How is it not Brays fault? Are you his mom?

Tiny played well all game. Missed one play and it results in a fumble. Tough one.

HE THROWS FOR 350 YDS AND 4 TDs AND ITS BRAYS FAULT? U KNOW NOTHING. HE GOT CAUGHT IN HIS THROWING MOTION.

Good QB's are aware of storming DE. Got to get the play off. It's his fault.

It's Chaney's fault. Run the damn ball with 3 timeouts.

pcorange writes:

Can't blame this one on Bray. 4 TDs and 300+ yards. 35 points on the board and we're behind, that ain't Tyler Bray's fault.

there is no doubt in my mind this program iss cursed for what it did to Fulmer. If you can't see it then you are BLIND!

WE LOST BECAUSE OUR DEFENSE LET THEM HAVE A FIELD DAY ON US!

What?

shipperman#280095 writes:

Either way, loser Dooley is still winless in the SEC, and winless against Top 25

killervol69 writes:

Again, we lose due to stupid mistakes.

VolGrad writes:

Good defense on that one.

Timeout?

and I'm tired of that line...I'm ready to start next week with new leadership. I wish Dooley the best but the last three years have been just pitiful

UT4prez writes:

Dooley should have made a big deal over that missed out of bounds deal.

Somewhere, probably near LSU, there is a little orange vodoo doll with pins all it in....we are just cursed.

Goodbye Dooley

Officials cost us that last time-out.
