LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky's Randall Cobb caught a 24-yard touchdown pass with 1:15 remaining then added the two-point conversion to cap a furious second-half rally and give Wildcats a 31-28 win over No. 10 South Carolina on Saturday night.

Mike Hartline threw for a career-high 349 yards and four touchdowns for Kentucky (4-3, 1-3 SEC), which overcame an 18-point halftime deficit to stun the Gamecocks (4-2, 2-2).

South Carolina, which knocked off defending national champion Alabama last weekend, drove to the Kentucky 20 but quarterback Stephen Garcia's heave into the end zone was intercepted by Kentucky's Anthony Mosley with 4 seconds remaining.

South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore had 212 yards of total offense and three touchdowns but spent most of the second half on the sideline with an ankle injury.
