No. 17 South Carolina looks for win vs. Vols

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier remembers all three South Carolina victories over Tennessee, even the one in 1992 when he wasn't the 17th-ranked Gamecocks' coach.

The coach wants to see victories more regularly against the Volunteers, starting this Saturday.

In 1992 Spurrier's Florida Gators had to have outside help to win the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division and the Gamecocks, in their first season as SEC members, obliged with a stunning 24-23 victory over the then-16th-ranked Vols.

Spurrier was the Gamecocks coach for their only two series wins since then. South Carolina won at Tennessee in 2005, Spurrier's debut season, for the first time ever. Then two years ago, the Gamecocks dominated the Vols 27-6.
