COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Alshon Jeffery's 70-yard touchdown catch broke a fourth-quarter tie and kept No. 17 South Carolina in control of the SEC East with a 38-24 victory over Tennessee on Saturday.

The Vols (2-6, 0-5 Southeastern Conference) had rallied back from a 14-point deficit on a pair of touchdown passes from backup quarterback Tyler Bray to tie the game 24-24.

That's when Stephen Garcia found Jeffery in the middle of the field and the SEC's leading receiver outraced three defenders to the end zone with 12:17 to go.

Garcia added two rushing touchdowns, the second from 1-yard out with 3:28 left that sealed the win for South Carolina (6-2, 4-2).

The Gamecocks are the East's only two-loss team. They can clinch their first berth in the SEC title game with wins over Arkansas and Florida in the next two weeks.
