KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Connor Shaw threw for one touchdown and ran for another as No. 14 South Carolina survived Tennessee with a 14-3 victory on Saturday night.
The Gamecocks (7-1, 5-1) remain in control of the Southeastern Conference's East Division.
It was their first game without star Marcus Lattimore, who suffered a season-ending knee injury Oct. 15 against Mississippi State.
Brandon Wilds had 137 yards on 28 carries and was the centerpiece of a methodical drive that ate up much of the third-quarter. He ran 11 times for 51 yards on the 20-play drive, and Shaw finished it off with a 5-yard touchdown run on a draw that gave the Gamecocks a 14-3 lead with 47 seconds in the third quarter.
Shaw was 10 for 18 for 87 yards and an interception.
Tennessee (3-5, 0-5) couldn't turn multiple South Carolina mistakes into points. Justin Worley finished 5 of 12 for 105 yards and two interceptions.
