Late turnover dooms UT, Vols lose at No. 17 South Carolina 38-35

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP/WVLT) -- Connor Shaw threw three touchdowns and ran for another, and No. 17 South Carolina overcame the loss of tailback Marcus Lattimore for a 38-35 victory over Tennessee on Saturday.

Tyler Bray drove the Vols to South Carolina's 19 with 1:08 left when he was hit from behind by defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. The ball popped loose and linebacker Shaq Wilson recovered.

Tennessee (3-5, 0-5 Southeastern Conference) forced a punt and got the ball back with 36 seconds to go, but Victor Hampton intercepted a long pass from Bray to close it out for South Carolina.

More pressing, though, is the apparent loss of Lattimore to a serious injury. The junior was taken to a hospital after hurting his right leg in the second quarter.

The Vols are 0-5 in the SEC for the third year in a row. It also marks the third straight year that Tennessee failed to win an SEC game in the month of October.

The Vols return home next Saturday and will host Troy at noon.
