Vols top No. 11 South Carolina 23-21 on final play

KNOXVILLE, TN (AP) -

Michael Palardy made a 19-yard field goal as time expired Saturday to give Tennessee a 23-21 victory over No. 11 South Carolina that ended the Volunteers' 19-game losing streak against ranked opponents.

South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw left the game after being sacked by Marlon Walls and Daniel McCullers with less than five minutes remaining. Team officials appeared to be looking at his left knee while he was on the sideline.

Tennessee got into field-goal range on a spectacular 39-yard catch by freshman Marquez North. Four consecutive runs by Marlin Lane got the Vols to the South Carolina 2 and set up the field goal.

Tennessee (4-3, 1-2 SEC) hadn't beaten a ranked foe since a 31-13 victory over No. 21 South Carolina on Oct. 31, 2009. The Vols also had lost 16 of their last 18 SEC games.

South Carolina (5-2, 3-2) had a four-game winning streak snapped.
