Tennessee Stuns No. 11 South Carolina 23-21

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(KNOXVILLE, Tenn.) --  Michael Palardy drilled a 19-yard field goal as time expired to lead Tennessee to a stunning 23-21 victory over No. 11 South Carolina on Saturday.

South Carolina (5-2, 3-2 SEC) saw its four-game winning streak come to an end.  Quarterback Connor Shaw left the game with five minutes remaining after he was sacked by two Tennessee defenders.

Tennessee (4-3, 1-2) was able to get into field-goal range after freshman Marquez North made a spectacular 39-yard grab on the final drive.  The rest was history for Palardy and the Volunteers.

"It meant everything, to be honest with you," Palardy said. "It's been a long time coming."

Mike Davis led the Gamecocks with 137 rushing yards and a touchdown.  He helped his team rally from a 17-7 deficit before losing on the final play of the game.  Jadeveon Clowney tied a career-high with seven tackles on defense.

"They came out, played fast, did the things we expect them to do," Davis said. "We just didn't execute."

The win snapped a 19-game losing streak against ranked opponents for the Volunteers.
