South Carolina upsets Georgia 38-35

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    
The Bulldogs (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) had a first-and-goal on the Gamecocks' 4 down three points with 5:24 remaining. But Hutson Mason was called for intentional grounding to set Georgia back and the usually reliable Marshall Morgan missed a 28-yard field goal.
    
Todd Gurley ran for 131 yards and a touchdown, yet the Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) kept the Bulldogs' star from making a bigger impact.
    
The victory was South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier's 201st as a SEC coach, tying him for second alltime with Georgia great Vince Dooley. It put the Gamecocks back in the SEC East race.
