COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Joshua Dobbs threw a 9-yard pass to Jason Croom with 11 seconds left to tie the game at 42 before Aaron Medley's 32-yard field goal in overtime lifted Tennessee to its first Southeastern Conference win 45-42 over South Carolina on Saturday night.
The Vols (4-5, 1-4 SEC) trailed 42-28 with 4:52 remaining after Brandon Wilds' 70-yard scoring run. But the Gamecocks struggling defense, which gave up double-digit, fourth-quarter leads in losses to Missouri and Kentucky, did it again.
Dobbs' 3-yard TD run drew the Vols within a score with 1:50 left before his tying touchdown pass a series later.
South Carolina's Dylan Thompson was sacked twice in overtime and the Gamecocks (4-5, 2-5) badly missed a desperation, 58-yard field goal.
Dobbs threw for two touchdowns and ran for three others.
