CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Chris Smelley threw a career-high three
touchdown passes in the first half and seventh-ranked South
Carolina held off North Carolina 21-15.
The redshirt freshman improved to 4-and-0 as a starter. South
Carolina built a 21-3 lead through three quarters and successfully
defended its first top 10 ranking since 2001.
But the 2-and-5 Tar Heels made things interesting late. T.J.
Yates threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Greg Little on the first
play of the fourth quarter, then ran 3 yards for another score to
make it a six-point game with 3:03 left.
