South Carolina Beats Tennessee 27-6

By  | 

Saturday, November 1, 2008. (AP) -- Freshman Stephen Garcia threw two touchdown passes and South Carolina piled on the problems for Tennessee and embattled coach Phil Fulmer with a 27-6 victory on Saturday night.

The victory was just the fourth alltime for the Gamecocks (6-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) over the Vols (3-6), who at 1-5 in the league are guaranteed their second losing SEC record in the past four seasons.

A big reason was the heady play of Garcia, who passed for 139 yards and his two scoring throws before a third-quarter knee injury sent him to the sidelines.

Gamecock players ran to the student section when it was over, celebrating their first win over the Vols at home in 16 years.
