BATON ROUGE, La., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Jeremy Hill's 50-yard touchdown run with 5 minutes left proved decisive Saturday in eighth-ranked Louisiana State's 23-21 victory over No. 3 South Carolina.

Hill's score put LSU ahead 23-14 -- enough of a cushion to withstand a late Gamecocks touchdown.

Hill finished with 124 rushing yards and two scores on 17 carries.

Zack Mettenberger completed 12-of-25 passes for 148 yards with an interception for the Tigers (6-1, 2-1 SEC).

The victory was an NCAA Division I-best 22nd straight at home for LSU.

Connor Shaw was intercepted twice en route to 177 yards and two touchdowns for the Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1), whose school-record 10-game winning streak was snapped.
