KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Michael Palardy's 19-yard field goal with time running out Saturday lifted Tennessee to a 23-21 upset victory over ninth-ranked South Carolina.

The game-winning kick was set up when Justin Worley marched the Volunteers (4-3, 1-2 SEC) on a late drive in the closing minutes of the contest.

Tennessee took over at its own 35-yard line with 2:48 remaining while trailing by one point at the start of the decisive drive.

The key play came on 3rd-and-10 when Worley found Marquez North along the left sideline for a spectacular 39-yard catch to the Gamecocks' 26-yard line.

Marlin Lane added a 14-yard run to the 2-yard line with 27 seconds left.

After running down the clock, Palardy secured the upset with the game-winning boot.

South Carolina fell to 5-2 and 3-2 in the SEC with the surprise loss.
