LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Ryan Brewer's six-yard run with just under eight minutes remaining capped a late rally Saturday night as South Carolina edged Kentucky, 16-12, for its fourth straight victory.
The Gamecocks (5-2, 3-1 SEC East) trailed at halftime, 10-0, but tied the contest when offensive lineman Watts Sanderson recovered a fumble by quarterback Corey Jenkins in the end zone with 13:07 to play.
Brewer put South Carolina ahead with his run with 7:54 to play before Daniel Weaver missed the ensuing extra-point attempt.
Kentucky (4-2, 0-2 East) managed a safety with 33 seconds remaining to complete the scoring. The Wildcats, who were coming off a bye week, had scored at least 22 points in every other game this season.
Jenkins was seven of 15 for 199 yards and one interception. Kentucky's Jared Lorenzen was 22 of 37 for 194 yards and one touchdown.
The Wildcats were paced by Artose Pinner, who gained 117 yards on 25 carries. Pinner has four 100-yard games this season and seven in his career.
