Streaks on the line when South Carolina hosts Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - One streak has to end Sunday when Tennessee plays at South Carolina in a matchup of struggling Southeastern Conference teams.

Tennessee (11-10, 3-6 SEC) hasn't won a true road game all season, but South Carolina (12-10, 2-7) has lost 11 straight meetings in this series.

South Carolina hasn't beaten Tennessee since an 81-64 victory in Columbia on Feb. 17, 2007. This represents Tennessee's longest active winning streak and South Carolina's longest active losing streak against an SEC opponent.

If South Carolina falls to Tennessee for a 12th straight time Sunday, it would match the Gamecocks' longest losing streak against an SEC opponent since joining the league in 1991-92. Kentucky won 12 straight over South Carolina from 1998-2002.

Tennessee is 0-6 in true road games this year.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
