Ranking Tennessee’s 2014 Performances

Curt Maggitt-12. Tennessee stuns South Carolina with historic comeback

You can point to any number of big moments in Tennessee’s 2014 season, but it’s tough to argue that there were a bigger five minutes than the conclusion of Tennessee’s road game at South Carolina. Trailing 42-28 and given a 0.9% chance of winning the game at that point by an ESPN simulator, Joshua Dobbs and the offense went to work. Dobbs engineered two drives in the final 4:52 of the game and hit Jason Croom with just seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 42. Aaron Medley hit a field goal in the first portion of overtime and then the defense, which had been poor for much of the evening, came up huge. Derek Barnett and Curt Maggitt both sacked SC quarterback Dylan Thompson to force a nearly-impossible field-goal attempt to tie it up. The attempt fell well short, sending the Vols rushing onto the field to celebrate their biggest road win in years. It wasn’t the cleanest game overall, but the way it finished will be remembered for years to come in Knoxville.
