TAMPA, Fla. – In one of the most dramatic games in school history, South Carolina used a 32-yard touchdown pass from backup quarterback Dylan Thompson to Bruce Ellington with 11 seconds left to beat Michigan 33-28 in Tuesday’s Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium.

Thompson was in because Connor Shaw limped off earlier in the drive. South Carolina took over at its own 30 after Michigan scored a touchdown with 3:29 left to go up 28-27.

Shaw kept the drive alive by hitting Ace Sanders for a six-yard completion on fourth down and three, which moved the No. 11 Gamecocks to their own 43. In beating the No. 19 Wolverines (8-5), the Gamecocks match their program-best 11-2 record from last season.
