LEXINGTON, Kentucky (Ticker) -- Derek Watson rushed for 149 yards, including the go-ahead 58-yard touchdown in the third quarter, as South Carolina held on for a 20-17 Southeastern Conference victory over Kentucky.

South Carolina (5-1, 3-1 SEC East) bounced back from its first loss of the season and remained tied with Florida for first place in the SEC East Division. The Gamecocks ended a 13-game road losing streak with their first win away from home since defeating Arkansas in 1997.

Kentucky had a 17-13 lead and was driving toward another score when cornerback Sheldon Brown intercepted Jared Lorenzen's pass and returned it 36 yards to the Gamecocks' 42-yard line.

On the next play from scrimmage, Watson, who had 23 carries, took a pitch and raced to the end zone to put South Carolina ahead to stay.

South Carolina's Phil Petty completed 17-of-31 passes for 228 yards and a touchdown. His 44-yard strike to Brian Scott late in the first quarter gave the Gamecocks a 10-7 lead.

Lorenzen, who ran two yards for a touchdown in the opening period, hit Neal Brown for a two-yard score in the second quarter. Kentucky's Seth Hanson and South Carolina's Reid Bethea traded short field goals as the Wildcats (2-4, 0-3 SEC East) took a 17-13 lead into halftime.

Lorenzen was 34-of-52 for 304 yards with two interceptions for Kentucky, whose three-game losing streak is the longest under coach Hal Mumme.
