Josh Heupel’s Tennessee Volunteers were embarrassed 63-38 by unranked South Carolina Saturday night. Just call it what it is — the Gamecocks aren’t a good football team, and Spencer Rattler looked like the best player in the nation against Tennessee’s defense.

Vols quarterback Hendon Hooker finished 25-of-42 for 247 yards and 3 touchdowns. However, the signal caller left the game with a non-contact knee injury in the fourth quarter. Heupel had no update on Hooker’s injury after the game but added that he’ll be re-evaluated upon the return to Knoxville.

South Carolina’s offense racked up a ridiculous 606 yards and 63 points against the No. 5 team in the nation, and the Vols had absolutely no answer. The Gamecocks did whatever they wanted Saturday night.

Following the loss to South Carolina, Heupel met with the media. Below is a summary of what he said.
