Knock off a ranked team with a young squad, and you’ll get some national attention.

South Carolina pulled it off Saturday against Tennessee and got a little shout out Monday from Kirk Herbstreit, ESPN’s top college football color commentator. He listed South Carolina as his top performer for the week in a tweet Monday night.

The Gamecocks got their first win against a ranked team since early in 2014 and also dealt a big blow to Tennessee’s division title hopes.
