Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during the Volunteers’ loss to South Carolina and will miss the rest of the season, the school announced Sunday.

The senior quarterback, who had been a Heisman Trophy contender for much of his record-setting season, suffered the injury on a noncontact play when he planted his leg and his knee buckled.
