REWIND: South Carolina 48, Arkansas 22

Arkansas South Carolina Football

SC safety Chris Lammons stripped the ball free from Cheyenne O'Grady on Arkansas' second offensive snap, and Brunson recovered at the Hogs' 15 to set up the game's first score. Temperatures are predicted to be in the mid to low 80s.

After losses to the Kentucky Wildcats and Texas A&M, the SC hopes in the SEC East are pretty much gone. The Gamecocks' most recent victory over an SEC West rival is a 34-16 decision over Mississippi State on November 2, 2013.

3 p.m. Central, Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, S.C.

Before the Gamecocks pulled their starters near the start of the fourth quarter, Arkansas was averaging 2.8 yards per carry and just 3.1 yards a play.

The outcome of the Arkansas-South Carolina matchup served as an almost-foolproof barometer for the Razorbacks' postseason participation for 20 consecutive years.

"I'm still friends with all the people here at South Carolina", Williams said. The Gamecocks get a now-feisty Vanderbilt team and Wofford at home, which at the moment looks like the clearest path to six wins.

Conversely, a loss to SC has typically pointed the Hogs in the other direction. Turnovers gave the Hokies starting field position at the Arkansas 5, 8, 30 and 44 - all of which resulted in touchdowns in their 24-point comeback.


South Carolina: It was the Gamecocks' biggest SEC win since the last time they played Arkansas, a 52-7 win in 2013 ...

Arkansas football was dealt a big blow in the SEC with the road loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks. Connor Limpert made his first college field goal, a 48-yarder in the first quarter. Wide receiver Bryan Edwards sits fourth in the conference in receiving yards but is still looking for his first touchdown of the season.

The Gamecocks do not have a long tradition of dominating football, but their pre-game rocks, their in-game atmosphere is electric and their fans devoted. Pass protection isn't the only area in which the SC offensive line has faltered; the team is averaging a terrible 3.0 yards per carry on 139 attempts - the third-worst rate in the SEC - and its 84.6 rushing yards per game ranks 122nd out of 129 FBS teams. After a review, however, it was determined he had stepped out of bounds at the 7-yard line. "I'm just going to keep playing and doing what I'm doing and, if the plays come to me, I'll make them". "We just had to come out there and play well, play hard, and that's what we did and I think this one will propel us for the rest of the season".

"They've got a pregame tradition with some music and some energy that will be something we have to talk about and bring to our players as well as the normal crowd noise". "For us to lose like this, it's really embarrassing".

"We just have to have a complete game each week", linebacker Skai Moore said.

Second-year South Carolina Coach Will Muschamp, in full game mode on Wednesday's SEC teleconference, didn't have much to say about the one-time permanent crossover rivalry.

Unfortunately for Arkansas fans, this is becoming a staple of Bielema-coached teams.
