Hogs Fall to SC 48-22 on the Road

Arkansas wide receiver Jonathan Nance reaches the end zone after catching a pass during an SEC game against Texas A&M on Sept. 23 2017 in Arlington Texas

Allen threw an interception that was returned 34 yards for a touchdown by SC linebacker Skai Moore with 8:33 left in the third quarter, increasing the Gamecocks' lead to 27-10.

"That was my first touchdown ever".

The four turnovers led to 24 points for the Gamecocks, who improved to 4-2 overall and 2-2 in the SEC.

"I feel like that's what Coach B brought me here for", said Williams, "to make plays, and the more opportunities I get, the more I can make plays".

On Arkansas' next drive, after SC safety Steven Montac had a fumble return for an apparent score called back, Gamecocks linebacker T.J. Brunson grabbed another fumble and returned it 73 yards for a touchdown to make it 34-10. The Gamecocks hadn't won against West opponents since 2013 when they beat Arkansas 52-7 and Mississippi State 34-16.

Three touchdowns from the defense isn't likely to be a formula the Gamecocks can duplicate in the coming weeks, but Saturday it was exactly what they needed.

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

Some other takeaways from the game.

Immediately after forcing its first two turnovers-for-touchdowns, the Gamecock "D" forced a three-and-out that gave the football back to sophomore quarterback Jake Bentley and the SC offense.

SC won by a final score of 48-22.

Coach Bret Bielema said Guidry stayed at home because of a disciplinary issue, but nothing involving legal issues. A few garbage-time drives padded Razorback totals; the third quarter ended with the Gamecocks ahead 34-10 and Arkansas with only 153 yards of offense.

Offensive coordinator Kurt Roper has come under criticism for not being diverse or effective enough in his play-calling.

A loss would have left the Gamecocks "Free Fallin'" toward the second half of the season.

It wasn't a happy homecoming game for Arkansas Razorbacks senior running back David Williams.

The Razorbacks joined the club when sophomore walk-on Connor Limpert hit a 48-yard attempt to tie the game 3-3 in the first quarter.

The Gamecock team that left College Station in a shroud of doubt is back on track to win seven or eight regular-season games. - Arkansas' tight ends coach - on the Razorbacks' all-time touchdown passing list.

SC broke a seven-game losing streak against SEC West teams by beating Arkansas. The Taxslayer, Citrus and Orange bowls had reps to watch the game.
