Arkansas vs. No. 14 South Carolina: USC defense shuts down Razorbacks, 52-7

Beth Hall-USA TODAY Sports

South Carolina puts things out of hand in Fayetteville with a monstrous road win.

The Jadeveon Clowney Show took a back seat to the South Carolina Show as the Gamecocks crushed Arkansas, 52-7. Clowney was held without a tackle for the duration of the game, but his ability to draw double-teams and direct the Razorback offense away from him made USC's job that much easier.

And easy it was; after Arkansas' opening-drive TD, the South Carolina defense demolished Bret Bielema's attack. The Razorbacks' next six drives ended without a first down, and fumbles ended the only Arkansas drives that went anywhere thereafter.

Box Score Hero: Connor Shaw threw for 219 yards on 19-28 passing and had four total touchdowns as South Carolina rolled to 32 first downs on the day.

Rankings Ramifications: South Carolina will be the beneficiary of Oklahoma's drop down the polls, but it might be asking too much to see USC rise past Georgia, who started the week at No. 7. Look for the Gamecocks to rise a couple of spots.

But Did They Cover? Well, South Carolina was favored by five points, soooooo...
