It didn’t take long for Arkansas to capitalize on the missed field goal. Ryan Mallett hit Jarius Wright for a 57-yard strike to the South Carolina 23. The Gamecocks almost stopped the drive on third-and-one, but an obvious pass interference in the end zone gave the Razorbacks a first down at the two, and Knile Davis ran the ball in to increase Arkansas’ lead to 10.
South Carolina’s next drive broke down on the Gamecocks 38. Steve Spurrier called for the fake punt, which went nowhere, giving Arkansas a short field. Davis capped off another touchdown drive with a 21-yard run a few plays later.
