Robinson sees SC offense challenging his defense

 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas defensive coordinator Willy Robinson says the Razorbacks need to continue to tackle well and run to the ball if they are to cope with South Carolina's potent offense.

After Wednesday's workouts, Robinson talked about the Gamecock offense, particularly running back Marcus Lattimore. Robinson said Lattimore, only a freshman, could end up being 1 of the best ball-carriers the Southeastern Conference has seen for a long time.

Kickoff for the game between the No. 17 Razorbacks (6-2, 3-2 SEC) and the Gamecocks (6-2, 4-2) is set for 6 p.m. at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, S.C. The game will be carried nationally on the ESPN cable network.
