#7 Arkansas holds off #9 South Carolina for 44-28 win

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Tyler Wilson threw for 299 yards and

two touchdowns as No. 8 Arkansas held on for a 44-28 win over No.

10 South Carolina on Saturday.

Jarius Wright added four catches for 103 yards and a pair of

touchdowns, and Dennis Johnson had a 98-yard kickoff return for a

touchdown for the Razorbacks, who won their fifth straight.

Arkansas (8-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) outgained the

Gamecocks (7-2, 5-2) 435-207, but a pair of missed field goals and

key dropped passes kept the Razorbacks from securing the win until

late.

The Razorbacks led 24-14 at halftime, but South Carolina pulled

within 30-28 early in the fourth quarter on a touchdown run by

quarterback Connor Shaw.

Arkansas answered with a pair of late touchdown runs by Ronnie

Wingo and Broderick Green to pull away and keep their hopes alive

for a return trip to a BCS bowl game.
