S Carolina's defense scores 3 TDs in 48-22 win over Arkansas

SC linebacker Skai Moore had the first interception for a touchdown against the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville since Florida cornerback Duke Dawson last season. It was Limpert's first tackle this season and second of his career.

Fifth-year senior linebacker Skai Moore got things started in the third when he picked off a pass from scrambling Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen and raced 34 yards down the sideline for a #PickSix touchdown.

If you don't want to count an Auburn game that went to four overtimes in 2015 with him as a defensive coordinator, you have to go all the way back to 2012 when Muschamp's Florida team inexplicably hung 44 points on SC.

The Gamecocks broke a 10-point game open in the third quarter.

Let's face it. The last three weeks prior to Saturday's game against Arkansas haven't been the prettiest games for the Gamecocks.

"The kid has just been tremendous class", Bielema said.

Some other takeaways from the game.

SC quarterback Jake Bentley threw three touchdown passes while completing 16 of 31 pass attempts for 199 yards.

Before that drive, played mostly against SC reserves, Arkansas had only 161 yards in total offense.

Looking at this box score, it's kinda hard to figure out how this game got so out of hand, save for one number.

The project works by ground stations connecting to the local internet infrastructure and beaming signals to the balloons. The company had previously conducted connectivity tests in Australia, New Zealand and several South American countries.

"We wanted to get the first down before we went fast", head coach Will Muschamp explained.

"No, that was dumb (bleep)", Muschamp said.

Bentley proceed to drive the Gamecocks 60 yards in 11 plays - capping the drive with a three-yard touchdown pass to running back Ty'Son Williams.

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

In the second half the Hogs started to unravel.

It was Martin's first game since the season opener against Florida A&M.

Williams' final day at Williams-Brice Stadium didn't turn out as he would have hoped.

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. - Arkansas' tight ends coach - on the Razorbacks' all-time touchdown passing list. The graduate transfer had just seven carries for 33 yards and a touchdown.

Certainly no need to adjust the added swagger the SC defense gained Saturday. The Taxslayer, Citrus and Orange bowls had reps to watch the game.
