[quote]Four factors to watch in South Carolina’s game against Arkansas on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium:

Contain the run

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema churns out 1,000-yard rushers like some people eat popcorn. Devwah Whaley, Chase Hayden and David Williams are going to keep coming at USC’s defensive front. The Gamecocks have to stop them.

Watch the hands

Arkansas loves to run but Austin Allen is one of the most physically impressive quarterbacks in the country. He roasted Texas A&M’s secondary two weeks ago, and if he can fool the Gamecocks’ defense on the handoff, he might find the matchup he wants deep in the secondary.

Will D-Will?

David Williams was never very productive when he played at USC, but he’s put up some decent numbers with Arkansas. The storyline is clear – Williams could come back and run all over the team that let him go. The Gamecocks’ top goal is to win, but it surely would help their confidence if they stop him early and don’t let Williams’ homecoming be a happy one.

Stay up

Quarterback Jake Bentley simply can’t keep taking the punishment he’s taking behind USC’s offensive line. With two starters out and a third doubtful to play, the Gamecocks can’t let an Arkansas team with only seven sacks all year have a record day.

Prediction

South Carolina 21, Arkansas 20
