Gamecocks and Hogs trading big plays

November, 5, 2011
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- As soon as you look up in this game, someone new has scored.

After a pretty entertaining first quarter, the start of the second hasn't disappointed.

First, we had yet another non-offensive touchdown for the Gamecocks after Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson chucked up a prayer as he was going down for a sack. That prayer just happened to go directly into the hands of South Carolina defensive end Devin Taylor, who rumbled 48 yards for the score to make it 14-10 Gamecocks.

That gave South Carolina its SEC-leading fifth defensive touchdown and sixth non-offensive touchdown.

Interesting enough, only a couple of plays earlier, Ronnie Wingo Jr. dropped a sure 64-yard touchdown pass after being wide open.

However, on the first play of Arkansas' next drive, Wilson got his revenge when he found a wide open Jarius Wright for a 68-yard touchdown pass to make it 17-14 Hogs.

This game had the makings of being pretty exciting, but a shootout wasn't something that a lot of people predicted. We've got a pretty good one on our hands here in Fayetteville, but you have to wonder which team can keep the energy going at this point.
