Prediction contest: Arkansas versus South Carolina

Update: The final score was South Carolina 38, Arkansas 20. The winner of the contest was bms who guessed South Carolina 40, Arkansas 20.

What a difference a season makes. After starting the year with National Championship aspirations, the football Hogs now need to win two out of three games with some tough end-of-the season opponents to qualify for bowl eligibility.

But we all know that.

The tough road starts this weekend, with an clash at SEC Eastern Conference foe, the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Gamecocks are coming off a bye week, but are still reeling a bit from the loss of their star running back Marcus Lattimore to a devastating leg injury Oct. 27 against Tennessee.

The Hogs have performed well versus South Carolina, historically, however. The Hogs lead the series 13-7 all time, and have won the last three match-ups with the Gamecocks.
