A chance at redemption is staring USC right in the face Saturday. The Gamecocks bitterly disappointed their fans in their only SEC home game to date with the loss to Kentucky. This Saturday they get Arkansas at Williams-Brice Stadium a win would do wonders for the psyche of Gamecock Nation. A win also would make the Gamecocks 4-2, a complete reversal of year one under will Muschamp when the Gamecocks were 2-4 at the halfway point. That would be a sign of progress.
The Gamecocks know they have to figure out how to run the ball better and stop the run if they are to defeat the Hogs Saturday. Earlier this week tight end Hayden Hurst, linebacker TJ Brunson and running back Ty’Son Williams shared their thoughts about the loss to Texas A&M and their preparation for this week’s game.
