Arkansas' season has been easy enough to follow thus far: Three straight victories over soft, non-conference competition followed by three consecutive losses once the competition got tougher.
Included in the three-game skid are conference losses to Texas A&M and Florida the last two weeks.
South Carolina, meanwhile, may be the most frustrated 4-1 team in the country. The Gamecocks' only loss came at Georgia, but closer-than-expected victories over the likes of Vanderbilt, Central Florida and Kentucky have led to a sense of general unease.
A porous defense and mistake-riddled special teams play are South Carolina's chief concerns heading into a critical three-game SEC road stretch that begins against the Razorbacks.
Arkansas holds a 5-1 edge over the Gamecocks in games played in Fayetteville, Ark.
