      === Shaw accounts for four scores as Gamecocks pound Razorbacks ===
 
 Fayetteville,  AR  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Connor  Shaw  threw three  touchdown
 passes  and  ran for  another  as  the  14th-ranked South  Carolina  Gamecocks
 dominated the Arkansas Razorbacks, 52-7, on Saturday.
 
 Shaw completed 19-of-28 passes for 219 yards for the Gamecocks (5-1, 3-1 SEC),
 who  have  won four in  a row since  a loss at Georgia  on Sept. 7. The senior
 quarterback also carried the ball 14 times for 37 yards.
 
 "Coming  into this  week, all you heard  was leading the league in sacks, have
 two  really good  pass rushers.  I thought  our offensive  line played  really
 well,"  Shaw said.  "I think  I took  two sacks.  Overall, I  think we  played
 really, really well up front and played smart today."
 
 Mike  Davis  carried the  ball 19  times for 128  yards and  a score for South
 Carolina,  which  won in  Arkansas for  the first time  since the 2005 season.
 Bruce Ellington hauled in six passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns.
 
 South  Carolina star  defensive end  Jadeveon Clowney  returned to  the lineup
 after missing last week's game with a much-debated injury.
 
 Brandon   Allen  connected  on  just  4-of-12  passes  for  30  yards  and  an
 interception  for the Razorbacks (3-4, 0-3), who have lost four in a row since
 starting the season 3-0.
 
 "Today is a day that you have to put in the memory bank, acknowledge and never
 let  it happen  again, as a head coach, assistant coach, coordinator, player,"
 Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said.
 
 Arkansas  actually  scored a touchdown  on the opening  drive of the game. The
 Razorbacks  used  three straight plays  of at least 16  yards to move the ball
 inside  the red  zone. Alex  Collins capped  the march  with a  6-yard rushing
 touchdown.
 
 South  Carolina moved  the ball down the  field on its first drive, but had to
 settle for a 33-yard Elliott Fry field goal.
 
 The  Gamecocks then came  up with a big play on defense. Victor Hampton picked
 off Allen deep in Arkansas territory, and the turnover led to Davis' 6-yard TD
 run.
 
 South  Carolina bridged the first and second quarters with an 11-play, 71-yard
 scoring  drive.  Shamier Jeffery caught an  11-yard pass and Shaw ripped off a
 14-yard run prior to Ellington's 9-yard touchdown catch.
 
 The  Gamecocks added  to  their  margin just  before  half.  Damiere Byrd  and
 Ellington  hauled in passes of 12 and 11 yards, respectively, to move the ball
 inside  the red  zone. On 4th-and-2 from the Arkansas 7-yard line, Shaw picked
 up  a first down  with his legs. Ellington's 4-yard TD catch made it 24-7 with
 13 seconds left in the half.
 
 South  Carolina continued to roll in the second half. Byrd caught a 45-yard TD
 pass from Shaw on the sixth play of the third quarter.
 
 Keon  Hatcher  fumbled on  the  ensuing  Arkansas possession.  South  Carolina
 followed with a 15-play, 79-yard scoring drive that Shaw capped with a 10-yard
 TD run.
 
 Dylan  Thompson's  15-yard TD pass  to Kane Whitehurst  made it 45-7 with 9:18
 left in the fourth period.
 
 Another Arkansas turnover led to Brendan Nosovitch's 7-yard TD run.
