CONNNOR SHAW: The South Carolina quarterback was 14 of 22 for 272 yards against Arkansas. He injured his ankle against Tennessee and was “gimping around” on Monday prior to the Arkansas game, according to coach Steve Spurrier. His ankle didn’t seem to bother him much on a 10-yard TD run in the second quarter, although it was evident at times that he wasn’t 100 percent. He also threw for two touchdowns.
COBI HAMILTON: A week after setting the school record for number of receptions, the senior from Texarkana, Texas, broke Jarius Wright’s mark for yards in a season. A 30-yard reception in the second quarter put Wright at 1,146 yards this season, surpassing Wright’s 1,117. In the game, he had four receptions for 72 yards.
Hamilton set the school record for the number of career receptions in a season with 69 against Tulsa a week earlier. He is the only Arkansas receiver who has caught 10 passes or more in four games, all of those this season. He had 12 against Ole Miss, 11 against Tulsa, and 10 each against Texas A&M and Rutgers. He also leads the league in 100-yard reception games with four this season. Hamilton holds the Southeastern Conference and school record for receiving yards in a game — 303 against A&M. Combined with his 162 yards against the Aggies, he holds the school record for receiving yards in consecutive games with 465.
D.J. SWEARINGER: The South Carolina free safety led all tacklers with 13, including 10 solo tackles. The biggest play of the game was a 69-yard interception return for a touchdown. Swearinger also had three penalties on three consecutive plays — one for a horse collar tackle, one for unsportsmanlike conduct, and a third for throwing the ball in the stands following his touchdown.
JADEVON CLOWNEY: The sophomore defensive end created a problem for the Arkansas offensive line all day, but he did not have his best game statistically with only two tackles, both for losses. He already had 16 1/2 career sacks going into the Arkansas game, with 27 tackles for loss in 22 games. He was named to the Sporting News and Phil Steele first-team Midseason All-America team. He is a finalist for the Rotary Lombardi Award, given to the nation’s top college lineman or linebacker.
TYLER WILSON: The senior now owns 27 records at Arkansas. He passed Clint Stoerner for the most career completions against South Carolina. Stoerner had 528 completions in his career from 1996-99. Wilson completed his 529th pass in the third quarter. He went into the South Carolina with 513. Wison entered the game averaging a 62.1 completion percentage in his career. Against the Gamecocks, he was 26 of 41 for 277 yards and two touchdowns. Wilson’s average of 7.48 yards of total offense per play after nine games was second among active SEC players and third in the NCAA among active players. Four times this season, the Greenwood product has thrown for 360 yards or more — tops in the SEC and No. 2 in thenation. Wilson was leading the SEC with 315.8 yards per game passing.
