After struggling to put away opponents for much of this year, South Carolina dominated Arkansas 52-7 last week.

Tennessee (3-3, 0-2 SEC) plays the 11th-ranked Gamecocks (5-1, 3-1) on Saturday at Neyland Stadium (TV: ESPN, noon).

It will be a rematch of last year's battle between Vols offensive tackle Antonio "Tiny" Richardson and Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney.

"Clowney only had one tackle. Yet for the first time all year, I saw the other 10 guys all flying to the football, all making plays," said Scott Hood, who covers South Carolina for GamecockCentral.com. "They really shut down the Arkansas offense for the last three-and-half quarters."
