WHAT TO WATCH FOR

USC suffered a bad loss to Mississippi State on Thursday and can't afford a slip-up against the last place Razorbacks. With four games to play, the Gamecocks probably need three wins to strengthen their postseason resume. Bad decisions and poor execution hurt against the Bulldogs, so USC needs more production from Bone, Sutton and Nainima.

BOTTOM LINE

The Razorbacks got their second league win Thursday by shooting over 50 percent. That will be hard to duplicate against the Gamecocks' defense. If USC can find more success on offense, they should move back above .500 in the SEC.
