iStockphoto(FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.) — Connor Shaw threw for three touchdowns and ran for another one, helping No. 14 South Carolina throttle Arkansas 52-7 Saturday.

Arkansas (3-4, 0-3 SEC) scored on its first drive of the game but couldn’t find the endzone again, as the Razorbacks lose on homecoming day.

It was South Carolina’s first win in Fayetteville since 2005.

“I do feel badly for Arkansas,” South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said. “It’s no fun getting your butt beat like this at home, homecoming and all that. They’re not as strong of a team as they were when they were kicking our tails the last three times I’ve been in here. But Bret (Bielema) and his guys need to recruit their way out of it.”

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney returned to the field after missing last weekend’s game against Kentucky. Clowney had one tackle in the victory.

Mike Davis was a beast on the ground rushing for 128 yards and a touchdown in the win.

South Carolina (5-1, 3-1 SEC) has now won four straight.
