The win for the now 14th-ranked Razorbacks (7-2, 4-2) was a dominating 41-20 win over No. 18 and SEC Eastern Division leading South Carolina (6-3, 4-3).
The Player of the Week is sophomore tailback Knile Davis, who had 110 yards and 3 touchdowns against the league's top run defense and has now rushed for 459 yards and 8 touchdowns in his last four games.
"Ramon is going to be out," Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino said. "He dislocated an ankle. They went in yesterday and put a couple of pins in it. It will heal fully, but it will be awhile."
As for a possible Broadway return for the Razorbacks' bowl game, Petrino did not know about that as of Monday.
"We lose a lot as far as emotional leadership," Petrino said of Broadway. "He provides a lot of leadership for our team. He is a very emotional guy. He pumps everybody up. I do believe that our team makes sure that somebody take cares of that. Maybe it will be one, two, three guys will step up without him being around."
He was happy that Jones appears moving toward playing against non-conference foe UTEP (6-4) this weekend in a 6 p.m. game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
Jones stayed behind in Fayetteville this weekend to get treatment and has responded to it per Petrino.
"Byran's got a chance," Petrino said. "He did a lot of treatment over the weekend. He was in yesterday and did some running on the treadmill. Everything looked good going forward. We'll see how the week goes and his change of direction. If he is able to do that, then he might be ready to go."
Arkansas has positioned itself to get into a BCS bowl if it wins out against UTEP, Mississippi State and LSU.
"We'll prepare for this game and it's the biggest thing to us, but you also have to be realistic and know there is something out there," Petrino said. "…There are opportunities out there but it is up to us to go take advantage of it. That was what I was so happy about the other night was the way we went out and played, went out and dominated the game and gave us an opportunity to really have something at stake."
Petrino was thrilled with how his team performed in all areas while taking down South Carolina in Columbia on Saturday night.
"It was definitely our best game of the year as far as being consistent in all three phases and playing together," Petrino said. "I think our players were really prepared for it mentally and emotionally.
"I was a little bit worried in warm ups that we were maybe a little bit too hyped up for it, but they did a nice job calming down once we got into the locker room and focusing and going out and performing real well," Petrino added.
The Razorbacks put up 150 yards rushing on South Carolina, who had been the stingiest in the league at giving up yards via the ground this season.
"It really helped us a lot," Petrino said. "It is great to be able to rely on your running game, to have confidence in them, to be able to call three or four or five runs in a row. Our offensive front was fired up. The attitude they had on the sideline in between series – they were always walking about ‘let's run the ball, we can knock these guys off the ball.' Obviously Knile did a very good job."
The passing game also flourished with sophomore wideout Cobi Hamilton stepping up for the injured Greg Childs with 7 catches for 111 yards and a touchdown.
"Cobi did a great job on practice Tuesday, and Wednesday we may have thrown too much to him and he got fatigued and dropped a few balls," Petrino said. "His confidence came back, and he understood we tried to do too much. He came back Thursday and did real well. He did a good job making sure his body was fresh and played really well."
Junior cornerback Greg Gatson, who stepped in for Broadway and got the most snaps after he went down at the spot.
"He did a good job," Petrino said. "He played with confidence, was physical tackling, and filled in for Ramon very well."
The Razorbacks also clearly have a lot of faith in field goal kicker Zach Hocker, who was true on kicks of 41 and a career-long 51 in the game. Seeing as how he was number three on the depth chart going in, he's been a big surprised with his consistency.
"He is a very confident young man," Petrino said. "We really thought he'd compete to be our kickoff guy or punter. One day we threw him in there for extra points and his timing, accuracy and his confidence sold us on being our kicker. He goes out there with great confidence and has ice in his veins."
Petrino coached for UTEP head coach Mike Price when both were at Weber State. The current Arkansas head coach was a graduate assistant for him in 1984 and coached wide receivers for him in 1987-88.
"I really liked coaching for Coach Price," Petrino said. "He was great for me and my family. He taught me a lot about quarterback play. He was really the first guy – because when I grew up playing quarterback we ran the option and got beat up a bunch – that was a big part of throwing the football in the western part of the United States. He really knows quarterback play and knows how to train quarterbacks, technique and knows how to throw the football."
The two coaches talked about the match-up this past summer a non-conference one in the middle of league play.
"The way the schedule falls, maybe it's good for us to have this late non-conference game," Petrino said. "The league games are so intense, and we've got a grind ahead of us. It also challenges you to have maturity in your preparation, have leadership, prepare and stay focused. That is one thing that I've been happy about with this team. They know how to prepare, go to work on Tuesday, grind it and understand how hard it is going to be."
