FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino isn't talking anymore about slow starts.
After four weeks of first-half frustrations, Petrino is hoping to put to rest any more slow starts by not talking on the subject.
The No. 8 Razorbacks (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) will have their first chance to test Petrino's new approach when hosting No. 10 South Carolina (7-1, 5-1) on Saturday.
Arkansas has been outscored 87-59 in the first half during the last four games. It has won each time, outscoring opponents 82-17 combined in the second half.
Both teams have BCS bowl game hopes, and a win for the Gamecocks would move them closer to a second straight SEC championship game.
Arkansas needs help from LSU against Alabama this week and a win against the Tigers later this month.
