Head to Head

South Carolina cornerback Marty Markett vs. Arkansas wide receiver Jarius Wright

About Markett: The 5-foot-10 senior from York was given a scholarship in the preseason and has started five of the last six games.

How He’ll Win: Markett probably will cover Wright while the more physical Stephon Gilmore gets 6-3 Arkansas receiver Greg Childs. He has the speed to stay with Wright, but technique will make the difference.

Key Number: 0 ... Markett is the only one of South Carolina’s top four cornerbacks without an interception this season. He’ll have plenty of chances to change that Saturday.

About Wright: The 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior leads the SEC in receptions (6.3) and receiving yards (101.3) per game.

How He’ll Win: Wright benefits from being surrounded by so many other good wide receivers. He can get lost in the pack due to his size and athleticism.

Key Number: 7 ... Wright has seven receiving touchdowns, more than any player in the SEC other than LSU’s Rueben Randle.
