#2 Georgia at #25 South Carolina
Saturday, 3:30 pm Eastern – CBSSBG Global Opening Line: Georgia – 7 , Total 44
Georgia is no longer the #1 ranked team in the nation, despite winning their first two games by a combined score of 101-38. USC jumped over Georgia in the polls but the Bulldogs could easily surpass them in upcoming weeks considering they play in the tougher SEC. Georgia opens up SEC play on Saturday at South Carolina. “This is a different brand of athletes from what we played in the first two games,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “I’m not trying to disrespect who we played, but if you look at the film there is a huge difference in the size, strength and speed of this defense compared to the first two games.” Quarterback Matthew Stafford did not play well last year in the loss to South Carolina and will look to redeem himself on Saturday. The Gamecocks have allowed an average of only 69.5 passing yards per game this season, best in the nation. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Georgia on the Road.
South Carolina laid an egg last week, losing to Vanderbilt as quarterback Chris Smelley threw two interceptions. “We were ready to play, we just got our tails kicked,” head coach Steve Spurrier said. “We don’t have excuses, they just beat us.”
