If you are going to beat the Dawgs you better get them early in the season. The Gamecocks are the best opponent the Dawgs will face in the first half of the season and with a raucous crowd at Williams Brice Stadium it will be a tremendous test. Emotions will be high and their will no doubt be a fair amount of trash talk between the lines. South Carolina is going to have some success, but the Dawgs are too explosive for the undersized and thin defensive depth chart of the Gamecocks. Swift, Hardman, Robertson, Godwin, Ridley and Fields make explosive plays while Fromm provides steady leadership and the Dawgs pull away.
UGA 37 – South Carolina 23.
A close game through three quarter will evolve into a solid victory for the Dawgs as Georgia’s superior depth takes over in the fourth period. The second-half return of speedy freshman running back James Cook will add to the stress on South Carolina’s defense on an always blistering September afternoon in Columbia. However, it will be a massive and deep offensive line that takes over the contest for the Red and Black.
