Remember two seasons ago when Georgia opened up at 0-2 and Head Coach Mark Richt nearly lost his job? The Bulldogs did go on to rally that year, but in the end, that second loss of the season was against none other than these Gamecocks. Could the same fate be waiting UGA this time around? There’s a decent chance that could happen. South Carolina’s offense is going to need to be a bit more explosive than it was in Week 1 against the North Carolina Tar Heels, but what we will say is that this is a defense that is out of this world. Granted, the Clemson Tigers weren’t really able to slow down the Georgia offense all that much, but DE Jadeveon Clowney and his mates were able to do so last season in a 35-7 romp up in Columbia in favor of SC.
Though we’re not all that impressed with QB Connor Shaw, nor are we impressed with much of the South Carolina offense, this is a game that is all about the defense. If Georgia isn’t going to be able to get into the 30s in this game, it is going to be in a lot of trouble. Yes, this South Carolina offense isn’t nearly as good as Clemson’s was, but we know that there are problems on this side of the ball for UGA. The Gamecocks have been waiting all summer long for this one, and they clearly kept close to the vest in Week 1 against UNC. The stops are going to be pulled out in this one. Clowney will make himself a formidable Heisman Trophy candidate and blow up the Georgia offense for the second straight season, as the Bulldogs fall clear out of the National Championship race once and for all.
