College Football Week 6: #5 Georgia At #6 South Carolina
|Mark Richt has his team at 5-0 heading into this huge showdown in the SEC East. Georgia has lost two straight to South Carolina.||Coaching||Steve Spurrier was out of line when he called out a local writer for a couple of negative articles in an attempt to get him fired. Gamecock fans hope he is focused on Georgia.|
|The Bulldogs are in the top 11 in the country in both scoring and total offense thanks to a balanced attack: quarterback Aaron Murray is looking like a Heisman contender and a pair of freshmen have anchored the ground game.||Offense||Connor Shaw has completed 50 of his 64 passes, a 78 percent success rate. Combine that with Marcus Lattimore and his eight touchdown runs and you’ve got a dangerous offense.|
|If it weren’t for four turnovers (three interceptions), Georgia would have lost to Tennessee last week. But the Vols have a potent offense; Georgia’s defense, led by Jarvis Jones, can harass opposing quarterbacks.||Defense||As good as Georgia is rushing the quarterback, SC is better: the Gamecocks are second in the country with 22 sacks thanks to players like sophomore stud Jadeveon Clowney.|
|Georgia has some dangerous return men and a reliable kicker.||Special Teams||The Gamecocks have been above-average in the return game but their punting has been atrocious. It hasn’t hurt them yet.|
