This is the only matchup of top 25 teams this week. Georgia-South Carolina has recently become a game that has yearly significance in the SEC race. Georgia opened as a small favorite on the road and has seen that number grow to as many as six points. But… one thing to remember is that Columbia has not been kind to Georgia over the past two decades.
The 247 Sports South Carolina site tweeted this yesterday:
Since 1996, #UGA has not scored more than 20 points in a game in Columbia against the #Gamecocks.
As depressing as that sounds for Georgia fans, it’s actually been since 1994 that Georgia hasn’t scored more than 20 points in Columbia. That was the last year the Dawgs topped 20 — they beat the Gamecocks, 24-21.
