Bulldogs Defeat Gamecocks Ending 3 Year Drought

The #11 Georgia Bulldogs have broken a three year cycle of losing to the #6 South Carolina Gamecocks with a 41-30 victory, ending a three year drought. Georgia's quarterback Aaron Murray did a great job utilizing his mobility to scramble away from the grasps of South Carolina's defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. This was an important victory for the Bulldogs in order for them to keep their hopes alive for a chance to play in the SEC Championship game this fall.

I believe the talk of whether Georgia’s quarterback Aaron Murray not being able to win big games against rank teams (Top Ten Opponents) will now silence the critics. Aaron Murray in fact played in one of the best games in his college football career as he completed 17-of-23 passes for 309 yards, four touchdowns, and did not throw an interception.

Aaron Murray was sacked just once by All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who was held in check by tackle Kenarious Gates, and tight end Arthur Lynch. Coming off a 38-35 loss at Clemson, Georgia could not afford another defeat if it wanted to remain a serious contender for a BCS National Title.

Tailback Todd Gurley added 130 yards on 30, and scored two touchdowns. Wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley had 116 yards on three receptions, including the back-breaker on an 85-yard sprint down the left sideline to the end zone sealing the game, and win. The offensive line did a better job in protecting Aaron Murray, with only one sack by the hands of Jadeveon Clowney.

The special teams still have a lot to work on as a long snap hit went through the hands of Collin Barber, hitting him in the face mask, and then falling on the ground. That placed South Carolina to be in great field position where South Carolina’s quarterback Conner Shaw capitalized on it with another touchdown. Georgia Bulldogs kicker Elliott Fry got a high snap and missed the point-after.

Georgia’s Defense (secondary) still seems to be in need of work as the two teams exchanged scores. Georgia will have a bye this week and will host University Of North Texas September 21, 2013 at Sanford Stadium, between the hedges.

4th and goal, and you're a foot away from the TD and I see Shaw lining up in the shotgun. HOOP HOOP YEAH I LIKE IT!!! The "Old Ball Coach" blew that call, and I'm glad that he did. Spurrior was out-coached by Richt yesterday for sure, even if the the onside kicked would have failed. Mark Richt out-coached him.

In the hunt, of course the Dogs are in the hunt. You aint gotta be in the top two this year, just the top four.

Jimmy D,

In 2005, #13 Georgia beat #3 LSU for the SEC Title 34-14. DJ Shickley was the Quarterback for Georgia.

There is a great chance that the Dawgs could become #2 in the country. Don't believe me? Look at where Ohio State was at the beginning if the season, and look at where they are now. Georgia has the tougher strength of schedule. If (And I Say If) Georgia Runs The Table, in tbe regular season, I can clearly see them becoming the #2 team in the Country. I say this because the top five teams will lose at least one game. Again if Georgia runs the table in these regilar season games winnng the remaining games, their strength of schedule will catapult them up there to the # 2 position before they reach the SEC Championship game.

That is the reason why I picked Georgia to win the SEC East, The SEC Championship, and play for the National Title. Georgia has a tough schedule. At the beginning of the season, Georgia face 4 top ranked teams. At the time, it was Clemson, South Carolina, LSU, and Florida. Geirgia have the home field advantage playing LSU and South Carolina. Georgia will win against the other non ranked teams going with the idds. Georgia controls it's destiny. My prediction is that Georgia runs the table again znd will meet Alabama for the National Championship again.

"Georgia will win against the other non ranked teams going with the odds".

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Sep 09, 2013 at 12:29 PM

Sebe, I said all of that, especially in my previous post. I am saying this by looking at the schedule, before opening game against Clemson. They have one of the toughest schedule in the country if, not the toughest schedule in the country. With a great offense returning along with Senior Quarterback Aaron Murray, I saw that they could beat Clemson and all of the games on the schedule. Those top ranked teams South Carolina, LSU, will travel to Georgia to play. I see Georgia beating Florida in Jacksonville, and all of the other non ranked teams. Yes I saw Georgia as being undefeated in the regular season, and a very strong chance in playing for the National Title. With the lost to Clemson, I still believe Georgia controls it's destiny. I also believe that if they runs the tables, (In Which I Believe Will Occur)they will win the SEC East again for the third year in a row, and play Alabama for the SEC Title in Atlanta. I also believe that Georgia will beat Alabama this year if they meet for the SEC Title. So now,I will say Georgia will play for the National Title, provided that defense get better. Yes I know if's but that is what I foresee.

You and I always agree to disagree, then agree again. :-)

Remember in the South, Football is not everything, but the only thing when it comes to real sports. It separates the men from the boys. I will buy this book.
