Georgia vs. South Carolina

UGA smiles sweetly
The 12th ranked Georgia Bulldogs will pay a visit to Columbia this Saturday to do battle with Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks. After a 48-12 romp over non-conference opponent Western Kentucky this will be their first game in defense of their SEC title against an up and coming team on the rise.

Although Spurrier is known as an offensive mastermind, it was a tough defense that pitched a shutout in South Carolina's 15-0 victory over Mississippi State in the opener last week at Starkville.

This should be an interesting game with lots of hard hitting defensive play that I predict will come down to the kicking of the Bulldog's outstanding punter Gordon Ely-Kelso, as good field position will be an enormously important factor in such a tight contest.

I'd like to see Georgia quarterback Joe Tereshinski, who was a woeful 7 for 17, which produced a mere 90 yards against Western Kentucky, perk up and finally lead what is a fully loaded offense featuring great backs, blockers and receivers. We'll just have to wait and see.

Predicted outcome: GA wins 20-17.

Go Dawgs!!!
