Georgia's dynamic running back duo will try to outlast Bulldog-killer Marcus Lattimore.
The second SEC showdown will have major ramifications for the Eastern Division, with the winner gaining a leg up on a trip to the SEC title game while the loser essentially falls into a two-game hole.
The Gamecocks have taken the last two meetings thanks to monster efforts out of star running back Marcus Lattimore, who has torched the Bulldogs by accounting for a combined 382 yards of total offense and three touchdowns in those two victories.
Georgia will counter with the SEC’s top offense led by quarterback Aaron Murray and the two-headed monster at tailback featuring true freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall (h/t, cfbstats.com).
With all of that offensive firepower on the field, the best players in this game could be a pair of defenders with freakish ability in Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The Gamecocks get the slight nod considering their defense is playing at a higher level and the fact that they are at home.
Prediction: South Carolina 31, Georgia 28
