Final Score: Georgia 41, South Carolina 37
What an amazing game this one was. South Carolina really showed determination to win, and you have go to give it to the ol' ball coach. They made a good stab at it, which made for a very, very entertaining game.
The first quarter started out with a South Carolina TD, but then a (you guessed it) 100-yard kick return for a TD by Georgia's Brandon Boykin, who is pictured in the end zone after the run.
South Carolina would again answer with Brian Maddox, plus a FG with 5:07 left in the first. Georgia would wrap up the first quarter with a TD, making it 17-14 at the end of the first.
The second quarter lived up well to the hype of the first. But this time it was Georgia's turn to start out with a score, ripping off a 61-yard TD run by Branden Smith. Blair Walsh added a FG to make it 24-17, Georgia.
SC would answer with two more FGs to come within one point. But with just nine seconds in the half, Georgia would march down and score a TD to make it 31-23 going into the half.
The third was a little bit quieter, as another Georgia TD made it look like they would pull away. But SC got a FG and safety to knock the lead down to 10 points, 38-28.
In the fourth, SC would come out swinging as they got another FG and a TD with 12 minutes to go, making it 38-37 Georgia. With 6:20 left on the clock, Blair Walsh kicked a 42-yard FG to go up 41-37. SC couldn't convert on a 4th-and-4, and 41-37 wound up the final score.
This game was electric, as were many others during a crazy Week Two. The next two games get even better.
