#5 vs. #6

It is games like this one that makes me love college football!  The Georgia Bulldogs will be traveling to Columbia, SC this weekend to play Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks.  This match up puts the fifth ranked Dawgs against the sixth ranked Gamecocks.  I am already nervous about the game! 

This should be a dandy of a game!  The Dawgs are averaging 48 points a game with 536 total yards per game but the Gamecocks defense has only allowed 11 points per game and 289 total yards per game.  So something will have to give! 

I predict is going to be a low scoring, knock down, drag out fight with the Dawgs barely getting by.  The difference is going to come from the lines.  The Gamecocks have one of the toughest defensive lines in the country while the Dawgs have a young and inexperienced offensive line.  But if they can contain the two stud defensive ends for South Carolina and make some holes for Gurshall (Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall) the Dawgs might be able to get some yards.  If the Dawgs can win the turnover ratio, I think they can win the game. 

Also, ESPN’s Gameday will be broadcasting from outside the stadium, so I am not the only one who thinks this is a big game!  I just hope Lee Corso doesn’t pick the Dawgs to win!  He record is horrible! 

Go Dawgs!
