ESPN ranks The Bulldogs # 5 of 14 in The SEC 2017 Power Rankings and says we beat # 12 in The SEC South Carolina whom ESPN says “still has a long way to go to be among the top half of the SEC” while ESPN says The Georgia Bulldogs are the “trendy SEC East pick.”


No. 5 Georgia vs. No. 12 South Carolina

Aschoff: The Bulldogs are turning into that early trendy SEC East pick with all that defensive talent and experience returning. Expect Jacob Eason to hit more than a couple of big plays on that South Carolina secondary. Georgia 27, South Carolina 14

Ching: Jacob Eason and Nick Chubb team up against a rebuilding defense. Georgia 28, South Carolina 21

Khan: There’s always a 5-12 upset in the NCAA tournament, right? Let’s call it here. With a healthy Skai Moore in tow, Will Muschamp’s defense shuts down the Bulldogs. South Carolina 17, Georgia 13

Ostendorf: The Gamecocks will be a team to watch this fall, but Georgia is just too talented. I see Nick Chubb and Sony Michel both racking up big yards. Georgia 35, South Carolina 17

Scarborough: Nick Chubb and Sony Michel run roughshod over a South Carolina front seven that still has a long way to go to be among the top half of the SEC. Georgia 28, South Carolina 18

WINNER: Georgia
