Breakdown

The Bulldogs lead the series with South Carolina 52-19-2, and they have won five out of the last six in the series that dates back to 1894. However, the Gamecocks delivered Georgia its first loss in 2019 (20-17 2OT) in Athens. Since becoming SEC Eastern Division rivals in 1992, the Bulldogs own a 19-10 lead in the series. The Bulldogs are 4-1 overall against the Gamecocks in the Kirby Smart era.

First-year Gamecock head coach Shane Beamer was on Smart’s staff at Georgia in 2016-17 as tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. After serving in several roles for Oklahoma from 2018-20, Beamer took over at South Carolina prior to this season. Will Muschamp is now a member of Smart’s staff after coaching the Gamecocks from 2016-20.

During the Bulldogs’ win over No. 3 Clemson in Charlotte, N.C., the Tigers finished the night with just three points on 60 plays and 180 yards as the Bulldogs tallied seven sacks. The Tigers previously had a streak of 400 yards of total offense in their past 12 games. In the first half, Georgia held the Tigers to 90 yards (one rushing yard, 89 pass- ing) on 30 plays. Georgia carried a shutout through three quarters. The Tigers longest play of the night was a 44-yard completion in the fourth quarter. The Tigers scored with 9:08 left in the game on a 22-yard field goal to cut Georgia’s lead to 10-3. Clemson’s three points were the fewest scored in the Dabo Swinney era and the fewest for the pro- gram since 2007.

The Bulldogs’ leading tackler was safety Lewis Cine with nine and six different players registered a sack. Junior ILB Nakobe Dean led the way with a pair of sacks while senior N Jordan Davis collected two tackles for loss and a sack. Davis was named the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week as well as the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week. In game two this year, Georgia defeated UAB 56-7.

Georgia had held its first two opponents to a total of 10 points, which matches the fewest since the 2003 season. That year, the Bulldogs blanked Clemson 30-0 on the road and then beat Middle Tennessee State 29-10 in Athens. This year, Georgia defeated No. 3 Clemson 10-3 in Charlotte and then routed UAB 56-7 in Athens. It is worth nothing that UAB’s touchdown came on a pick-six.

The lowest three-game scoring total by Bulldogs opponents to open a season under Smart is 23 in 2019 as Georgia beat Vanderbilt 30-6 in Nashville, then whipped Murray State 63-17 and blanked Arkansas State 55-0 in Athens. The lowest three-game scoring total by Bulldog opponents to open a season in recent history would be 12 points in 2006. That year, Georgia opened with a 48-12 win over Western Kentucky in Athens, then shutout South Carolina 18-0 in Columbia and blanked UAB 34-0 in Athens.
