LIVE Updates: Georgia vs South Carolina

Stay up to date on Georgia vs South Carolina with the SI Dawgs Daily Staff.

Georgia opens up SEC play with South Carolina inside Sanford Stadium for a 7 PM eastern time kickoff with the longtime SEC East rival. Both teams come into today’s action undefeated with a 2-0 record. Georgia is fresh off the more dominant win over UAB, which finished with a 56-7 final score. 

On the flip side, South Carolina comes off an away win over ECU (East Carolina University), where the Gamecocks needed a last-second field goal to win the game. That last-second field goal combined with Georgia’s great showing last week without starting quarterback JT Daniels gives Vegas the confidence to project Georgia as a heavy favorite. 

The game opened up with a 30 point spread in favor of the Dawgs but has since seen that total rise to 32 points. If starting quarterback JT Daniels makes his return to the field, the Dawgs may cover and possibly win by even more.
