When: 2:30 pm ET
Where: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, South Carolina
Stream: CBS Sports
NCAA Football Betting Odds:
The Bulldogs are coming off a highly successful 13-2 season and have already gotten started on building on that success. Georgia kicked in the door on the 2018 season with a dominant 45-0 routing of Austin Peay. All in all the Governors didn’t pose much of a problem to Georgia but a shutout win is still a shutout win. The most impressive fact on the day was that Georgia gained an astounding 508 yards of total offense. Even more impressive is that they were able to hold their opponent to a mere 152 total yards of offense. This weekend, Georgia will have to test their defensive prowess against a much tougher opponent. For a little perspective, South Carolina amassed 557 yards of total offense in their 2018 debut. Unfortunately for the Gamecocks, they just happen to be 0-3 in their last 3 matchups against Georgia.
Players to Watch: Jake Fromm (157 passing yards, 2 TD, 0 INT), Demetris Robertson (72 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 CAR), and Mecole Hardman (63 receiving yards, 1 TD, 2 REC).
South Carolina Gamecocks
The Gamecocks found modest success last season, finishing the year with a 9-4 record. All in all, the program is hopeful that they can build on that success this season. So far they’ve done a decent job since their Week 1 matchup resulted in a 49-15 triumph over Coastal Carolina. Now they’re tasked with facing the No.3 program in the nation, who just happens to be their longtime rival. No doubt South Carolina will have their hands full this weekend. And while their defense only gave up 238 in Week 1, we can anticipate a tougher outing for them this Saturday. Nevertheless, this weekend’s NCAA football betting odds are giving South Carolina a fighting chance.
Players to Watch: Jake Bentley (250 passing yards, 4 TD, 0 INT), Rico Dowdle (105 rushing yards, 1 TD, 7.0 AVG), and Shi Smith (61 receiving yards, 0 TD, 4 REC).
