Georgia football went to Columbia, S.C., and showed no mercy to the South Carolina Gamecocks as the Dawgs won 48-7. For the third straight game, the Dawgs blew out their opponent, and the only reason South Carolina scored was that the backups were in on defense.
We won’t even waste any more time talking about that score from them because what Georgia did outweighs it. The Dawgs manhandled the Gamecocks and bullied them all day long.
For the third straight week, Georgia punched their opponent in the mouth and made them look silly. Georgia looked so strong — from top to bottom, the Dawgs looked elite.
Georgia football looks unstoppable after steamrolling South Carolina.
The Dawgs’ offense put on an explosive show. As a whole, Georgia recorded 547 total yards with 339 passing yards and 208 rushing yards.
Georgia’s defense forced three interceptions and held the Gamecocks to 92 yards on the ground, 214 passing yards and 306 as a whole. Those numbers should fluster the Dawg fans because the Gamecocks had to find success through the air, and they barely got that done.
The Dawgs held South Carolina to 17 first downs, and the Gamecocks only converted four third downs all day. Georgia, on the other hand recorded 30 first downs and went 5-of-9 on third down, which is better than last week.
Starting quarterback Stetson Bennett had a day and solidified his Heisman talk even more.
Bennett was unstoppable as he went 16-of-23 for 284 yards and two touchdowns. He also led the Dawgs in rushing with three carries for 36 yards and one score.
Three straight games Bennett has left in the third quarter so his backups can come in and close out the show.
Brock Bowers reintroduced himself after two weeks by leading the team with five catches for 121 yards and two scores. His 78-yard touchdown pass set him over the edge as Bowers made that entire South Carolina defense look silly. Oh, did we mention he had one rush for five yards that went for the first touchdown of the day?
He is still the best tight end in the country, and this game just reignited everything.
Ladd McConkey looked strong too. He had four catches for 52 yards. Oscar Delp caught his first touchdown of his collegiate career off a 28-yard pass from Carson Beck.
Georgia has only given up 10 points all year, and it’s just downright impressive. Jamon Dumas-Johnson led the Dawgs on Saturday with six stops.
This game was another dominating performance for the Dawgs and one that should silence a lot of the haters. Georgia shouldn’t get too cocky moving forward because it only gets tougher after next week’s game, but still, these are all strong signs that greatness is coming.
The Dawgs did their job and continue to prove why they are the No.1 team in the country. A 41-point win over an SEC East foe — Georgia, will take that every single time.
