No. 1 Georgia is looking to win its third-consecutive national title this season and that journey continues Saturday when it starts SEC play at home Between The Hedges against South Carolina. The Bulldogs haven’t been challenged so far in their 2-0 start, winning their first two games by a combined score of 93-10, but the dangerous Gamecocks showed themselves to be capable of a major upset twice last year against Clemson and Tennessee.
It’s a series in which Georgia has held the upper hand recently. Under coach Kirby Smart, the Bulldogs are 6-1 against the Gamecocks — including 2-0 against former Smart assistant Shane Beamer. Georgia has even more on the line in terms of streaks, having won 29 consecutive regular-season games (a run going back to Nov. 2020) and 19 straight overall. While Georgia carries streaks from previous years, the team on the field in 2023 has been mostly defined by the new contributors.
Quarterback Carson Beck has been effective in his first starts, guiding an offense that’s piled on points early and built big enough leads to rest by the start of the fourth quarter. It’s not just Beck, though. Georgia’s leading rusher is true freshman Roderick Robinson II, and sophomore Mekhi Mews is one of the team’s leading receivers after logging just two receptions in four games last season.
That group faces SEC competition for the first time on Saturday with the Gamecocks in town looking to bounce back following their season-opening loss to North Carolina. South Carolina is now 1-1 after a win against Furman, a top-10 FCS team, but faces its own raised level of competition going up against the reigning champs.
