No. 1 Georgia overcame a sluggish start to put South Carolina away in the second half on Saturday.

The Bulldogs beat the Gamecocks 24-14 thanks to 21 unanswered points in the final two quarters. The Gamecocks scored a late touchdown in the second quarter to lead 14-3 at halftime but Georgia cut that lead to four points less than three minutes into the second half.

The two-time defending national champs then took the lead for the first time midway through the third quarter on a short touchdown run by Dillon Bell.

As the offense found its footing, the defense also played better. South Carolina QB Spencer Rattler was 16-of-18 passing for 152 yards and a TD in the first half but the Gamecocks’ first three drives of the second half ended with punts. South Carolina ran just 12 offensive plays over those three drives and had two three-and-outs.

The Bulldogs then put the game away in the fourth quarter when running back Cash Jones scored from 13 yards out.

Is Georgia vulnerable?

Saturday’s game was the first decent test for a Georgia team that won its first two games by a combined score of 93-10. And there are some things the Bulldogs need to work on.

Kicker Peyton Woodring missed two field goals including a shank on a chip shot in the first half. RB Daijun Edwards was the only player to have consistent success on the ground and the offensive line lost Amarious Mims to what appeared to be a lower left leg injury. Edwards had 20 carries for 118 yards while the rest of the team combined for 24 carries for 78 yards.

Carson Beck didn’t make many mistakes as he was 27-of-35 passing for 269 yards but he could have managed the drive at the end of the first half better after the Gamecocks took an 11-point lead.
