The Bulldogs held Samford to 128 total yards and 19 yards on the ground, and Georgia thoroughly manhandled a talented Oregon team at a semi-neutral site in Atlanta.

Georgia is No. 1 among SEC teams in averaging 525 total yards per game this season, and the Bulldogs are averaging 41 points per game. The Bulldogs are lighting it up through the air with 395 passing yards per game, and Georgia is generating 9.9 yards per pass attempt with only one sack allowed.

South Carolina brought in a lot of talent and experience at quarterback in the offseason. Spencer Rattler, a former five-star prospect, transferred from Oklahoma, where he threw for more than 4,500 yards and 40 touchdowns for the Sooners. Rattler has 603 passing yards in two games at South Carolina, averaging 7.9 yards per pass attempt this season.
