This week's games: South Carolina at Georgia

Many similarities between these two teams so far. First, they both faced outstanding quarterbacks in their first week and kept themselves in these games by keeping those same quarterbacks in check. Russell Wilson managed only 74 passing yards against a still stout USC pass defense and Zac Robinson squeeked out 135 yards against the Bulldogs. But their own quarterback play from Stephen Garcia and Joe Cox was dodgy enough to merit only 7 points for South Carolina (a win) and 10 for Georgia (a loss). In other words, great pass defense will be nullified by an inability to pass the ball. Georgia is at home, is the better team, and really needs this win after losing in week 1, so expect them to win, but they will need to do it with their running game. On the other hand, Georgia caught South Carolina at just the right time last season (see above), but still just escaped with a 14-7 win in Columbia. Without Stafford and Moreno, this one might go the other way.
