Georgia Vs. South Carolina: Bulldogs must watch turnovers

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Georgia Bulldogs would do well to take care of the ball against South Carolina this weekend

Turnovers nearly cost the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs last weekend against the Tennessee Volunteers. The Bulldogs will have to do better taking care of the ball Saturday night against the No. 6 South Carolina Gamecocks, writes the Athens Banner- Herald.

Last week against the Vols, Georgia turned the ball over three times in their own territory, including an interception return for a touchdown. A fumble by Aaron Murray late against South Carolina last season was a pivotal moment in the Bulldogs' loss. But as Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said, the team can't dwell on the mistakes:

"There better not be (any worries)," Bobo said. "You're going to have turnovers; it's going to happen. You've just got to do your best to limit those things and correct them fundamentally."

Head coach Mark Richt said turnovers won't necessarily dictate who wins or loses, though:

"I don't think it would sink our boat," he said. "Even the Tennessee game, we could've gotten stops without getting turnovers and still won the game while losing the turnover ratio."

Georgia and South Carolina's pivotal SEC East showdown kicks off at 7 p.m. ET and will be televised by ESPN.
