After their loss to the Boise St. Broncos, multiple Georgia Bulldogs players looked on the bright side. Their primary goal for the season, to win the SEC East, was still in reach. That goal is already fading fast, as South Carolina put down Georgia in a 45-42 thriller.
The key play: star Cocks freshman Jadeveon Clowney stormed in blocked to loose the ball from Aaron Murray. Linemate David Ingram scooped and scored to make it a 10-point game with three minutes left -- Ingram's second of the game, as he also scored on a 68-yard punt return despite being a defensive lineman God help us all.
The Dawgs quickly retaliated, with Murray leading a four-play, 66-yard drive that ended with a toe-tapping touchdown catch by Tavarres King. The decision: to onside kick or to kick it deep, spend time outs and hope for a punt. Onside was the call, and Georgia doesn't have Auburn's luck.
South Carolina was able to achieve a first down on the legs of Marcus Lattimore, and that was that.
Georgia played well enough to win, but the seat warms.
