So far in 2012, South Carolina has been the safer pick than Georgia. The Gamecocks are 4-1 against the spread, while the Bulldogs are 2-3.

South Carolina has had the better defense this season, allowing 11 points per game compared to Georgia's 22 ppg, but the Bulldogs offense has been more explosive, outscoring the Gamecocks 48.2 ppg to 36.6 ppg.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET at Williams-Brice Stadium.
