The Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks will face off in a battle of top-10 teams this Saturday in Columbia, S.C. South Carolina head coach and longtime UGA nemesis Steve Spurrier said that while he hasn't started breaking down film of the Bulldogs, their offensive production has been impossible to ignore:

"I keep seeing a bunch of long runs by those Bulldog freshmen," said Spurrier, speaking of tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. "That’s probably a good message when you think you lose a top running that has some issues like the kid they had there last year [Isaiah Crowell], maybe the next guys can come in and play as well or better. So the long runs is what I noticed mostly yesterday. And, of course [Aaron] Murray hit a bunch of big passes, too. They were a scoring machine."

Georgia has yet to see a defense as strong as South Carolina's, which is sixth in the country in scoring defense (11.2 points/game) and 14th in total defense (288.8 yards/game). It will be interesting to see if the Dawgs can keep up their frenetic scoring pace for another week.
