USC vs. Georgia preview: Bulldogs go for two straight wins

Georgia has struggled to put a winning streak together, but will look for its first one of the year against USC.

The Georgia Bulldogs are hosting the USC Trojans at Stegeman Coliseum on Saturday afternoon, looking to keep some momentum going after beating Mercer earlier in the week.

Things haven't gotten off to a very good start for the Bulldogs thus far. Georgia (3-7) has struggled mightily on the offensive end, leading coach Mark Fox to start playing some of the younger guys more in hopes of finding a spark.

Against Mercer, freshman Charles Mann and sophomore John Cannon were starters for the first time in their time at Georgia, according to Coach Fox on dogbytes.com:

“They’ve earned their minutes,They’re getting minutes that they’ve earned and they’re trying to take advantage of them. They’re still freshmen, so they’re going to make a lot of plays for both teams. But the great thing is they’re learning and getting those major minutes and recently have been very productive for us.”

USC (4-7) certainly has been a far cry from great in its own right. The Trojans haven't been able to find much traction this season after starting the year with consecutive victories.

In fairness, USC has played a brutal schedule including four games against ranked opponents such as the Marquette Golden Eagles and Illinois Fighting Illiini, whom they came up short against.
