Georgia struggled offensively against South Carolina, so much so that the Bulldogs failed to score until the waning minutes of the game. They finished with just 224 total yards and the running game was just about non-existent.

When it came to throwing the ball, South Carolina's front outmatched the Bulldogs' offensive line and made things tough on quarterback Aaron Murray. Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said while he'll need to check out the game film, he suspects that when a quarterback gets hit a lot, it's difficult to trust the protection.

So perhaps that was the cause of Murray missing a few key throws that could've helped Georgia's cause. It was a regrettable performance for Murray, numbers-wise. He completed just 35 percent of his passes and threw a pick as well.

Here's some insight from Bobo after the game:

"There obviously were times that we didn't handle No. 7 (Clowney), that he made a big impact on the football game. We knew coming in he was gonna be a tough guy to handle. Their defense is very good. We didn't make any plays there in the first half to kind of change the momentum."
