Comments

Here’s a game that should be fairly easy to predict. South Carolina going on the road to Athens. The Gamecocks might have been able to compete better if they still had Jake Bentley as QB but they don’t. South Carolina will lose this game but the Gamecocks won’t be blown out as badly as some of the other team’s Georgia has beaten.
