Finish South Carolina Remain Perfect on Season — Georgia Bulldogs

The attempt came after a short drive set up when the Bulldogs tried to catch SC napping to start the game and attempted an onside kick that was recovered by the Caleb Kinlaw at the 50-yard line.

That's something the Bulldogs had never done ever in an SEC game in Sanford Stadium.

SC went to Athens to play No. 1 Georgia Saturday.

The Bulldogs (9-0, 6-0 SEC) are off to their best start in 35 years since Walker, the legendary running back, was awarded the stiff-armed trophy and the Bulldogs began the season 11-0.

The SEC Championship berth caps quite a memorable week for the Bulldogs, who the College Football Playoff Committee ranked No. 1 over Alabama due to their strength of schedule and because they had beaten two top 25 teams. Georgia was No. 2 in the AP and coaches' polls. The last time the Bulldogs won the conference title was in 2005.

They finished with their second-lowest point total of the season and led by just 14-7 at halftime. Auburn is the one remaining ranked team on Georgia's schedule and will be the toughest game that Georgia has played since facing Notre Dame early in the season.

However, Georgia's balanced offense and two Jake Fromm passing touchdowns would be too much for Carolina to overcome as the Gamecocks fell to the top-ranked Bulldogs 24-10. However, Bulldogs freshman quarterback Jake Fromm finished 16-of-22 for 196 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Shutting down the run game and creating turnovers against SC is what clinched the game for the Dawgs.

The Gamecocks managed a field goal in the third quarter, but it was not enough. SC falls to 6-3, 4-3 in the SEC.

Outside linebacker Davin Bellamy knocked down a third-down pass in the fourth quarter to end one Gamecock possession, cornerback Deandre Baker broke up a 4-and-2 pass with 4:52 to go to get the ball back and cornerback Malkom Parrish intercepted a pass with 1:49 to go to seal the game. Most notably, starting defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth was hurt after chasing down Fromm on a 12-yard carry.

They settled for a field goal.

SC was able to tie Georgia at 7 in the first half, but the Bulldogs were up 14-7 at halftime. That score tied the game at 7-7 with 14:07 left in the second quarter, but the Bulldogs retook the lead with 9:27 left in quarter on Wims' score.

The Bulldogs answered and also needed a reversal on a replay review to pull back ahead. This time, Mecole Hardman was the recipient of the touchdown catch to end the drive giving Georgia a 21-7 advantage. Carolina, however, wasn't able to put the first points of the day on the board. Georgia rushed for 242 yards on 53 carries and a touchdown, while SC ran for only 43 yards on 17 carries.

Jake Fromm's performance in the first half was notable.
