South Carolina 17, Georgia 6: Columbia Has a Running Back

One drive into the game, it looked like Georgia was in serious trouble. South Carolina chewed up more than half of the first quarter on a long, run-heavy drive. The Bulldog defense would stiffen up some, and the Red and Black would never fall behind by more than two scores. 

However, South Carolina largely controlled the game with its fantastic freshman running back Marcus Lattimore. He carried it 37 times (!) for 182 yards and chipped in a reception for 16 yards. It's odd to watch Steve Spurrier lean on a running back like that, but it worked.

South Carolina may not be quite in the driver's seat in the East with Florida waking up some, but it has a mighty important tie breaker in its back pocket.
