The Georgia Bulldogs romped the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night. The Gamecocks had trouble between the hedges and then some, as the Dawgs demolished them 40-13 to improve to 3-0 on the year.

JT Daniels stepped into action a week after missing the UAB game due to injury. Daniels thrived against the Gamecocks, throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns. His three TDs went to three different receivers, as Adonai Mitchell, James Cook, and Jermaine Burton each hauled in scores. Daniels did throw an interception, but it didn’t prove costly in the end.

The ground game was excellent for the Dawgs again. While they didn’t have a 100-yard rusher, they still gained 184 yards on the ground with 5.9 YPC. Kendall Milton was the team’s leading rusher with 66 yards on just 10 carries. Zamir White and James Cook each had 51, with Cook gaining that on just four carries.

South Carolina was well taken out of this one. The Gamecocks only mustered 2.8 YPC and threw for only 214 total yards. Luke Doty threw a touchdown to Josh Vann but also threw an INT to the hands of Derion Kendrick.

South Carolina draws the Kentucky Wildcats next week at home, while Georgia hits the road to Nashville to face the Vanderbilt Commodores.
