GEORGIA 14, South Carolina 0


  • Because of Hurricane Matthew, this game is being played on Sunday, marking the first time in UGA football history the Bulldogs have played a regular-season game on a Sunday (Georgia has made four Sunday bowl appearances). Before today, the last time the Dogs played a regular-season game not on a Saturday was in 1995 when they faced Georgia Tech on Thanksgiving.
  • The point spread closed with Georgia being favored by 6½ points. Of the last 26 Georgia-South Carolina games played in Columbia (beginning in 1959), the Bulldogs have been at least a 6-point favorite half the time (13 games).


  • In the first half, Georgia rushed for 195 yards. The last time the Bulldogs rushed for more than 300 yards in a single game was when they did so three times during the 2014 season.
  • In the first half, Georgia passed for a mere 14 yards. The last time the Bulldogs passed for 75 yards or less in a single game was nearly 20 years ago when they threw for only 55 yards against Kentucky in 1997.
  • At the half, Nick Chubb has carried 12 times for 72 yards and two touchdowns, marking the ninth time in his collegiate career he has rushed for two or more touchdowns in a single game. Entering today, Georgia is a perfect 8-0 when Chubb rushes for two or more touchdowns.


  • After allowing its last three opponents—Missouri, Ole Miss, and Tennessee—to average roughly 20 first downs, Georgia has yielded just three first downs to South Carolina.
  • After the average starting field position for their last two opponents, Ole Miss and Tennessee, was their own 31 and 35-yard lines, respectively, South Carolina’s average starting field position in the first half was only its own 17-yard line.
  • Before today, the last time Georgia had shutout an SEC opponent in the first half was nearly two years ago to the day: at Missouri on October 11, 2014, whereby the Bulldogs led the Tigers 20-0 at the half and eventually won, 34-0.
