in the Georgia-South Carolina series. It’s how well you run, too.
In the last nine meetings, Georgia averages 4.3 yards per carry in wins against South Carolina and just 3.8 yards per carry in losses. The Gamecocks, meanwhile, average 4.6 yards per carry in wins; 3.4 in losses. The team that cracks 4.0 yards per carry wins.
It’s worth noting that last year South Carolina averaged 6.3 yards per rush, but still lost. (Georgia averaged 4.3 ypc.) So it’s better just to say that the winning team averages over four yards a pop on the ground.
In any event, Georgia needs to run the ball well.
