It’s not just how much you run…

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.

    Last year’s game is on SECN right now. The biggest thing that stands out a year later regarding USCe on offense is how mobile Shaw was. He extended play after play with his legs – – Thompson just doesn’t have that ability….

    Watching SEC channel now. Last years UGA vs USCe. Herrera causes fumble on a Conner Shaw scramble. Marshall on a wheel route. Go Dawgs!

    Everybody already knows scu is gonna have 7+ in the box. Need the OL to protect Mason while he, Bennett, Conley, Rome, & Co. have the best game of their careers.
