ATHENS – Georgia-South Carolina games tend to be close, with seven of the past nine decided by seven points or fewer. This week’s polls portend a typically competitive contest Saturday in Columbia.
Both teams are ranked, and not far apart.
In the week’s Associated Press media poll, Georgia is No. 22 and South Carolina No. 24. In the USA Today coaches’ poll, Georgia is No. 19 and South Carolina No. 25.
“I would have to imagine another knockdown dragout in Columbia,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday.
Three voters in the AP poll, by the way, ranked Georgia as high as No. 13.
