It’s a cloudy Saturday evening over Sanford Stadium in Athens as the Georgia Bulldogs get ready to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks. This is WUOG’s first edition of the live football blog. I’ll be providing three updates every quarter, with one at halftime. Fell free to leave any comments on the blog during the game if you have any questions.
South Carolina comes into this matchup 1-0 after gutting out a 7-3 victory against North Carolina State. The Bulldogs are 0-1, coming off a 24-10 loss at the hands of Oklahoma State. Both teams will be looking for drastic improvements in their offenses.
