Through three games in the season, no team has had an answer for the reigning College Football Playoff national champions in the Georgia Bulldogs.
Georgia once again cruised to a double-digit win in the campaign, as it took care of business with a 48-7 road win over South Carolina. The Bulldogs simply had their way on both sides of the ball, from the 208 rushing yards recorded to the three turnovers forced. Even as there was some expectation that Georgia would be dealt with somewhat of a challenge from South Carolina, this did not turn out to be the case at all.
Before this meeting between the two SEC rivals, Georgia and South Carolina had faced off a total of 74 times, with the largest margin of victory coming back in 1894 when the Bulldogs notched a 40-0 win. Now, the Bulldogs’ 41-point win against the Gamecocks on Saturday has broken this record.

Georgia continues to have its way over South Carolina, winning seven of its last eight such meetings.
Even after losing multiple standout talents on defense to the 2022 NFL Draft, Georgia has picked up where it left off from its national title-winning campaign last season, as it has outscored opponents by a 130-10 margin.
