College Football: Where to watch South Carolina vs. Georgia, TV Channel, live stream and odds
Oct. 12, 2019
Week 7 of the college football season features a host of finely poised Top-25 matchups, but Georgia will simply be an interested observer.
Alabama, the No.1 ranked team in the country, meets No. 24 Texas A&M, while Florida takes on No. 5 LSU, No. 6 Oklahoma faces No. 11 Texas in the Red River Showdown and No. 10 Penn State and No. 17 Iowa cross paths.
Compared to the quartet, Georgia's matchup lacks both pedigree and intrigue, as the No. 3 ranked Bulldogs host unranked South Carolina.
Georgia thrashed Tennessee 43-14 on the road last week to move to 5-0.
Meanwhile their SEC East rivals languish at 2-3 after losing two of their three games against SEC programs.
It is therefore no surprise to see the Bulldogs arriving into the game as 24.5-point favorite.
Georgia has put up 42.8 points per game so far this season, racking up an average of 512.2 yards per game on the back of a very balanced offense. The Bulldogs average 250 rushing yards per game, while their passing game has produced 262.2 yards per game.
Jake Fromm may not have reached the dizzying heights of Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts , but has been consistently good this season. The Bulldogs quarterback has thrown for 1,076 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions so far this season.
The junior quarterback, who is yet to lose a game at home in his college career, ranks third and fifth in the nation in terms of passing completion rate and quarterback rating with 77.5 percent and 89.2, respectively.
Fromm could have a field day against a South Carolina defense that has allowed 390.8 total yards and 24.4 points per game this season.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Bulldogs have been just as impressive, allowing just 10.8 points and 278.6 yards per game. Georgia's defense was boosted by the news that defensive lineman Jordan Davis should be available for Saturday.
The sophomore injured his ankle against Tennessee in Week 6, but Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart sounded optimistic over Davis' chances.
"We think Jordan is going to be fine," Smart said at his press conference earlier this week, as per USA Today . "He was able to run and move around and do some things. He continues to improve. If he continues at this rate he'll be fine. He's ahead where Solly [Solomon Kindley] and Isaiah [Wilson] were each one of their weeks that they were cleared to play."
Here's all you need to know ahead of Saturday.

The Bulldogs have won the last four meetings between the two, with the most recent coming in September last year when they thrashed the Gamecocks 41-17 on the road.
According to Oddschecker , Georgia is a 24.5-point favorite and is 23/25 to win and cover the spread, while South Carolina is an 18/1 underdog and the over/under bar in terms of total points scored is set at 52.5.
