Special season for Bulldogs? Here’s what stands in their way now


Georgia improved to 6-0 by running over and through Vanderbilt in a 45-14 win Saturday in Nashville.

The Bulldogs got a bonus later Saturday when top SEC East rival Florida lost to LSU.

Here's what stands in the way of a special season for Georgia now:

(Georgia is off Oct. 21)

2. Oct. 28 vs. Florida in Jacksonville, 3:30 p.m. The Gators are 3-2, 3-1 in the SEC after falling to LSU 17-16 Saturday. Quarterback Feleipe Franks passed for just 108 yards and was sacked five times. 

3. Nov. 4 vs. South Carolina in Athens: The Gamecocks are 4-2, 2-2 in the SEC after hammering Arkansas 48-22 at home Saturday. The Gamecocks’ defense scored three touchdowns and QB Jake Bentley had three TD passes as South Carolina beat a team from the SEC West for the first time since 2013.
