At the half: South Carolina 14, Georgia 3

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina took a 14-3 lead over Georgia into halftime Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Here’s a quick halftime analysis:

Player of the half: South Carolina freshman running back Marcus Lattimore has been a man. Not only that, he’s been THE man for the Gamecocks with 103 rushing yards and both touchdowns on 21 carries.

Turning point: It had to be the first possession of the game when the Gamecocks kept it 16 plays and shoved it down the Bulldogs’ throats. Over and over again, Lattimore and sophomore receiver Alshon Jeffery ran through Georgia defenders. It was a woeful tackling exhibition by the Bulldogs.

What Georgia needs to do: It’s not real complicated. The Bulldogs have to win more battles up front defensively, start wrapping up when they go to tackle somebody and not let Lattimore gash them on first down.
