The Gamecocks In Athens This Millenium

Kevin C. Cox

This Saturday will mark the seventh matchup of the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens, GA since the turning of the millenium. After winning in Williams-Brice in 2000, the first of the games "between the hedges" ended in dramatic fashion as Brian Scott went over a Georgia defender to catch a 16-yard game-winning touchdown pass from Phil Petty. South Carolina earned a 14-9 victory, and "The Catch" was born. Here's a look at the final outcome of the previous six meetings at Sanford Stadium:

2011 ~ South Carolina 45 Georgia 42

2009 ~ Georgia 41 South Carolina 37

2007 ~ South Carolina 16 Georgia 12

2005 ~ Georgia 17 South Carolina 15

2003 ~ Georgia 31 South Carolina 7

2001 ~ South Carolina 14 Georgia 9

It's an even three wins and three losses between the two programs. What will come of the 2013 battle of the Gamecocks and Bulldogs?
