Gasps, surrender cobras, disbelief: Georgia fans were sad all around in upset to South Carolina
Georgia fans had a rough Saturday during and after the upset loss to South Carolina, 20-17, following a missed field goal attempt from Rodrigo Blankenship in the second overtime.
It ended Georgia’s 15-game winning streak against the SEC East, and put championship hopes in jeopardy for the No. 3 Bulldogs. Calls of “C’mon Big O,” and “Wake up, Georgia,” from the Sanford Stadium faithful went unanswered by the Bulldogs, as South Carolina didn’t register one turnover, and Georgia had 4. Georgia’s vaunted oversized offensive line and running game struggled to find a rhythm as it finished with 173 rushing yards on 43 attempts.
Disgrunted by the lack of consistent offense in a game where Georgia was a 24.5-point favorite, fans threw up surrender cobras in Sanford Stadium as QB Jake Fromm threw 3 interceptions, all to Israel Mukuamu. Blankenship’s second miss of the game came after South Carolina kicker Parker White missed a field goal attempt of his own in the first overtime.
Fromm’s 3 picks were the first of the season after he went 111 passing attempts through 5 games without one.
Georgia LB Adam Anderson was flagged for a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty on a late hit on South Carolina QB Ryan Hilinski in the third quarter.
