South Carolina-Georgia bout on College GameDay's radar
ESPN’s College GameDay parked its set on the Horseshoe in ‘famously hot’ Columbia, S.C. last time Georgia traveled to Williams-Brice Stadium to take on the Gamecocks in 2012, a nationally-ranked primetime battle pitting two of the nation’s top six teams.
It appears everyone’s preferred pre-game show may once again be coming to the Gamecocks’ city for the early-season Eastern Division rivalry if both teams are unbeaten heading into their Sept. 13 bout.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, who recently chatted with GameDay’s executive producer Lee Fitting, “If Georgia and South Carolina are undefeated for Week Three, it is a near-lock GameDay will be in Columbia, S.C., for that game.”
South Carolina’s hosted GameDay six times in school history including a memorable 35-21 victory over top-ranked Alabama in 2010.
