2016 Georgia Season Preview
The Georgia Bulldogs finished a tie-breaker away from winning the SEC East last season. Despite a 34-0 trouncing of the eventual division winning Missouri Tigers, the Bulldogs were left out of the SEC title game. The high flying Bulldogs offense will turn the keys over to Brice Ramsey in 2015, but the key player for the Georgia offense will be running back Nick Chubb. Chubb stepped in for an injured Todd Gurley last season and proved to be one of the best backs in the SEC. Blocking for Chubb will be a Bulldog offensive line that might be the best in the SEC East, and should provide ample time for Chubb and Ramsey to operate in the backfield. There will be some questions marks for Georgia on the defensive side of the ball in 2015, as talented underclassmen Trenton Thompson, and Dominick Sanders step into the starting roles. The SEC East is wide open in 2015, with Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Missouri all having legitimate chances of bringing home the title. Key for Georgia’s 2015 SEC chances will be home games against South Carolina, Alabama, Missouri, and Florida.

Georgia vs. South Carolina
While Georgia has a significant lead in the all-time series, the Gamecocks have had the upper hand recently in this inter-state battle. With recruiting battles heating up between the two schools and SC coach Steve Spurrier saying that the Bulldogs were their biggest conference rival, this matchup will get more heated every year.
Held annually in Jacksonville at Everbank Field, it’s the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party – one of the only places where the pre-game is as crazy and adventurous as the contest itself. Fans from Athens and Gainesville make the trip to Jacksonville to be a part of a huge rivalry and lots of fun, and this game is a must for any college football fan.
It’s just some “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate” and so far, it’s the Bulldogs that are coming out victorious most of the time. The universities were founded over a century apart, but the hate is embedded in everything, including both school’s fight songs. If you’re a Georgia fan, you love to sign “To hell with Georgia Tech!” and this game is the best place to do it.
This is the most-played rivalry game in Georgia’s history, making it become known as the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.” The first game was played in 1892 and to the second of this publishing, it’s a dead heat at wins, losses and ties. Both teams are college football powerhouses, and thus the game has had national title implication on the line many times. This is THE game for the hardcore Georgia (or even college football) fan to see in person.
