This might sound a bit obvious, but beating Georgia is a very good sign for South Carolina football.

On the other hand, they are 36–67–1 in conference games in the 13 seasons in which they have lost to the Bulldogs, and only once, in 2005, has South Carolina had a winning SEC record without beating Georgia.

Georgia Running Back Caleb King Ruled Ineligible
