The Georgia Bulldogs began the 2011 college football season by losing their first two games versus the Boise State Broncos and the South Carolina Gamecocks. Since then, the Bulldogs have won five in a row and seem to be on a roll.
The Dawgs have only lost one conference game, and find themselves currently tied with the Gamecocks for first in the SEC East. For UGA to win the SEC East, they need the Gamecocks to lose another game in the SEC, which is likely since they are decimated with injuries and still have to play Tennessee Volunteers
, Florida Gators
, and Arkansas Razorbacks
. They will also have to face those opponents without their best player, RBMarcus Lattimore
UGA still has Florida, Auburn Tigers
, and Kentucky Wildcats
left on their SEC schedule. Florida currently finds itself in a similar situation as South Carolina with key injuries to quarterback John Brantley
and RB Jeff Demps
. Auburn is extremely young and inconsistent. Their offense has struggled badly in the last three or four weeks. Kentucky is Kentucky, and they should be an easy win for UGA.
Georgia has one of the easiest SEC schedules this season because they did not have to play LSU Tigers
, Alabama Crimson Tide
, or Arkansas. Georgia's remaining SEC schedule is also easier than the Gamecocks remaining SEC games. Georgia does, however, have to play the Gators next weekend, which has been a hurdle Georgia has rarely been able to overcome in the last 30 years.
