ATHENS, GA - Mark Richt needs a win in the worst way. Steve Spurrier is in no mood to help a rival coach.
No. 12 South Carolina (1-0) has its sights on a second straight trip to the Southeastern Conference championship game, and Spurrier's Gamecocks can take a giant step toward that goal with a win Saturday over Richt's Georgia Bulldogs.
Georgia (0-1) is coming off a 35-21 loss to No. 4 Boise State, which knocked the Bulldogs out of the Top 25 and turned up the heat on Richt even more. The coach who won a pair of SEC titles early in his career and led his team to a No. 2 finish in the national rankings just four years ago desperately needs a big victory to show his program is still relevant in the mighty SEC.
