ATHENS, Ga. -- The Georgia-South Carolina matchup has been circled since the 2012 SEC schedule was released, with fans on each side predicting that it would be one of the most significant single games of the entire season in determining the winner of the SEC East race.

Sure enough, the No. 5 Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0 SEC) and No. 6 Gamecocks (5-0, 3-0) made it this far without hitting a roadblock, creating exactly the high-stakes showdown most of us expected before the season started. Now it’s a matter of one team ignoring the enormous number of eyeballs that will follow what happens at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday night and taking a giant step toward winning the division title and staying in the race for a national championship.

Let’s take a look at some of the significant factors entering Saturday’s matchup:
