Jadeveon ClowneyJim Dedmon/Icon SMIRangy sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, along with Devin Taylor, presents a huge challenge for Georgia's offensive line this weekend.
ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia’s offensive line has exceeded reasonable expectations to this point, clearing the way for the Bulldogs’ skill players to post eye-popping point totals each week.

But they haven’t played a defense like South Carolina’s yet -- so they realize their biggest test will arrive Saturday night in Columbia, S.C.

“This game will definitely be the best gauge,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said of a Gamecocks defense that ranks second in the SEC with 11.2 points allowed per game. “South Carolina’s defense is playing great. They’re not playing good, they’re playing great. They’re kind of used to playing great.”
Is Josh Sweat The Next Jadeveon Clowney?
Recruits at Nike's The Opening were asked who they thought was the biggest freak athlete in the class. The consensus was defensive end Josh Sweat, who recently moved up to the No. 1 spot in the ESPN 300.
