COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The most damaging byproduct of Georgia’s inability to move the ball on the ground Saturday against South Carolina was the regular third-and-long situations that made life rough on Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray.

Considering how often Murray and the Bulldogs faced third-and-8 or longer, it’s no surprise that South Carolina’s talented defensive line was able to harass Georgia’s junior signal-caller throughout the game, leading to a 35-7 Gamecocks win.

“You’ve got to make those plays when you’ve got a chance and try to get them on their heels and we could not do that,” Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “You can’t ask anybody to just constantly on third down-and-long or second-and-long to protect. There’s just too much pressure. We couldn’t get the running game going tonight and it hurt us.”
