    In this match up the Auburn Tigers came to play in a down pouring game neither offenses could get any type of run or pass game in the 1st half with the Bulldogs scoring late in the 2nd quarter that was the only score in the 1st half. as the game went on the defenses for both teams why the play in SEC with very little scoring with the final score being 21-14 Mississippi st Robinson had 35 carries for 94 yrds with two 2 Tds Prescott went 23-34 with 245 yrds 1 Td and one pick my top receiver was my Te Malcolm Johnson with 11 catches 116 yrds and 1 Td
    Now the Bulldogs get to play 6 straight games away from home starting with with an SEC opponent The Parrothead #15 ranked South Caroline Gamecocks

    56-24 'Noles
    After a disappointing week one loss to Mississippi State, FSU had a bye week to prepare for Duke. Coming off the bye week the 'Noles were ready to play and took care of an inferior Blue Devil team. Underclassmen WR Levonte "Kermit" Whitfield emerged as a viable option in the passing game going forward with 3 catches for 123 yards and 2 TD's. Jameis Winston wasn't as sharp as we have seen in the past but made a couple of eye-opening throws that have me optimistic about the rest of the year. All three RB's looked good especially 2nd string James Wilder Jr. who had 83 yards on just 12 carries. 3rd string RB Mario Pender, who will be the feature back next season, broke a 43 yard TD run on his first carry. The defense stayed consistent through out the game and forced a couple of turnovers; one being a pick six by Terrance Smith. Karlos Williams added 8 tackles including a forced fumble.

    Next week the 'Noles travel to Chapel Hill to face the Tar Heels.

    The Gamecocks came into this one just hoping to keep up with the Bulldogs as much as possible, following big Georgia victories with the #1 rushing offense in the nation. Georgia would get the ball first and take their sweet time marching down the field. The drive would end with Georgia kicking a 31 yard FG to go up 3-0.

    Carolina would march the field themselves and do what Georgia couldn't on their first possession. QB Dylan Thompson found TE Rory Anderson from 9 yards out to give the Gamecocks a 7-3 lead. Georgia played ball control offense again, picking up chunks here and there. Every time the Carolina defense would look to hold, the Bulldogs would convert a crucial third down play. With 18 seconds left in the half, QB Christian LeMay would hit WR Michael Bennett for a 3 yard TD to put UGA back on top 10-7. The ensuing kickoff was downed in the end zone. Coach Eric Turner then decided to throw one deep and hope for the best, thinking at worst, it's intercepted and we keep UGA out of FG range to add to their lead. Thompson threw one up that looked well defended, as the receiver had a man a couple steps behind him and help over the top from the safety. The throw turned out to be perfectly placed. WR Bruce Ellington was hit in stride, and the UGA defenders ran into each other. With nothing between him and the end zone, Ellington sprinted the distance for the 75 yard TD. With 9 seconds left in the half, Carolina went back up 14-10 and would be receiving the ball to start the third quarter.

    Using some quick strike passes, the Gamecocks would score in 55 seconds. Thompson threw a high pass where Anderson could jump up and snag it. As he did, the UGA defenders pushed him into the end zone for a 29 yard TD reception. 21-10 Carolina. The Gamecock defense got a bit more conservative and played defenders off the ball a bit more. The Bulldogs were able to run the ball decently, but not pick up anything more than a few yards per carry. With 43 seconds left, FB Merritt Hall would punch it in from less than a yard out to bring Georgia back to within one possession, 21-17. The Gamecocks would get the ball and continue their drive into the 4th quarter.

    Converting some big third downs and catching defenders out of place, the Gamecocks were able to add to the lead when HB Shon Carson ran it in for a 4 yard TD, putting the 2 possession lead back into place at 28-17. With 5:17 left, UGA got the ball back and started their drive. Again, Carolina was looking to avoid giving up the big play. Georgia was still working their way up the field, but it all came to a grinding halt when LeMay threw an interception, sealing the Carolina win.

    Good game, Riptides
