Also on deck: South Carolina travels to Arkansas to take on a team that has historically caused problems for the Gamecocks, while Texas A&M; squares off with Ole Miss in a battle that could continue the Year of the Offense in the SEC
This is perhaps the most controversial of the cross-division permanent rivalries, but I for one am glad it exists. It's only rarely not an interesting game, and while heated, it seems to lack the bad kind of vitriol that some rivalries have.
It's the Missouri Untesteds at the Georgia Walking Wounded. We're going to learn a lot about these teams once this one is done.
Pour one out for the Rivalry of 1992, as this is the last time these two play as designated rivals. Stating next year, South Carolina will get Texas A&M; in order to set up an annual border war between Arkansas and Mizzou.
When putting this post together, I looked at the kickoff time and thought, "that's got to be on pay-per-view". Sure enough, it is. Nothing on regular TV ever kicks off at this time.
This game is brought to you by the letters N, S, F, and W.
The Bulldogs' pattern of lose one-win one should continue as they try to bounce back from the loss to LSU with a MAC snack.
The Rebels had better snap out of their funk soon, because the degree of difficulty doesn't ratchet down for another couple of weeks.
