COLUMBIA, SC – Dylan Thompson threw three touchdown passes and scored another on the ground as South Carolina held on to defeat Georgia 38-35 in an SEC East matchup Saturday afternoon.
The Gamecocks led 38-28 early in the fourth quarter after Brandon Wilds’ 24-yard touchdown run, but Georgia answered right back with a touchdown and a drive inside South Carolina’s 10-yard line. Trailing by three at the time, the Bulldogs were set back by a penalty and saw Marshall Morgan miss a 28-yard field goal that would’ve tied the game.
The start of the game was delayed nearly 90 minutes due to lightning in the area, but once play began the fireworks continued on the field, with both teams trading early scores. South Carolina led 24-13 at the half.
John Sadak and Derek Rackley called the action on Westwood One Sports.
