College Football Saturday: #3 Georgia Meets #24 South Carolina in an SEC Showdown

This SEC matchup will probably be the best early game today.

Obviously, there’s no question that the most important game to Bruin fans will be today’s matchup of the UCLA Bruins and the #6 Oklahoma Sooners. But what about the rest of the slate?

Another matchup that intrigues me this morning is Arizona vs. Houston, beginning at 9:00 am PT on ABC. Neither team is ranked and Arizona is coming off a loss with their new head coach and former Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin. Houston is 1-0 after a fairly decent 7-5 2017 season under head coach Major Applewhite. This game is being played in Houston. So, I think there is a decent chance that the Wildcats could be 0-2 by Saturday afternoon.

But, the most interesting game of the day that doesn’t involve UCLA is also the only early game that features two ranked opponents. In this SEC matchup, #3 Georgia will face #24 South Carolina. I have no doubt Georgia will take this one, but we should see some pretty good football, especially since Georgia coaches feel they have a pretty good thing going with sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm.
