COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Marcus Lattimore rushed for 182 yards and
two first-half touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina held off No. 22
Georgia 17-6 on Saturday.

The Bulldogs (1-1, 0-1 SEC) played without suspended star
receiver A.J. Green and they sure could've used him against the
Gamecocks (2-0, 1-0) in the Southeastern Conference opener.

Georgia was outgained by more than 100 yards and held without a
touchdown for the first time in three years since its last loss to
South Carolina, 16-12, in 2007.

The Bulldogs' best chance to tighten the game came in the third
quarter when they drove to the South Carolina 3 while trailing
14-6. But Washuan Ealey fumbled and cornerback Stephon Gilmore
recovered to end the threat.

Green was penalized four games by the NCAA for selling a game
jersey for $1,000. He did not accompany the team on the trip.
