Georgia Bulldogs flatten Charleston Southern, 55-9


The Georgia Bulldogs made short work of their visitors from Charleston Southern on Saturday, with a 55-9 romp at Sanford Stadium. UGA head coach Mark Richt improved his home record to 55-1 against non-conference opponents, and with the win, the team is now 9-2 on the season.

In what was seen as a tune up game prior to their big matchup next week with Georgia Tech, the Dawgs did not disappoint the home crowd. Georgia scored two quick touchdowns on their first three plays from scrimmage. The Bulldogs dominated the game from beginning to end, and out-gained their Big South Conference foes with 580 yards against just 211 for the visiting Bucs.

Charleston Southern could only muster 18 passing yards against the stingy Bulldog defense that only allowed them past midfield 3 times the entire game.

Running back Nick Chubb only needed to play the first half to pick up 113 yards and 2 touchdowns. This was Chubb’s sixth consecutive 100-yard game of this season. Hutson Mason looked very sharp in only one half of game. He was 10 for 12 passing for 187 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Being up 38-3 at halftime, the Georgia Bulldogs got to put in their second team options on both sides of the ball, and they did not let up much in their action. Both backup quarterbacks, Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta, also saw action for Georgia.

The Georgia Bulldogs will be in action next against the hated in-state rival Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Sanford Stadium on November 29. Stay tuned for wall to wall coverage of that yearly battle.
