8. Sept. 11, 2010 - South Carolina 17 Georgia 6
Why It Makes The List
South Carolina had managed just one win against Georgia since 2002 and had not won a meeting of ranked teams since 2007. The 24th-ranked Gamecocks unleashed phenomenal freshman Marcus Lattimore against the 22nd-ranked Bulldogs and the Duncan native did not disappoint. The tailback rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries, marking the highest output by a Gamecock running back since 2007. While Lattimore and the offense pounded the Bulldogs, South Carolina's defense was equally impressive, holding Georgia without a touchdown for the first time in three years. The 11-point win was the largest margin of victory in the series since an 18-0 Georgia win in 2006.
Why It's Not Higher
Even though the game was Lattimore's coming out party, it was not his greatest performance. The Bulldogs also dropped their first three conference games and wound up limping to a 6-7 record.
