For the first time since the Notre Dame game, the Bulldogs trailed at halftime and would stay behind until two minutes left in regulation.

Fromm eventually led the offense on a game-tying touchdown drive that started at their own 4-yard-line. Fromm connected with Demetris Robertson to tie it up 17-17.

A missed 58-yard field goal from South Carolina and Georgia's failed Hail Mary attempt sent the game to overtime.

Neither team got on the board in the first overtime after Fromm threw his third interception of the game and White missed a 33-yard field goal.

White wouldn't miss for a third time to give the Gamecocks the win.

South Carolina turned to its third string quarterback Dakereon Joyner to lead the offense when Ryan Hilinski went down with an injury in the third quarter.
