The 2023 edition of the South Carolina vs. Georgia rivalry is on the way with the Gamecocks hoping to repeat history and pull off an upset of a highly-ranked Bulldogs team.

Spencer Rattler leads the Gamecocks into Sanford Stadium as a 27-point underdog this time. Suffice it to say, the Bulldogs aren't expected to trip up in this Week 3 matchup, but the upset victim rarely is.

Before we see whether Carson Beck and the Bulldogs can withstand the upstart Gamecocks, let's look at the history of the series.

When is the last time South Carolina beat Georgia?

The Gamecocks have been dominated by the Bulldogs over the last decade but their last victory in the series wasn't so long ago.

The last time South Carolina beat Georgia was in 2019 at Sanford Stadium, 20-17. The double-overtime upset of the No. 3 team in the country was engineered by Israel Mukuamu, who picked off Jake Fromm three times and returned one of those interceptions for a touchdown.

Ryan Hilinski started at quarterback but an injury knocked him out and Dakeron Jyner had to take over.
