Alshon Jeffery key for Gamecocks
By Chris Low
ATHENS, Ga. -- South Carolina receiver Alshon Jeffery had been sort of quiet this season ... until now.
The last thing Georgia wanted to have today was Branden Smith matched up a lot with Jeffery. Smith is 5-11 and 176 pounds, and Jeffery is 6-4 and 230 pounds.
Jeffery was able to get behind Smith and make a fabulous 34-yard touchdown catch to give South Carolina a 7-6 lead, just getting a foot down before going out of bounds. Stephen Garcia scrambled right and put the ball up high where only Jeffery could get it.
He's going to win that matchup every time.
