7. Sept. 10, 2011 - South Carolina 45 Georgia 42
Why It Makes The List
After a win over the Bulldogs helped South Carolina reach the SEC Championship game the previous year, the Gamecocks were searching for a second consecutive victory over Georgia. In a wild, back-and-forth affair that featured 60 points in the second half , defensive end Melvin Ingram stole the show. The senior took a fake punt 68 yards for a touchdown and scooped up a fumble from five yards out and took it to the end zone to give South Carolina its final points of the day. Marcus Lattimore battered the Bulldog defense for a second straight season, averaging 6.5 yards per carry and recording a 176 yards on the ground.
Why It's Not Higher
Despite the win over Georgia, South Carolina failed to get back to Atlanta. The Bulldog won their other seven games in conference play and represented the East in the SEC title game.
