ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Greyson Lambert answered his skeptics with a near-perfect performance, throwing for 330 yards, three touchdowns and setting a Georgia record with 20 straight completions to lead the No. 7 Bulldogs to a 52-20 victory over South Carolina on Saturday night.
Lambert’s 24-of-25 performance set a new NCAA mark for highest completion percentage in a game (96%).
Nick Chubb eclipsed 100 yards rushing for the 11th game in a row, carrying 21 times for 159 yards and two scores. Sony Michel ran for a TD and had two more receiving.
Georgia (3-0, 2-0 SEC) seized control with a touchdown in the final seconds of the first half and two more in the first two-and-a-half minutes of the third quarter, taking advantage of an interception by South Carolina’s new starting quarterback, former walk-on Perry Orth.
South Carolina (1-2, 0-2) has lost its first two SEC games for the first time since 2008. It was the most points a Steve-Spurrier coached team has ever given up to Georgia.
