COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Connor Shaw threw two touchdown passes and ran for another, Ace Sanders had a dazzling 70-yard punt return touchdown and No. 6 South Carolina's defense dominated fifth-ranked Georgia in a 35-7 victory Saturday.

The Gamecocks (6-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) won their school-record 10th straight game with a performance that marked certainly marked them an Eastern Division front-runner -- and maybe showed they're capable of even more.

Those tests come soon as South Carolina travels to once-beaten LSU next week and then to Florida on Oct. 20. It'd be hard to pick against the Gamecocks after this one.

South Carolina grounded "Gurshall," holding Georgia's stellar freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall to 76 yards combined. The Bulldogs (5-1, 3-1) finished with 224 yards, less than half their season's average coming in.
