COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Get ready for the season's first Eastern Division showdown in the Southeastern Conference when No. 5 Georgia travels to No. 6 South Carolina this week.

The matchup between the 5-0 teams should again go a long way in settling who will represent the division at the Georgia Dome in the SEC title game Dec. 1.

Young Georgia tailback Todd Gurley leads the league in rushing and has made the sort of impact Gamecocks junior runner Marcus Lattimore did two years ago. Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney are both defensive forces this season. And don't overlook the sidelines where Georgia coach Mark Richt and South Carolina's Steve Spurrier again face off.
