South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier knows firsthand that freshmen running backs can make a huge impact. He saw it two years ago with Gamecocks star Marcus Lattimore and hopes things don't repeat themselves Saturday with Georgia freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. Saturday's game could be a track meet when the fifth-ranked Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) and the sixth-ranked Gamecocks (5-0, 3-0) square off at Williams-Brice Stadium. Lattimore ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns last week in a 38-17 win at Kentucky. Gurley and Marshall combined for 294 yards and five TDs rushing in Georgia's 51-44 shootout against Tennessee. Lattimore opened plenty of eyes in the SEC two years ago when he ran for 182 yards in South Carolina's 17-6 victory over Georgia.
