A November South Carolina-Georgia game is extremely rare.
Saturday's game between Kirby Smart's Bulldogs and Will Muschamp's Gamecocks is the latest in the season the teams have played since 1939, when the game was played on Nov. 18.
The border rivalry often lands in September, and it is almost always played before the late-October Florida-Georgia game.
A memorable late-season South Carolina-Georgia game was played on Nov. 1, 1980, when Herschel Walker and the undefeated Bulldogs beat George Rodgers and the Gamecocks 13-10 in Athens.
Proof of how times have changed in college football: The 1980 game was Georgia's eighth of the season _ and it was their first TV appearance. Keith Jackson and the ABC crew broadcast the game from Sanford Stadium.
