Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Connor Shaw is 18-3 as USC's starting quarterback - he hopes to go 19-3 in what will be his first start at Sanford Stadium.

Shaw is a native of Flowery Branch, Georgia and says he was never really a Bulldog fan growing up in the Peach State.

"I was actually a big Florida fan when Coach Spurrier was there," said Shaw.

"I've been looking forward to this one for a while. It's going to be exciting for us Georgia boys. We all know the importance of this game, so it's going to be an exciting game for us."
