Todd Gurley Speeds Ahead of Clemson and Heisman Hopeful Sets Record!

ATHENS, Ga. -- With legendary running back Herschel Walker and 92,745 others in attendance, Georgia had a chance to redeem its 38-35 loss to Clemson to open the 2013 season. It got a Walker-like effort out of junior Todd Gurley, plus a stout defensive performance, as the Bulldogs trounced the Tigers 45-21.

Georgia made the decision to conserve Gurley’s strength on a blazing hot day that reached 92 degrees (with over 80-percent humidity). He had just four offensive touches in the first half, as Mark Richt rationed Gurley’s carries like batteries during a zombie apocalypse. Gurley made the most of his chances, though, encapsulated by a bruising 19-yard run midway through the third quarter in which he broke one tackle, shook another defender off and dragged a third would-be tackler five yards.

The footprint is growing. In its biggest deal yet, ESPN has agreed to terms with Comcast Cable to carry the SEC Network. That means it will be available to 46 million households nationwide when the network launches Aug. 14. So far Comcast (20 million subscribers), Dish Network (14 million), Cox Communications (6 million), AT&T U-verse (5.7 million) and Google Fiber have signed on to carry SEC Network. DirecTV (20 million) and Time Warner Cable (11 million) are still in discussions but do not have deals done.

Comcast offers cable throughout Kentucky, though not in Louisville in Lexington, where Time Warner Cable is the provider. According to Sports Business Journal, the channel's rate card is at $1.40 per subscriber per month within the SEC's 11-state footprint and $0.25 per month outside of it. .

USATODAY Cox signs up to carry new SEC Network As part of its agreement with ESPN, Comcast will also make SEC Network available on its digital platforms, including the Xfinity TV Go app and website, WatchESPN and, with the ability to watch the network live and on-demand any time on any device.
