Athens, GA - The University of Georgia volleyball team will continue its current road swing this weekend traveling to face South Carolina and top-ranked Florida.

Georgia (10-9, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) enters play this weekend looking to snap a three-match losing streak and the Bulldogs first crack at getting back in the win column will come at South Carolina (4-13, 1-6 SEC) on Friday. First serve between the Bulldogs and Gamecocks is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET and live stats from the Volleyball Competition Facility will be available on www.gamecocksonline.com.

In the all-time Georgia-South Carolina series, the Bulldogs hold 41-16 advantage. Last year, the two schools split the season series with Georgia winning the most recent meeting on the road in Columbia, 3-0 (27-25, 28-26, 28-26). The Gamecocks won the earlier of the two 2009 meetings in Athens, 3-0 (25-17, 25-21, 25-23).

After the tilt with South Carolina, the Georgia squad will travel to Gainesville, Fla., to face the No. 1-ranked Florida Gators (14-1, 7-0 SEC) on Sunday. First serve from the Stephen C. O'Connell Center is slated for 1:30 p.m. with the match being televised regionally on Sun TV. Live stats for the UGA-UF tilt will be available on www.gatorzone.com.

In the all-time Georgia-Florida series, the Gators hold a 50-9 advantage including a pair of 3-0 victories last season. The Bulldogs last win the series came in 2008 in Athens by a score of 3-2. That victory ended a 45-match winning streak in series by UF.

This weekend's two matches will conclude a four-match road swing for the Bulldogs, who return to the Ramsey Student Center the following weekend to play host to LSU (Oct. 22) and Arkansas (Oct. 24).
