The Florida Gators have looked great over the last few weeks. They destroyed South Carolina last week on the strength of some big turnovers. Now, they head to Jacksonville to take on a Georgia team that desperately needs to win this game. The team that wins this one will have control over the SEC East. So can Georgia picks itself up after playing poorly against Kentucky last week? That will be a difficult chore against a Florida defense that is getting better each week.
Florida did not move the ball all that well last week, but they did not need to. They scored on defense, played great special teams, and generally controlled the line of scrimmage. Florida was physically dominant over a South Carolina team that had been playing pretty well. Florida ran the ball very well once again, but they did not throw it at an SEC level. If they can keep up their level of play, they should be good to go against Georgia this week.
The Bulldogs looked great until they ran into South Carolina three weeks ago. They got run over in Columbia, as South Carolina scored three early touchdowns to take control of the game. Georgia then took a week off before nearly giving up the game against Kentucky. The fact is that UGA does not look like its old self, and this is a bad time to run into that sort of problem. Florida is almost a touchdown favorite in this game, so at least a few people think Georgia is in for a tough time.
What will happen in this one? It is always a crazy game when these two teams get together in Jacksonville. Florida will have to recover emotionally from a huge win against South Carolina. It can sometimes be difficult to play great for two straight weeks. Florida has a huge advantage in this game on the line of scrimmage. If they are able to get after Aaron Murray in this game, they will control the tempo. If Murray is able to have success in the air, the Bulldogs have a chance to pull a big time upset.
