It has been a few years since we got one of these that matters. Both of these teams have one loss so they might be on the outside looking in but whoever wins suddenly looks playoff possible, especially if it is Georgia.
These teams profile very similarly too with stingy defenses and offenses that take advantages of opportunities as opposed to dominating. Whichever teams makes the fewest mistakes wins.
If the Gators win here there is little stopping them from running the table and playing in the SEC title game. That feels a little too soon for this group but Dan Mullen is looking like an ever smarter higher each week.
Florida has balance on offense but that is mostly because they run it pretty well. Mullen would like to do more in the passing game but with the players he has that part of the offense is unpredictable. Big play one moment, questionable throw the next.
The defense is one of the best in college football, yielding only 16ppg, and that is after giving up a surprising 27 points to Vanderbilt. They are going to have to be stout in all phases to beat Georgia, who I think has more talent.
It wasn’t just that Georgia lost at LSU, they were outclassed that day and a defense that has been so stout just was outmuscled. It was a bad look for a team that was this close to winning it all this year. Though it is a mostly different team really.
Jake Fromm might not be the most physically imposing guy but he can make all the throws and makes few mistakes. He has been better as a sophomore which is what you want to see. DeAndre Switft can score from anywhere on the field but it has been Elijah Holyfield that has been the better of the two backs.
Repeating last year’s defensive dominance was always going to be tough. They are posting good numbers across the board but it is more like top 20 instead of top three. The stars are not there like they were last season.

This is the game of the week and you gotta love the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. The Dawgs are the easy favourite with advantages on most spots on offense. The defenses might be about even.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Georgia -6.5
I think this one might flip back and forth between the current number and 7. It probably won’t go above it though or else you might get a flood of Gator money. At one score you can feel good about backing Georgia.
This one is going to be rough in the trenches for sure. Both teams are going to make each other earn it. The game turns on Fromm being able to make a few key throws and some good play calling by Georgia.
