Challenges for Florida

Florida is much improved under Dan Mullen but they are going to have their hands full on Saturday. This Georgia team has had two weeks to think about a loss to LSU. Florida is probably a year away from being able to challenge a team like Georgia.

Challenges for Georgia

It probably has been very hard on the Bulldogs, but an off week after the LSU loss was probably a good thing. Otherwise, the Gators would have been likely to spring a trap game on the Bulldogs. Georgia just needs to be Georgia against Florida. Unleash its stable of running backs against the Gators and open up passing opportunities for Jake Fromm.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 3:30 pm CT (4:30 ET) and can be seen on CBS.
