Georgia Bulldogs-Florida Gators Preview

It's here again. The Georgia-Florida Classic. The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. The 5-2 Bulldogs take on the 4-3 Gators. Georgia had the momentum going heading into their bye week on a five game winning streak. Meanwhile, Florida has lost three straight heading into this game. They lost 38-10 to Alabama, 41-11 to LSU, and 17-6 to Auburn. They Gators haven't been the same team since QB Tim Tebow left.
Georgia QB Aaron Murray

Florida QB John Brantley
The Bulldogs are red hot right now and so is QB Aaron Murray. I expect him to have a huge game on Saturday and lead the Dawgs to victory. I can also see freshman RB Isaiah Crowell having a big game as he ranks 4th in the SEC with 608 rushing yards. WR Malcolm Mitchell is questionable. He has been Aaron Murray's go to WR with 25 catches for 238 yards and 3 TDs. TE Orson Charles has also been a huge factor with 4 TDs on the season. 

Someone on defense that I know can break out again this week is CB Brandon Boykin. He is a lockdown corner and is a dangerous weapon on kick-returns and everywhere else on special teams. I want to see freshman LB Ray Drew finally get it together and play like the player everyone thought he would be.

Florida QB John Brantley (ankle injury) is expected to play on Saturday. This injury resulted in freshman QB Jacoby Brissett getting the start in the last two weeks. He has not performed well at all and resulted in a blowout loss at LSU and a loss at Auburn. They also rotated QB Trey Burton. The Gators look to get their rushing attack going with the rotation at RB with Jeffery Demps and Chris Rainey. Rainey also plays a lot of WR. 

Georgia and Florida are going to be playing hard-knock, SEC football all game long. One of the best rivalries in college football is going to be renewed again. I think the Dawgs will come out with the win and avenge a tough overtime loss to the Gators last year. I expect both teams to put a lot of points on the board. Both offenses will put on a show and I believe both teams will find a way to make eachother's defenses vulnerable. Out of every team on Georgia's schedule, I want us to beat Florida the most. They are every UGA fan's most despised team. Keep on checking out my blogs and share it to a friend or family member and expect my next blog soon. So until then, GO DAWGS!!!-Yuriy

  1. Great analysis. The Dawgs definitely need this game, for more than 1 reason. A rivalry isn't really a rivalry when 1 team is winning all the time. They also need it to take control of the SEC East. If Mark Richt is going to keep his job, he needs an SEC Title and a win against Florida.

    Although Florida has lost 3 in a row, look at the teams they played. LSU and Bama are the consensus 1 & 2 teams in the nation, and Auburn was the National Champion last year. Auburn is down, but still a very good team.

    I look for a shoot out, with the Dawgs winning 34-30. GO DAWGS
