In a week where there are already ten games postponed or cancelled, it is nice to know that we will have some normalcy as one of the SEC's biggest rivalries heads to Jacksonville to fight for supremacy in the SEC East. Each year since 1992, with one exception, the Georgia Bulldogs and Florida Gators have met in Jacksonville Florida. Even though the Bulldogs are the "home team", they are about five and a half hours away from the Jacksonville Jaguars stadium while the Gators are just over an hour away in Gainesville.
Not that it will matter much with a much diminished crowd due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But we still anticipate a tremendous game between these historic rivals. Georgia has won the last three between these two but only won 24-17 last year. As a matter of fact, since 2008 each team has won in three year intervals. Florida won from 2008-2010, Georgia from 2011-2013, Florida from 2014-2016 and finally Georgia from 2017-2019. So recent history says Florida is going to win this game.
While these teams have similar records (Florida 3-1, Georgia 4-1) and seem like a close matchup on paper, Georgia should be recognized as the better team. Their only loss is to Alabama who is almost guaranteed a spot in the SEC Championship game representing the West. Florida lost to a Texas A&M team they were favored against who got absolutely destroyed by that very same Alabama team. These two have a long way to go if they want to compete for the crown of this conference but this game will go a long way of bridging this gap.
