College football schedule 2012: Georgia tries to right the ship against Florida

Andy Lyons

The Georgia Bulldogs meet the Florida Gators on Saturday in Jacksonville.

The Georgia Bulldogs have struggled in recent weeks, sandwiching a blowout loss at South Carolina between closer-than-expected wins against Tennessee and Kentucky. None of that will matter if the Bulldogs can defeat the Florida Gators when the teams meet Saturday in Jacksonville.

The Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) are No. 10 in this week's BCS rankings and will try to get back into the SEC East race. With a win over No. 2 Florida (7-0, 6-0), Georgia would control its destiny in the division. A Florida win would clinch the East title for the Gators.

Georgia Tech (3-4, 2-3 ACC) hosts BYU (4-4) Saturday with a chance to get its record back to .500. The Yellow Jackets snapped a three-game losing streak last Saturday with a 37-17 win against Boston College. The Tech offense faces a strong challenge from the Cougars, who are ranked fourth nationally in total defense (276.9 yards allowed per game) and eighth in scoring defense (14.0 points allowed per game).

Georgia State (1-7, 1-4 CAA) travels to face James Madison (5-2, 3-1) on Saturday. Georgia Southern (6-1, 5-1 SoCon) hits the road to square off with Chattanooga (4-3, 3-1).
