Georgia will try to take control of the SEC East against Florida on Saturday.

Sam Greenwood

The Georgia Bulldogs and Florida Gators renew their annual rivalry Saturday when they meet at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla.

Georgia (6-1, 4-1 SEC) hasn't played well lately, sandwiching a blowout loss at South Carolina between closer-than-expected wins vs. Tennessee and Kentucky. However, if the Bulldogs can find a way to upset the Gators, they will control their destiny in the SEC East race.

Florida (7-0, 6-0) is trying to wrap up its first East title since 2009. The Gators are No. 2 in this week's BCS rankings, and will earn a trip to their 11th SEC Championship Game with a win.

Saturday's game will come down to which team can dictate the tempo. Georgia and Florida are nearly polar opposites, with the Bulldogs ranking third in the SEC in scoring offense (39.6 points per game) and the Gators ranking second in scoring defense (12.1 points allowed per game). Georgia ranks eighth in the conference on defense, allowing 24.1 points per game, and Florida ranks ninth on offense, scoring 30.1 points per game.

Date, time: Saturday, Oct. 27, 3:30 p.m. ET

Location: EverBank Field, Jacksonville, Fla.


Odds: Georgia enters Saturday as a seven-point underdog.
