Last year, the Georgia Bulldogs got the better of the Florida Gators, will they be able to repeat their 2011 performance this year?

The No. 2 Florida Gators and No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs face off this weekend for the 89th time in their storied rivalry this Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla.

The game once known as "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" will be as intense as ever this year as both teams come in with SEC Championship aspirations. The winner of this game will undoubtedly have the inside track toward winning the SEC East.

The Gators enter the weekend unbeaten at 7-0 and ranked No. 2 in the BCS standings for the second week in a row. They will be playing for much more than pride as a victory will keep them in contention for the BCS Championship.

While the Bulldogs come into the weekend boasting a 24-20 win last year and a 47-40-2 lead in the rivalry overall, Florida still has an impressive 18-4 record (7-3 in the past 10 meetings) against the Dawgs dating back to 1990.

Both teams have a lot at stake in this game.

Here is a look at five X-factors that may have a huge impact on this game.
