The Florida Gators are back. Yes, they did lose one game to the Georgia Bulldogs (and some would say the Gators beat themselves), but there is no other team in the FBS that has a resume of work that comes close to that of the Florida Gators in 2012.
The Gators have defeated four teams that are ranked in the BCS top 12:
- @Texas A&M (currently No. 9 in the BCS. Oh, by the way, they defeated at-the-time No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa)
- LSU (currently No. 7 in the BCS)
- South Carolina (currently No. 12, but just defeated No. 11 Clemson. And, the OBC, aka Ole Ball Coach, devoured the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs earlier in the season)
- Florida State (currently No. 10 in the BCS, but not unlike their conference partner Clemson, will drop out when the new BCS rankings are released on Sunday, November 25, 2012)
The Gator Nation has every reason to be very happy after expectations for the season have been greatly surpassed. Some will look to the game in Jacksonville, when Florida succumbed to the Georgia Bulldogs, as a black eye on this year's schedule, but they shouldn't. Georgia is a very good team that very well may end up representing the SEC in the BCS title game.
Here is an overview of the 2012 season as well as a prediction at the end of who the Gators will face and where when bowl time arrives.
