Forida and Georgia will enter "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" in Jacksonville, Fla., both looking to get their seasons back on track. 

Just two games ago, both teams were sitting with one loss each and still in the chase for the national championship. Now, they are just 4-3 and simply hoping to crack the BCS Top 25.

Both will be well rested for this contest after coming off of a bye week.

The bye gave the Bulldogs time to stew over their 31-27 loss to Vanderbilt, while Florida has been left to wonder how Missouri torched its proud defense for 36 last time on the field. 

This will all create a sense of desperation around this already fierce rivalry.

Key Storyline: Will Florida get its defense back on track? 

Jamie Squire/Getty Images

The Gators offense has been struggling all season. Florida is 103rd in the nation in points scored. However, the Gators were still thriving on the strength of an excellent defense. 

Florida's defense withstood a test against LSU two games ago. While the Gators lost the game, they allowed just 17 points. 

However, in their last effort, Missouri went for 500 yards of offense—205 of which came on the ground. 

Meanwhile, Georgia's offense has slumped a bit in the current two-game losing streak, but the Bulldogs have still put up at least 26 points in each of the last two contests.

Florida is going to need to bring its best effort on defense if the Gators want any chance of winning this one.

Prediction: Georgia 27, Florida 17

This is a tough game to predict. However, Florida's slipping defense is the key to me siding with Georgia.

While Georgia's defense has struggled, Florida has had a hard time scoring on anyone. This will open the door for Georgia to quickly get the ball back and wear out the Florida defense.
