Ah, the big one. The Gators travel to Tuscaloosa to face the Crimson Tide who have won 28 consecutive regular season games and the past 18 games overall.
Florida looks to avenge the thrashing Bama put on them last year, when No. 2 Alabama walloped No. 1 Florida like nobody thought was possible, 32-13.
UF doesn't have Tebow anymore, and outside of the Kentucky game last week, it's been obvious that's been bad news for Florida's offense.
Bama, who won last week at Arkansas, plays host, looking to win yet again at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Florida's defense has been one of the best in the nation, but their offense might not take off on the road struggling like they are (outside of Trey Burton).
This is no Kentucky. This is Alabama. I expect a low-scoring game because of these factors.
Game Prediction: Under the lights at Bryant-Denny Stadium, this game will be a dandy.
In the first quarter, Alabama and Florida trade field goals for a 3-3 tie. In the second, after another FG for Alabama, the Tide's offense gets the ball, and ten plays later, Mark Ingram is in the end zone, giving Alabama a 13-3 lead over Florida.
Bama gets the ball right before halftime, and they nail another FG as time expires to take a 16-3 lead over Florida into the locker room.
In the second half, Bama's offense moves again, but once again is limited to a field goal. Alabama now leads 19-3 in the third quarter.
Here comes Florida.They sustain a drive, and before the quarter's over, John Brantley finds Trey Burton in the end zone for a Florida touchdown. They go for two and get it, cutting Alabama's lead to just eight, 19-11. But in the fourth, Bama moves the ball, chews clock, and tacks on another FG to make their lead 11, 22-11.
Florida comes back down the field, but John Brantley is picked off by Mark Barron in the end zone. I'm not picking against the Tide two weeks in a row. Alabama wins!
Alabama 22, Florida 11
