On Saturday, the Florida Gators will enter Tuscaloosa as eight-point underdogs to the No. 1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

The matchup will not only have major implications on the SEC, but also on how the teams will fare in their bid for a BCS championship game spot, particularly because in the past two contests between the teams, the winner has gone on to win the national title.

The matchup is one for the ages. Between a 24-game streak for Florida and a 28-game streak for Alabama, the two teams combine for 52 consecutive regular season wins. One of these streaks must come to an end.

For the Florida Gators, this game is an opportunity for revenge. Alabama destroyed Florida in the SEC Championship game last season, robbing Tim Tebow of the opportunity of winning a third BCS Championship.

For the Crimson Tide, this game is an opportunity to strengthen their argument for a BCS Championship game title berth in case they lose another game later on.

Here are the six things to watch for when the Florida Gators take on the Crimson Tide.
