Florida-Georgia: The Game of the Week

Dusty FloydCorrespondent IOctober 27, 2008

The SEC East title is pretty much on the line with this game. Both of the teams have a 4-1 conference record, so the winner of this game will take a one-game lead in the SEC East and hold a head-to-head tiebreak if the winner ends up losing to one more SEC opponent.

Florida is very excited to get back at Georgia for embarrassing them by sending all of their players on to the field to celebrate a first quarter touchdown, knowing they would get flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

That got the Bulldogs pumped for the rest of the game, and they went on to win the game 42-30.

Tim Tebow played as he was expected to the whole season against Kentucky last week in their 63-5 rout of the Wildcats. He had four total touchdowns and over 200 total yards.

He will have to play even better than that to upset the number six-ranked Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia wins by an average of two touchdowns and extra points in their games, which is a very tough thing to do while having five SEC opponents on their schedule.

Georgia hopes to make it back to the SEC championship game so they can most likely get another shot at number two Alabama. The Crimson Tide was destroying Georgia at halftime 31-0, but Georgia came back to make the score respectable at 41-30.

Florida's only loss was a 31-30 upset to the Ole Miss Rebels. Florida had an extra point blocked at the end of that game to finish off the disappointing loss.

The Florida vs. Georgia game is always a big rivalry, and there will be a lot on the line in this game, including a probable trip to the SEC championship game. Stars Knowshon Moreno and Tim Tebow had better play tough for their teams, or else they will end up having a very disappointing season.
