The Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party will take place this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET. No, I will not recognize the name change to the Florida vs. Georgia football classic (or Georgia vs. Florida football classic, depending on the year).
The name of the contest is not the only fact that is disputed in this rivalry. If you ask Georgia, the series has been played 89 times with Georgia leading the series 47-40-2. If you ask the Gators, the series has been played 88 times with Georgia leading 46-40-2. The disputed game is a 52-0 win for Georgia in 1904, the problem with that is Florida did not officially recognize their football team until 1906.
The Florida-Georgia game will pit the 4-3 Gators against the 5-2 Bulldogs, and will mark the first time in the series that both teams are coming off of a bye week before the matchup.
Florida comes into the game trying to stop a three-game losing streak, with Georgia attempting to continue their current five-game winning streak.
Stay tuned as I will be live blogging my thoughts of the game, score updates and general commentary throughout the day tomorrow.
