Georgia Bulldogs vs. Florida Gators: Live Scores, Highlights and Analysis
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.

Florida is last in turnover margin in the SEC. The offense and special teams are not doing the defense any favors.
Frankie Hammond catches a pass for about seven yards but appears to fumble on the play. The ruling on the field was down by contact. If the play is reversed the Florida defense will have to take over inside their 15 yard line.
Aaron Murray comes off the field hobbled and is being looked at on the sideline. Georgia will need their quarterback to come back and be effective if they will have any shot of making a comeback.
After a personal foul on Ronald Powell (the eighth penalty of the game for the Gators) Brantley and the offense will be backed up against their endzone for the second straight drive.
