·4 min read

No. 1 Georgia (7-0) is set to take on Florida (4-3) on Saturday.

Both teams are coming off a bye week. UGA’s last contest was a 30-13 win over No. 11 Kentucky and Florida’s was a 49-42 loss to LSU.

This is the first time since 2017 the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party isn’t a top-10 matchup.

Florida has bragging rights after a 44-28 victory in last year’s matchup, and the top-ranked Bulldogs look to grab the title back in 2021.

Series History

The University of Georgia leads the Florida Gators 53-44-2 in the overall series between the two rivals. The series began in 1904, but Florida didn’t score their first points in the series until 1926. The Dawgs shut out the Gators in the five games of the series.

In 2020, Florida got its first win in the series since 2016 with a 44-28 win that slotted the Gators for an SEC Championship bid.

Georgia got beat soundly by the Gators in 2020, and I don’t think the Bulldogs have forgotten that bad taste in their mouths.

UGA is 11-0 since that day in Jacksonville last year.

These are two very different teams in 2021. This Georgia defense may be one of the best units we’ve ever seen.

The Bulldogs are giving up 6.6 points per game (1st), 3.57 yards per play (1st) and 208 total yards per game (1st). And trust me, the stats that show UGA’s dominance on that side of the ball don’t stop there.

Florida enters the matchup ranked ninth in total offense, averaging 501 yards per game. Where the Gators suffer is turnover margin. Florida maintains a minus-7 differential, compared to Georgia’s plus-3.

UGA will be getting back multiple key players that have missed time with injuries.

Starting corner Ameer Speed, starting safety and interception leader Chris Smith and slot receiver Arian Smith, the fastest player on the Bulldogs’ roster, are expected to be back versus the Gators, along with J.T. Daniels at quarterback.

I expect some crafty play-calling from UF’s Dan Mullen, but with Florida’s issues in the passing game and Georgia’s dominance on defense – paired with the increasingly lethal attack from Todd Monken’s offense – I don’t see a way the Gators can keep up this season.

Georgia wins and covers the two touchdown line: Dawgs 38, Florida 13.
