Georgia-Florida is not just about a party. It is a big game that will be nationally televised on CBS. Kickoff is at 3:30 PM on October 29.

The Gators come into the game with a 5-1 record (3-1 SEC) and in first place in the SEC Eastern division. They last played against Missouri in Gainesville, a 40-14 win which saw the return of quarterback Luke Del Rio (son of former Jaguars and current Raiders Head Coach Jack Del Rio) from injury. They are led by a strong defense that ranks in the top five in most national categories and scored two defensive touchdowns against Mizzou.

If Florida wins the rest of their SEC games, they would win the division and play in the SEC Championship game in Atlanta. However, Georgia represents the start of a tough string of games for Florida that includes road dates with Arkansas, LSU (moved due to Hurricane Matthew), and Florida State.

The Bulldogs are limping into the game with a 4-3 record (2-3 SEC), including their most recent upset loss at home against Vanderbilt 17-16.

Georgia is led by freshman quarterback Jacob Eason and talented running back Nick Chubb. They are in the first season of Head Coach Kirby Smart's tenure. A win against Florida would help right the ship and put the Bulldogs in position for a strong run to end the season and a high profile bowl game.


The history of the game dates back to 1904, according to Georgia. That's when a team from Athens beat UF's predecessor 52-0. However, the modern University of Florida did not even open up in Gainesville until 1906 and the Gators claim the rivalry began in 1915.

According to Georgia, the Bulldogs hold a 50-42-2 lead in the series while Florida recognizes only 49 of those Georgia victories.

For Bulldog fans, perhaps the most memorable game of the rivalry came in 1980. The Bulldogs trailed the Gators late in the game 21-20 and had the ball on their own seven yard line when Lindsay Scott caught a Buck Belue pass at the 25 yard line, then raced down the field for a 93 yard game winning touchdown that spurned the most famous call in Georgia announcer Larry Munson's career, "Run Lindsay Run".

For Gator fans, perhaps the greatest contest in the rivalry's history was spotlighted by a timeout. In 1993, the Gators led 33-26 in a steady rain that turned the field into slop. Georgia QB Eric Zeier threw the apparent game tying touchdown pass with five seconds left. However, just before the snap, Gators DB Anthone Lott called timeout, nullifying the play. The Gators would stop Georgia on the game's final play and go on to win the SEC for Coach Steve Spurrier.
