This weekend offers plenty of marquee games, but I choose to focus on the two top 10 matchups. The first being the Florida Gators (-6.5) v the Georgia Bulldogs. I know the Cocktail Party is in Jacksonville, but are the Gators really a touchdown favorite over the team from Athens.
Maybe they are as Tim Tebow leads a balanced offense that is putting up almost 200 yards both rushing (196.0 ypg) and passing (214.3 ypg). The defense is among the nation’s elite in allowing just 11.9 ppg this year. The pass defense has been particularly stingy, giving up a mere 170.7 ypg. Florida has thrived in terms of forcing turnovers, with a +10 margin.
But give me the points and a heavy dose of Knowshon Moreno. Sprinkle in a little Matt Stafford to AJ Green and Mohamed Massaquoi and you have a tough Georgia offense. Look for a big play from Darryl Gamble (2 INT’s for TD last week against LSU) as this game is a field goal game all the way.
Tailgating sure must be fun in Jacksonville this weekend. Just ask these ladies! And look out for plenty of jorts. (Pt 2 later today)
