Gametime 2011 – Georgia vs. Florida

Florida-Georgia 2011On Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs (5-2, 4-1 SEC) travel to Jacksonville to face the Florida Gators (4-3, 2-3 SEC). The game will be televised by CBS at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Both teams enjoyed an open date this past weekend in preparation for the latest edition of “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” or, if you are more PC, the “Florida vs. Georgia Football Classic.”

This will be the first time in the 107 year history of the series that both teams are off the week prior. Georgia comes in on a five-game winning streak while Florida has lost three straight.

Last year, the Gators also lost three straight heading into Jacksonville. But the Gators had an open date, came out rested and beat the Dawgs 34-31 in overtime.

Georgia and Florida’s first meeting was in Macon, GA on Oct. 15, 1904. The Bulldogs won that game 52-0. The Bulldogs lead the overall series 47-40-2, but the Gators have taken over the series since 1990, winning 18 of the last 21 games.

Although Mark Richt has dominated Georgia’s biggest rival Georgia Tech (9-1) and fared well against rivals Auburn (6-4) and Tennessee (7-4), he’s only 2-8 against Florida. That needs to change beginning this Saturday.

Inside the numbers:

  • Georgia is 47-40-2 against Florida.

    aj mclellan-Typical Georgia education right there. Something tells me he probably spent a solid 30 minutes typing that out, sounding out each and every word in a redneck southern twang, while Mommy and Daddy praised his ingenuity and stamped another of his “artistic” crayon drawings to the fridge again. Stay away from the cocktail party and stick to the milk and cookies. UF 27 UGA 14

    I dunno about all this crap trash talk, but GO DAWGS!!! You guys really don’t have to insult each other to be a fan of your team. It’s a shame that ya’ll think your gonna make your team better because you insult the other guys. GATORHATERTOO. I have many good friends who are AU fans and blah blah blah and while I won’t call them names, I also won’t go watch a game at their house.

  11. This will be a good game. I’m a Bulldog fan for sure but am aware that FU has Brantley back. And Georgia will be playing without its best WReciever this game due to a pulled hamstring during mondays practice. Hope we pull the “W” for this game. Go Dawgs!!
