MORE THAN A GAME
The game may only be four quarters, but the Georgia-Florida experience lasts all week. We’ve packed the week with events for every type of fan. Whether you’re a Dawg or a Gator–these events will get you fired up before kickoff! As RV City opens at 8am Tuesday, the excitement is already starting to grow!
Many stories will be written, published and broadcast on the Florida-Georgia game and rivalry in the coming days, and while they’ll likely focus on slightly different points and perspectives, all of them, including this one, will reflect one underlying understanding — even in a rivalry this old and grand, this edition is bigger than most.
It’s only Tuesday, but by now you know the stakes: A win for Georgia means the Bulldogs are in the driver’s seat in the SEC East, leaving only upstart Kentucky with a chance, and that chance a long odds opportunity, even at Kroger Field. A win also eliminates the stench of Georgia’s 20-point loss to LSU in Baton Rouge, hands the Bulldogs a signature win in 2018 and puts Kirby Smart’s evolving death star of a program back in the Playoff conversation as the committee meets for the first time Sunday.
A win for Florida, and Dan Mullen and the Gators are in the Playoff conversation instead, regardless of whether they get the help needed from Georgia (or Missouri or Tennessee) to win the East. A Florida win, and a season that began with a new coaching staff simply hoping to lay the foundation for a successful future suddenly becomes about seeking a Playoff berth and a championship, dream stuff for a program that has spent most of this decade as an afterthought lost in the college football wilderness. Only a year ago at this very game, Georgia blew Florida off the field 42-7, the final whimper from an in-over-its-head, never-felt-right Gators coaching staff in a game that was all but over after the opening five minutes.
