No. 7 Georgia and No. 9 Florida will test it on Saturday afternoon in a rival game that carries more than just bragging rights. Both teams get into the game with a conference loss each and every one would only eliminate the loser from the national title.
The bulldogs slicked their wounds last weekend after receiving a bowl lacquer two weeks ago in Baton Rouge by LSU. Quarterback Jake Fromm had one of his worst days as a starter in that loss, but has to overcome it because Gators heads the 1
60.1m passport conference. The gators were also gone last week, one week after storming back against Vanderbilt to send a 10-point win in Nashville. The ongoing game has Jordan Scarlett, Lamical Perine and quarterback Feleipe Franks, and is the core of Gator’s crime.
What to expect on Saturday afternoon on the river St. Johns River in Jacksonville?
Georgia: Fromm took much of the heat after the LSU loss, but the real problem that afternoon was coach Kirby Smart. Georgia has a complete game pack for real freshman quarterback Justin Fields that the staff did not come to, instead, Fromm chose to try to throw himself out of his funk. Expect to see a more accurate picture of the quarterback partnership this weekend as long as Smart learned his lesson. If that happens, it will open up the action in a variety of ways – especially for the stall with backrests led by D & # 39; Other Swift and Elijah Holyfield.
The driving force has been too late (which can be too much compliment) and gives up 5.16 meters per berry in October. But Gators does not make much of a downfield threat in the passing game. Because of that, Georgia expects to load the box, leave its secondary strength in defense – in one-on-one coverage, and dare Franks to hit them with their arms.
Florida: ] Scarlett and Perine appear to be better when gaming continues, meaning Florida is required to have a success early on the ground, work out game actions and then let the duo act as closers late in the game about gators can build a clue. If the running game opens appropriate paths, the versatile group of recipients that include Josh Hammond, Van Jefferson and Freddie Swain can fully benefit from the situation.
Defensively, Jachai Polite and Jabari Zuniga are rebel in front of, and must play their potential against the stubborn Georgia offensive line. Fromm rallied last time by LSU’s front seven, and there is no big difference between that group and Florida. If Florida can push Fromm, he can return to his LSU shape and get happy feet in his pocket.
It is always difficult to measure rivalry, but this will come down to what crime can find the most offensive balance. Both defenses will load to stop driving, so expect enough defenders in the box to fill a room. Because of that, it comes down to who you trust more in the matching game: Fromm or Franks? I’m going to side with the guy who led his team to the national title game in a pinch and only has a bad game on his resume in the past year and a half. It will be a fist all the time, and Dawgs will pull away late for a big victory and cover. Choose: Georgia -7.5
