CFN SEC Preview 2019: Still The Best Conference ... By Far


Game Of The Year

Florida vs. Georgia (in Jacksonville), Nov. 2

It’s the first time these two have played in November since a Florida win in 2014 – welcome to the SEC East Championship.

The Gators have to go to LSU and deal with Auburn, Miami, Kentucky, Tennessee and South Carolina before this, but they have the team to at least be 7-1 before rolling into Jacksonville. Do that, beat Georgia, and the sky is the limit – and that includes the College Football Playoff.


Florida needs to hope and pray if can have just one loss before facing the Bulldogs. Georgia needs to expect and demand to be unbeaten at this point, With Tennessee the toughest road game, and with Notre Dame, South Carolina and Kentucky at home. Win, and there can be a loss somewhere to – maybe -Auburn on the road or Texas A&M at home and still be okay.
