2. Q: Florida vs. Georgia is all that matters in the East, right?
If might seem boring, and Kentucky fans might have a complaint after last year, but … yeah, sort of.
Florida vs. Georgia on November 2nd will have something to say about the SEC East title in some way, but it’ll take something extraordinary for the winner to not be in the SEC Championship for the fifth straight season.
Florida has beaten Vanderbilt five times in a row, and Georgia has won two straight over the Commodores and four in the last five.
2009 was the last time Kentucky beat Georgia, and before last year’s win, the Cats went decades without beating Florida.
Tennessee? The Vols have to show they can at least hang with Georgia again after getting blown out the last two seasons by a combined score of 79-12, and beating Florida is a must after losing 13 in the last 14 in the series.
South Carolina has a nice team, but it has to go to Athens, and has lost to Florida three times in the last four years.
Missouri is absolutely good enough to beat either Florida or Georgia, or both, but it’s currently ineligible to play for the SEC title.
So while the Gators and Dawgs could absolutely lose to anyone in the division, and each one has some brutal games against the West to deal with – Florida plays Auburn and at LSU, and Georgia gets at Auburn and Texas A&M – but …
Yeah, Florida vs. Georgia on November 2nd will almost certainly be for the SEC East title.
