NO. 1 FLORIDA VS. GEORGIA

KICKOFF: 3:30 p.m.; Jacksonville

Municipal Stadium, Jacksonville

RECORDS: Florida 7-0 (5-0 SEC);

Georgia 4-3 (3-2)

TV/RADIO: CBS, Ch. 10/970 AM

NEED TO KNOW: With a win against Georgia today and a South Carolina loss to Tennessee, Florida would clinch its third SEC Championship Game appearance in four years. ... The Gators need to get their struggling offense back on track against a Bulldogs defense that has looked shaky at times this season. ... Florida has only come away with touchdowns in two of its past 15 trips to the red zone and QB Tim Tebow (two interceptions against Mississippi Sate last week) has been uncharacteristically careless with the football. ... Georgia has a big-play threat in receiver A.J. Green. The sophomore has 41 catches this season for 682 yards and six touchdowns, and more than twice as many catches as the Bulldogs second-leading receiver (Michael Moore, 19 catches). ... Florida coach Urban Meyer is 13-1 in rivalry games against Georgia, Tennessee and Florida State since arriving in Gainesville in 2005.
