(4) Georgia over (5) Florida
Sam Khan Jr: With an improved Jacob Eason (and a Florida defense sans several key starters from 2016), the Bulldogs win the Cocktail Party. Georgia 24, Florida 19.
Greg Ostendorf: I know. Back-to-back SEC East champs. But the Gators still don’t have a quarterback. Maybe that changes this fall. But at this point, I’m rolling with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Georgia 24, Florida 13
Alex Scarborough: Jacob Eason had a Hail Mary get erased against Tennessee, but that doesn’t happen this time around as the sophomore QB makes his mark in the Florida-Georgia rivalry. Georgia 28, Florida 27
Prediction 2017 JAX : ESPN has Georgia # 5 in The SEC and Florida # 4 of 14 SEC teams in ESPN’s 2017 Power Rankings in football this up-coming season and 3 of the 5 choose UGA over Florida.
