Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Florida Gators
The eyes of the college football world will be focused on Gainesville this weekend, as the 12th-ranked Florida Gators and third-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide will duke it out in what promises to be a tremendous SEC battle. Alabama has won all four of its games thus far by 16 points or more, including victories over Penn State and Arkansas. Last weekend’s 38-14 romp over the Razorbacks in the conference opener was impressive to say the least, but there is no doubt that Florida represents the toughest test to date for head coach Nick Saban and company.
Will Muschamp, the first-year head coach at Florida, has yet to taste defeat, as the team has won all four of its games by double figures. In fact, three of the four have come by 38 or more points, the lone exception being a 10-point triumph over Tennessee. Last weekend, the Gators stomped SEC foe Kentucky by a 48-10 final, their 25th consecutive win over the Wildcats. Alabama owns a 22-14 series advantage over Florida, and the Tide crushed the Gators by a 31-6 final last season.
Clearly the biggest challenge for the Tide is tonight but we think they are up to the challenge even in the swamp.
