The Georgia Bulldogs enter their Week 8 Bye at 5-2 (3-2) before facing Florida in Jacksonville on Halloween.

If you like the Georgia Bulldogs and really love field goals, the Saturday’s 9-6 victory over the Missouri Tigers at Sanford Stadium did not disappoint. It was like watching 2011 Alabama vs. LSU, only with two teams that aren’t National Championship contenders in 2015.

The good news is that #8 Florida couldn’t hang on in Baton Rouge and dropped their first game of the season, falling to the #6 LSU Tigers, 35-28. Should the Georgia Bulldogs establish any form of offensive identity between now and Halloween, then UGA would be in the driver’s seat in the SEC East with a neutral site win over arch rival Florida.

The SEC East is one of the most underwhelming divisions in the Power 5, but I’ll take an SEC Championship Date any way I can at this point. Bring on the chaos, just like Sparty did against the Michigan punter to win in the Big House on Saturday.

It’s a good week for the Dawgs to have a bye. The defense is starting to play well again and some underclassmen are starting to figure it out in their offensive/defensive systems. Florida wasn’t suppose to beat the Georgia Bulldogs last year, so why not return the favor in 2015? Here are the SEC East Power Rankings entering Week 8.
