The Georgia Bulldogs enter their annual neutral site rivalry with the Florida Gators as a 2.5-point underdog. Anything and everything goes in one of the most hostile rivalries in college football.

As is tradition, the Georgia Bulldogs will play the Florida Gators at EverBank Field in Jacksonville on the last Saturday of October. This year it falls on Halloween and Verne and Gary will call the game as part of the CBS SEC Game of the Week at 3:30 PM ET.

Week 8 was not a great week for the SEC East, going 1-3 with only Vanderbilt getting a win last weekend. Vanderbilt topped Missouri for their first SEC win since November of 2013. Tennessee lost its 9th straight game to Alabama. Kentucky got beaten badly by Mississippi State in Starkville. Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina all had byes.

Once again, the SEC East is clearly the inferior of the two divisions in the Southeastern Conference. Entering the final week of October, only the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators have a realistic chance to win the East. Only Florida has a snowball’s chance to make the 2nd Annual College Football Playoff out of the East.

It seems like just yesterday the Georgia Bulldogs were taking care of business against the ULM Warhawks on September 3rd, but here we are nearly two-thirds done with the 2015 NCAA Regular Season.

Things are starting to settle down a bit the SEC East, as this was a much easier power ranking to assemble than in week’s past. I wish I could say the same for the NFC…Without further ado, here are the SEC East Power Rankings heading into Week 9.
