The Georgia Bulldogs will play their biggest rival tomorrow down in Jacksonville on Halloween. There is no game bigger on UGA’s slate than Georgia-Florida this year.

Georgia enters tomorrow’s date with Florida at 5-2 (3-2) still in control of their own destiny. Florida has a slightly better record at 6-1 (4-1) and are the #11 team in the nation. Though it is still October, this year’s Georgia-Florida game is essentially the SEC East Championship Game.

Only the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators have two or fewer SEC losses on the year in the SEC East. A win for Georgia and the Dawgs would hold the precious tiebreaker over the Gators. Should UGA knock off both Kentucky and Auburn after defeating Florida, your Georgia Bulldogs will play in Atlanta for the 2015 SEC Championship.

On the other hand should the Gators chomp UGA to bits like they did last year, Florida should run away with the SEC East. The Gators would hold the tiebreakers over Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Unless Florida unrealistically drops their final SEC games to both South Carolina and Vanderbilt, they’ll play for a Conference Championship if they take care of the Dawgs on Saturday.

All the pressure is on Florida in this game, since the Georgia Bulldogs’ hope for a national title went to the wayside on one play in Knoxville. Turf Grass Mismanagement. Nevertheless, this is a major rivalry game where either team can win. If you need proof to see if UGA stands a chance in this game, look no further than last year’s affair when a downtrodden Florida team ruined the Dawgs’ possible run to the inaugural College Football Playoff.

Without further ado, here are the five players on the Georgia Bulldogs I’m most interested in watching on Saturday in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. It’s Georgia-Florida! Go Dawgs!
