Florida And #18 Georgia To Play at World’s Biggest Cocktail Party

There is no love loss between the Florida Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs, neither team is particularly fond of the other, and usually when they meet, a trip to the SEC championship game is on the line.
That scenario plays out again today when the #11 Gators look to get back into the national championship game picture, and the #18 Bulldogs look to show that they belong in the conversation when it comes to top SEC teams.
Florida finally got back on track last week when they went on the road and defeated a very good Kentucky team, the win helped coach Urban Meyer avoid his first three game losing streak ever.
Georgia has been a bit of a mystery so far this year as they have at times looked like the best team in the conference, while at other times looked like they are terrible. They must bring their best today if they are looking to upset the Gators.
Florida, ironically, is not out of the picture for a national title yet, and although they have lost two games, a win today would probably get them back into the top ten, where anything can happen with over a month of football left to play.
The game will be televised on CBS as the SEC game of the week.
ABC Gambling On Buckeyes And Nittany Lions in Prime Time

College football is just as much about ratings to the television networks as any other product that they air, and that is why on a day where many top conference games are being played, ABC is gambling on the draw of Ohio State for their prime time game.
The Buckeyes come into their game with Penn State as the #1 team in the BCS standings, and while many people around the country believe that ranking is by default, they will be out to solidify their hold on #1 with an impressive win.
Penn State is looking to upset the Buckeyes, and many believe that since Ohio State has not played anyone, that the thoughts of an upset are realistic.
The game will be tough for the Buckeyes as they have to go on the road to Happy Valley, not the place where they want to play their first meaningful game of the year.
The PAC Ten has a big match up between California and Oregon that could have filled the prime time slot, but ABC went with the #1 team, and is banking on their large fan base around the country to draw ratings.
Should Penn State pull off the upset, Boston College would probably be the new #1 team after their comeback victory on Thursday night on the road against Virginia Tech.
Game time for Ohio State and Penn State is set for 8:00.
