College football 2012 schedule: Florida tries to wrap up SEC East

Chris Trotman

The Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs meet in Jacksonville, Fla., Saturday. A Florida win would give the Gators the SEC East title.

The Florida Gators have played in big games this season, but Saturday's is the biggest to date. Florida travels to Jacksonville to take on the arch rival Georgia Bulldogs, and with a win, the Gators would clinch the SEC East title.

Florida (7-0, 6-0 SEC) has experienced a meteoric rise this season after two consecutive subpar years. The Gators are No. 2 in the BCS rankings in head coach Will Muschamp's second season. Georgia (6-1, 4-1) opened the season with four consecutive easy wins, but the No. 10 Bulldogs have struggled in their last three games. Following a nail-biting 51-44 victory over Tennessee, the Dawgs were blasted at South Carolina, 35-7. Georgia edged a hapless Kentucky team, 29-24, last Saturday.

Florida State (7-1, 4-1 ACC) looks for its third straight win Saturday, when the Seminoles take on a surprising Duke team (6-2, 2-1). FSU is coming off a 33-20 victory over Miami (4-4, 3-2).

South Florida (2-5, 0-3 Big East) will try to snap a five-game losing streak when the Bulls host Syracuse (3-4, 2-1) Saturday. Central Florida (5-2, 3-0 C-USA) will put its unbeaten conference record on the line against Marshall (3-4, 2-1).
