The Gators' loss to Georgia takes the fate of the East division out of Florida's hand, and gives driver's seat to Georgia for a spot in the SEC Championship Game.
The Florida Gators' first loss of the season was a costly one, as the Gators, despite remaining atop the SEC's East division standings as October ends, are no longer in the drivers seat in the division after dropping their key meeting with the Georgia Bulldogs.
Both teams have a loss to their record, but Georgia's victory gives them a tiebreaker if both should finish the year by winning out.
In the West division, the familiar faces of the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide are among the leaders, and the two will square off in Baton Rouge next weekend. The Mississippi State Bulldogs are also in play in the West after suffering their first loss of the season at the hands of the Crimson Tide.
