The Florida Gators are undefeated and can help their SEC East chances with a win over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday afternoon.
The undefeated Florida Gators host the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday, in a game that has SEC East Division title implications. The Gators are first in the East with a 5-0 record in SEC play, and the Gamecocks are right behind them at 4-1.
The Gators are No. 2 in the first BCS standings of 2012, which means that they also have a potential national championship game berth to protect against the Gamecocks. South Carolina is coming off a two-point loss at LSU, which is the Gamecocks' only loss of the season.
Both teams rank among the nation's best in total defense -- the Gamecocks are No. 12, and the Gators are No. 13. They have limited opponents on the ground and through the air, and both rank in the top 10 in scoring defense. On the other side of the ball, Florida ranks 82nd in total offense, while South Carolina is No. 83.
Kickoff for Saturday's game is set for 3:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage by CBS. The Gators are three-point favorites.
