The eyes of the Southeastern Conference will be directed on Jacksonville Municipal Stadium Saturday afternoon at 3:30 when a struggling Georgia team tries to do something no team has done in the past 17 games — beat top-ranked Florida. Gators quarterback Tim Tebow will be seeking his fourth straight victory in his hometown. A Florida victory over Georgia and a Tennessee victory over South Carolina later in the day could allow Florida to clinch the East Division’s berth in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 5 in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome.

GAME 8: GEORGIA BULLDOGS vs. No. 1 FLORIDA GATORS

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 31 at 3:30 p.m. EDT.

WHERE: Jacksonville Municipal Stadium (80,000), Jacksonville, Fla.

WEATHER FORECAST: Partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of precipitation. The high temperature is expected to be 89 degrees with winds from the SE at 9 miles per hour.

OVER THE AIRWAVES: CBS Sports (Verne Lundquist, play-by-play; Gary Danielson, color analyst; Tracy Wolfson, sidelines) has the telecast; Gator Radio Network has broadcast (see below for more information and stations) with Mick Hubert, Lee McGriff and Steve Babik.

RECORDS: Georgia is 4-3 overall, 3-2 SEC East. Florida is 7-0 overall, 5-0 SEC East.

RANKINGS: Georgia is unranked. Florida is No.1 in the Bowl Championship Series rankings (Week 2), No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll (media), No. 1 in the USA Today/American Football Coaches Association Top 25 poll, No. 1 in the Harris Interactive poll (BCS rankings) and No. 1 in the Legends Coaches poll.

COACHES: Georgia, Mark Richt (Miami, Fla., 1982) is 86-25 (.775) in his ninth season at Georgia and overall. Record vs. Florida: 2-6. Florida, Urban Meyer (Cincinnati, 1988) is 51-9 (.850) in his fifth season at Florida and 90-17 (.841) in his ninth season as a head coach (with previous stops at Bowling Green and Utah). Record vs. Georgia: 3-1.

GATOR BYTES: The Gators put the nation’s longest winning streak – 17 – on the line Saturday. … Since Urban Meyer arrived for the 2005 season, Florida enjoys a 13-1 record against its primary rivals Tennesee (5-0), Florida State (4-0), Georgia (3-1) and Miami (1-0). … Florida is 21-5 in games played as the No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll. … With their 29-19 victory at Mississippi State, Florida’s first victory in Starkville since the 1985 season, the Gators completed their first sweep of their SEC West competition since 1998, beat the Bulldogs, LSU (13-3) and Arkansas (23-13). … For the second straight game, Florida had just three penalties in the game. … Florida had five (out of six drives) three-and-outs in the first half last week in Starkville. … Opponents LSU, Arkansas and Mississippi State have converted just 8-of-50 third-down plays Florida. … Chris Rainey had his (and Florida’s) second blocked field goal of the season and the Gators are 20-1 when blocking a kick and 14-0 when blocking a punt.

DAWG BONES: Georgia is 11-3 under Mark Richt following a bye week, including 1-0 against Florida. That victory was the 42-30 victory in 2007. … The Bulldogs have played the nation’s No. 1 team three times and are 1-2. Georgia lost to No. 1 Pittsburgh (led by Tony Dorsett) in the Jan. 1, 1977 Sugar Bowl 27-3 and to No. 1 Florida, 47-7, on Nov. 2, 1996. Georgia’s only victory playing No. 1 came on Nov. 9, 1985 when No. 17 Georgia beat No. 1 Florida, 24-3. … In that 1985 game, Georgia freshman Keith Henderson rushed for 145 yards and fellow freshman Tim Worley rushed for 104 as the Bulldogs rushed for 344 to offset a 408-yard passing performance by Kerwin Bell.

LAST TIME OUT: How Georgia and Florida fared in their last games:

Georgia: On Oct. 17 at Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville, Tenn., Joe Cox threw for 226 yards (on 16-of-31 passing) and two touchdowns – a 65-yarder to A.J. Green to open the scoring and 21-yarder to Caleb King in the fourth quarter – as Georgia won 34-10. King also scored on a 2-yard run as Georgia took a 17-3 halftime lead. Placekicker Blair Walsh kicked field goals of 42 and 43 yards for Georgia, who outgained Vanderbilt 399-296 and recorded three sacks.

Florida: On Oct. 24 at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss., the Gators’ defense surrendered just a pair of field goals to Mississippi State and beat the Bulldogs, 29-19. Florida’s defense came up with three interceptions despite playing without four starters, three on the line and middle linebacker Brandon Spikes. Linebacker Dustin Doe returned one interception 23 yards for a touchdown (A.J. Jones and Major Wright had the other thefts). Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had three sacks, while Spikes’ replacement, Ryan Stamper, led the defense with 13 tackles. Tim Tebow’s 26-yard touchdown run in the second quarter tied Herschel Walker for first place on the all-time SEC rushing touchdowns list with 49. He finished with 88 yards on 22 carries and threw for 127 yards on 12-of-22 passing but threw a pair of interceptions that were returned by MSU freshman Johnthan Banks 100 and 20 yards for touchdowns. Chris Rainey stepped up when Jeff Demps suffered a neck injury and rushed for 90 yards on 12 carries to lead the Florida rushing attack, which had a 249-92 edge over the Bulldogs.

SERIES: Georgia leads the series, depending on your allegiance, by 46-38-2 (Florida) or 47-38-2 (Georgia). The Bulldogs claim a 52-0 victory over the Gators in 1904 at Macon, Ga. Florida doesn’t recognize that game because football didn’t become a varsity sport until 1906.

Games at Jacksonville: Georgia leads 40-35-1. Games at Gainesville: Series tied 1-1. Games at Athens, Ga.: Georgia leads, 4-1. Games at neutral sites: Series tied 1-1-1 (Florida) or Georgia leads 2-1-1 (Georgia). Last 10 meetings: Florida 8-2. Current streak: 1, Florida (W, 49-10 in 2008). Longest Florida streak: 7 (1990-96). Longest Georgia streak: 7 (1941-1948, no game in 1943).

Results of games in the series (number in parentheses next to school was its ranking heading into the game that season):

The eyes of the Southeastern Conference will be directed on Jacksonville Municipal Stadium Saturday afternoon at 3:30 when a struggling Georgia team tries to do something no team has done in the past 17 games — beat top-ranked Florida. Gators quarterback Tim Tebow will be seeking his fourth straight victory in his hometown. A Florida victory over Georgia and a Tennessee victory over South Carolina later in the day could allow Florida to clinch the East Division’s berth in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 5 in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome.

GAME 8: GEORGIA BULLDOGS vs. No. 1 FLORIDA GATORS

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 31 at 3:30 p.m. EDT.

WHERE: Jacksonville Municipal Stadium (80,000), Jacksonville, Fla.

WEATHER FORECAST: Partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of precipitation. The high temperature is expected to be 89 degrees with winds from the SE at 9 miles per hour.

OVER THE AIRWAVES: CBS Sports (Verne Lundquist, play-by-play; Gary Danielson, color analyst; Tracy Wolfson, sidelines) has the telecast; Gator Radio Network has broadcast (see below for more information and stations) with Mick Hubert, Lee McGriff and Steve Babik.

RECORDS: Georgia is 4-3 overall, 3-2 SEC East. Florida is 7-0 overall, 5-0 SEC East.

RANKINGS: Georgia is unranked. Florida is No.1 in the Bowl Championship Series rankings (Week 2), No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll (media), No. 1 in the USA Today/American Football Coaches Association Top 25 poll, No. 1 in the Harris Interactive poll (BCS rankings) and No. 1 in the Legends Coaches poll.

COACHES: Georgia, Mark Richt (Miami, Fla., 1982) is 86-25 (.775) in his ninth season at Georgia and overall. Record vs. Florida: 2-6. Florida, Urban Meyer (Cincinnati, 1988) is 51-9 (.850) in his fifth season at Florida and 90-17 (.841) in his ninth season as a head coach (with previous stops at Bowling Green and Utah). Record vs. Georgia: 3-1.

GATOR BYTES: The Gators put the nation’s longest winning streak – 17 – on the line Saturday. … Since Urban Meyer arrived for the 2005 season, Florida enjoys a 13-1 record against its primary rivals Tennesee (5-0), Florida State (4-0), Georgia (3-1) and Miami (1-0). … Florida is 21-5 in games played as the No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll. … With their 29-19 victory at Mississippi State, Florida’s first victory in Starkville since the 1985 season, the Gators completed their first sweep of their SEC West competition since 1998, beat the Bulldogs, LSU (13-3) and Arkansas (23-13). … For the second straight game, Florida had just three penalties in the game. … Florida had five (out of six drives) three-and-outs in the first half last week in Starkville. … Opponents LSU, Arkansas and Mississippi State have converted just 8-of-50 third-down plays Florida. … Chris Rainey had his (and Florida’s) second blocked field goal of the season and the Gators are 20-1 when blocking a kick and 14-0 when blocking a punt.

DAWG BONES: Georgia is 11-3 under Mark Richt following a bye week, including 1-0 against Florida. That victory was the 42-30 victory in 2007. … The Bulldogs have played the nation’s No. 1 team three times and are 1-2. Georgia lost to No. 1 Pittsburgh (led by Tony Dorsett) in the Jan. 1, 1977 Sugar Bowl 27-3 and to No. 1 Florida, 47-7, on Nov. 2, 1996. Georgia’s only victory playing No. 1 came on Nov. 9, 1985 when No. 17 Georgia beat No. 1 Florida, 24-3. … In that 1985 game, Georgia freshman Keith Henderson rushed for 145 yards and fellow freshman Tim Worley rushed for 104 as the Bulldogs rushed for 344 to offset a 408-yard passing performance by Kerwin Bell.

LAST TIME OUT: How Georgia and Florida fared in their last games:

Georgia: On Oct. 17 at Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville, Tenn., Joe Cox threw for 226 yards (on 16-of-31 passing) and two touchdowns – a 65-yarder to A.J. Green to open the scoring and 21-yarder to Caleb King in the fourth quarter – as Georgia won 34-10. King also scored on a 2-yard run as Georgia took a 17-3 halftime lead. Placekicker Blair Walsh kicked field goals of 42 and 43 yards for Georgia, who outgained Vanderbilt 399-296 and recorded three sacks.

Florida: On Oct. 24 at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Miss., the Gators’ defense surrendered just a pair of field goals to Mississippi State and beat the Bulldogs, 29-19. Florida’s defense came up with three interceptions despite playing without four starters, three on the line and middle linebacker Brandon Spikes. Linebacker Dustin Doe returned one interception 23 yards for a touchdown (A.J. Jones and Major Wright had the other thefts). Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had three sacks, while Spikes’ replacement, Ryan Stamper, led the defense with 13 tackles. Tim Tebow’s 26-yard touchdown run in the second quarter tied Herschel Walker for first place on the all-time SEC rushing touchdowns list with 49. He finished with 88 yards on 22 carries and threw for 127 yards on 12-of-22 passing but threw a pair of interceptions that were returned by MSU freshman Johnthan Banks 100 and 20 yards for touchdowns. Chris Rainey stepped up when Jeff Demps suffered a neck injury and rushed for 90 yards on 12 carries to lead the Florida rushing attack, which had a 249-92 edge over the Bulldogs.

SERIES: Georgia leads the series, depending on your allegiance, by 46-38-2 (Florida) or 47-38-2 (Georgia). The Bulldogs claim a 52-0 victory over the Gators in 1904 at Macon, Ga. Florida doesn’t recognize that game because football didn’t become a varsity sport until 1906.

Games at Jacksonville: Georgia leads 40-35-1. Games at Gainesville: Series tied 1-1. Games at Athens, Ga.: Georgia leads, 4-1. Games at neutral sites: Series tied 1-1-1 (Florida) or Georgia leads 2-1-1 (Georgia). Last 10 meetings: Florida 8-2. Current streak: 1, Florida (W, 49-10 in 2008).
