#1 UF Vs #7 Alabama. SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, Ga. G5. @Florida- lost 24-17- In a very tough game Florida prevailed 24-17. Rainey led the Gators with 103 rushing yards and 2 td's. and Brantley threw for 231 yards and 1 td. Florida ran out early leading 14-3 at the end of the 1st quarter. then Bama cut it to 7 with a Td of their own by McCarron throwing for a td and forcing UF to a fg and UF led 17-10 at HT. then Florida extended the Lead in the 4th quarter to 24-10, Then Bama scored again to cut it to 24-17, and failed on the onside kick. UF closed out the game from there. TR was held to 43 yards rushing. McCarron threw for 274 and 2 TD's. Deandrew White led all receivers with 185 yards and 2 Td's. This was the earlier Meeting Between these Teams. The only Difference is it was in Gainsville, With the Ga. Dome split 50/50 it should be more of a even keel for Both teams. For Alabama establishing the run is crutical to their Success. TR only had 43 yards in the 1st meeting and is ready to battle the Gator defense. Now MCcarron had a good game last time with 274 yrds and 2 Td's, He must be ready again for the Gator Defense. Florida they have everything to lose in this Game. No BCS No SEC Title if they lose to Bama, and if they win then they play possibly OSU in the BCS Champ Game. Here are the Breakdowns of everything for this Game. Bama's Offense Vs the Gator Defense- In the last meeting the running game was not the Dominant factor in the game. TR only had 43 yrds rushing and no td's. MCcarron threw for over 200 yrds in the game and 2 Td's and Freshman Deandrew White scorched the Gator Defense for 185 yards and 2 Td's. For Bama to win they must win the line of scrimmage and the O-line must open the Holes for TR and Goode and Lacy. Bama has very good recievers that are led by Gibson, Hanks and White and TE Williams. For the Gator Defense to be successful they must get pressure on MCcarron and force bad throws and get Int's. The Gators must shore up their 2ndary if they are going to be successful in this game. CoachBama has had great practices this week and after the 41-7 demolish of Michigan, Bama will have to play a perfect game in order to win this game. The Gators Defense has been led (like Bama) by their Defense, sure their not getting much of the Turnovers (they are -3 in TO) they must play very physical to win over Bama. This reporter feels it will come down to the 4th Quarter again just like their 1st Battle. Gator's offense Vs Bama's Def.- Florida's offense returned many starters this season and it showed as they continued to dominate the SEC east and many top 25 matches last one vs Oregon as they shut out the Ducks 35-0. Rainey is a dual-threat as a rb and receiver no defense has been able to contain him on many plays. Rainey torched Bama's Defense for 103 yrds and several catches as a reciever. Brantley is the Veteran Leader who Back-upped Tebow and Now is in his Final year as the Gator QB has passed for over 3,000 yards again and had he been a 4 yr starter might have had a chance at some of the Gator Records. The Recieving core is strong as they returned many from last year. Coach S&G has had the Breezy ride through the SEC East and is poised for another BCS Champ Gm appearance. Bama's Defense is #1 on the run and is strong up front with Dareus and davis on the ends and Chapman and Murphy in the Middle. the LB core is Very solid with Soph Hightower and Fresh Nico Johnson patroling the Middle of the Pack. Kirkpatrick is the Team Leader on the 2ndary and along with Robby Green the 2ndrary has been Good and consistant all year. Coaching- CoachBama and CoachS&G has had their teams ready for this game since day 1 of the season. Bama was left out last yr as they stumbled towards the end of the season and Arkie got the invite to Atl. CB has been riding his players all season with rough "Bearish" practices to get them ready for this year. on the other side CS&G has been living the High Life with 1 BCS Title and is looking for another. The Battles are well documented between these 2 coaches. CB had this to say "I have alot of respect for Florida and what they've done and they have been a very tough team to upset. They have alot of great players and Great Coaching to get them to where they are now, Best of Luck to them in this Game." Both Coaches realize what's at stake and have their players ready. Final Note- This should be 1 hell of a game as Both teams prepare for the Game. Florida has basically partied most of the week in Atl as Bama has prepared for the game with some partying in Atl. The Fan Base has been Off the Hook with all the radio talk shows and games and tailgating so it should be a Great Game. Anytime these 2 teams play its gonna be a Battle. These 2 coaches know each other well from their days in Evolution. They never met on the field in Evo due to having different teams. But the rivarly has cranked up since they came to GG. Will it be a another SEC Champ for UF or will it be a Sec Champ for the Many that Bama has Won. Welcome to the 1st of 2 Great Games for the Right to the BCS Champ.
