The Bulldogs rebounded from a poor game in early October by surpassing 40 points in each of their last two games (a 42-10 win over Auburn and a 55-0 triumph over Vanderbilt). The Gators had a bye week to lick their wounds after a 45-35 home loss to LSU.

Florida vs. Georgia: Must know

Richardson’s Golden Opportunity: Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson was one of the most hyped players of the offseason. Stories of him as a potential first-round draft pick, budding superstar, and Heisman contender were rife. So far, he has not lived up to those expectations.

The 6-foot-4, 232-pounder has more interceptions (seven) than touchdown passes (six), and he’s completed just 51.7% of his passes against SEC opponents. In this case, that has to change. Richardson is an absolute stallion on the ground, but Georgia’s defense is an unsolvable puzzle for one-dimensional teams. However, a bye week is a perfect opportunity for Richardson to unwind and for the coaching staff to work on some of his shortcomings without having to focus more on game preparation than pure development.

Impactful Injuries: Georgia wide receiver Adonai Mitchell, who was expected to be one of the Bulldogs’ biggest threats, has just five catches this year and has been out since Week 3 with an ankle injury. “AD is a high ankle sprain. And high ankle sprains, when you talk to everyone in the NFL and college football, it’s difficult to get an accurate measurement,” coach Kirby Smart said Monday. “The first thing you look for is do they need to do the repair? They walk the tightrope and do things like Arian. His wasn’t that kind of injury. But she stops. It’s a pain in the butt. So he’s fighting to come back and do whatever we ask.”

The status and potential impact of stud defenseman Jalen Carter is also up in the air after injuring his knee against Missouri and missing the last two games.

“Regarding Jalen, right now it’s the knee. It’s the MCL,” Smart said. “But the degree of it, the severity of it, just depends on the condition, how fast he can come back. He’s working to come back and we’re hoping to get them both back.”

Bye week may have come at just the right time for these two stars to get healthy and return for the stretch run.

Can Georgia open it? Bulldogs quarterback Stetson Bennett IV ranks third in the SEC for passing yards per game (290.4) and is tied for the most completions of 20 or more yards (30). That doesn’t bode well for a Florida defense that is giving up 244.3 passing yards per game and just set on fire by LSU’s Jayden Daniels, who had 349 passing yards and three passing touchdowns, during the Gators’ last game two weeks ago became.

If Bennett lights up Florida, the veteran will be put back in the race for the Heisman Trophy and a reminder that this Georgia offense is dangerous, balanced, and a perfect complement to their lights-out defense.

Georgia will take the win and make it pretty easy. The Florida defense will have no answer to what the Bulldogs offensive coordinator Todd Monken worked out during bye week, and it’s impossible to create a scenario where Richardson finally develops a downfield passing game. Still, Smart will likely take his foot off the gas as soon as possible, which will allow Florida to keep that within three touchdowns. Forecast: Florida +22.5
