JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (Florida Gators) – The difference Saturday was solid quarterback play and ball security.
Georgia had both, Florida had neither, and for those reasons the No. 7 Bulldogs will play for the Southeastern Conference East Division title next week.
The No. 9 Gators, meanwhile, still have plenty to play for as far as the bowl season is concerned, but they also have much to repair after a second straight game in which they undermined a lot of what they did well by playing give-away.
Jake Fromm passed for 240 yards and three touchdowns, backup tailback D’Andre Swift rushed for 104 yards and a score, and the Bulldogs defense forced three turnovers and limited the Gators to a season-low in total yards on the way to a 36-17 win in the annual rivalry showdown on the St. Johns River.
By beating Florida (6-2, 4-2) for a second straight year, Georgia (7-1, 5-1) set up a showdown against No. 12 Kentucky (7-1, 5-1) next week in Athens, Ga., where the winner will clinch the SEC East and accompanying berth in the conference title game at Atlanta.
