The stakes are pretty clear on Saturday for both these teams: a win keeps you alive in the SEC East race; a loss all but eliminates you from contention. No pressure!

For Florida, all eyes will be on Tim Tebow's sore shoulder. If he is able to play all out with no effects from the bruised non-throwing shoulder suffered last week at Kentucky, Florida should put up a lot of points. The Gators are averaging more than 40 points per game, and Tebow accounts for most of that offense.

Georgia will need to keep pace, and QB Matthew Stafford has the talent to pick apart the Gators secondary, which gave up 415 passing yards last week to Kentucky's Andre Woodson. Stafford will need to have a big game, as the Bulldogs are down to one primary running back, Knowshon Moreno, in the ground game.

Whichever defense makes the key stops and forces turnovers in the second half will win this one. Look for Florida to dominate time of possession through its spread rushing attack and controlled passing from Tebow. Georgia will pull out all the stops, but as long as Tebow is 100 percent, he'll carry the Gators to victory.

Florida Gator Nation Prediction: Florida 35, Georgia 20
