One of college football’s greatest rivalries and one of college football’s biggest annual events takes place Saturday in The SEC on CBS Game of the Week. No. 1 Georgia i Florida clash in Jacksonville with bragging rights on the line and a chance to set the tone for the rest of the season for each team.

The Bulldogs bounced back from a sluggish start in October by hitting the 40-point mark in each of their last two games (a 42-10 win over Auburn and a 55-0 rout of Vanderbilt). The Gators had a bye week to lick their wounds after a 45-35 home loss to LSU.

What will happen on Saturday on the banks of the river St. John? Here’s a preview of the head-to-head vs. spread election showdown.

Florida vs. Georgia: Need to know

Richardson’s golden opportunity: The Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson he was one of the most hyped players of the offseason. Stories about him as a possible first-round pick, budding superstar and Heisman contender were commonplace. So far, it has not lived up to those expectations.

The 6-foot-4, 232-pounder has more interceptions (seven) than touchdown passes (six), and has completed just 51.7 percent of his passes against SEC opponents. That will have to change in this one. Richardson is a stud on the ground, but Georgia’s defense is an impossible puzzle for one-dimensional teams to solve. However, a bye week is a perfect opportunity for Richardson to decompress and for the coaching staff to work on some of his shortcomings without having to focus more on game preparation than pure development.

Impact injuries: Georgia wide receiver Adonai Mitchell, who was expected to be one of the Bulldogs’ top deep threats, has just five catches on the 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 everybody NFL and through college football, it’s hard to pinpoint a measure,” coach Kirby Smart said Monday. “The first thing you’re looking for is do they have to make the repair? They do the tightrope and things like Arian. His was not that kind of injury. But it lasts. It’s a pain in the ass. So he’s fighting to come back and do everything we ask him to do.”

Stud defensive lineman Jalen Carter’s Status and potential impact are also up in the air after he injured his knee against Missouri and missed the last two games.

“In terms of 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 level of conditioning, how quickly he can come back. He’s working his way back and we’re hoping to get them both back.”

The bye week might have come at the perfect time for these two stars to get healthy and get back into the running.

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

If Bennett lights up Florida, it will reinsert the veteran into the Heisman Trophy race and serve as a reminder that this Georgia offense is dangerous, balanced and a perfect complement to their shutout defense.

Georgia will take the win and they will do it hard. Florida’s defense won’t have an answer for what Bulldogs offensive coordinator Todd Monken laid out during the bye week, and it’s impossible to create a scenario where Richardson finally develops a passing game down the field. That said, Smart will likely take his foot off the gas as soon as possible, allowing Florida to keep it within three touchdowns. Prediction: Florida +22.5
