An SEC Eastern Division showdown will ensue in Columbia this weekend, as the 15th-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks entertain the Florida Gators.
Florida needs one more victory to become bowl eligible under first-year head coach Will Muschamp, but there is no doubt that this season has been a disappointment so far. The Gators are a mediocre 5-4, and their 3-4 SEC record isn't what fans of the program have come to expect. Last weekend, UF did find a way to halt a four-game skid with a 26-21 victory over visiting Vanderbilt, so it will be interesting to see if Muschamp's group can build on that effort.
This game is significant for South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier because of his legendary past as both a player and coach at Florida. Spurrier's Gamecocks enter this game with a 7-2 record and are eager to shake off the disappointment of last week's 44-28 setback to Arkansas. That defeat halted a three-game win streak and knocked the squad out of first place in the race for the SEC Eastern Division title.
