Saturday afternoon, the Florida Gators (10-6, 6-5 SEC) will host the Georgia Bulldogs (13-8, 6-8 SEC) in the O’Connell Center in the second of their two annual meetings in Southeastern Conference play.
The all-time series reaches back nearly 100 years to the first game played in Athens on Feb. 10, 1926, which Georgia won, 55-27. Over the years, the two schools traded stretches of dominance, with UF’s longest winning streak in the series set at 11 games (March 3, 2004, to Jan. 28, 2009) while UGA’s longest of 10-straight games came early on in the rivalry from Jan. 6, 1928, to Feb. 12, 1932.
More recently, the Gators have won three in a row and 14 of the past 19 meetings with the Bulldogs. Georgia’s last win came on March 2, 2019, in Gainesville by a score of 61-55. UGA has had a habit of stealing games from UF’s home court lately, having won two of the last three meetings in the O’Dome.
Along with those historical facts, there are a few other interesting numbers of note heading into Saturday’s game. Here is a look at three important digits courtesy of the press notes.
