The SEC Championship Game is a battle between two teams that appear to be going in completely different directions as the 11-1 Alabama Crimson Tide face the 10-2 Florida Gators at the Georgia Dome on Saturday afternoon. Alabama appears to be flying high right now while Florida looks to be falling apart at the wrong time of the season.
The Crimson Tide clinched the SEC West title with a 29-13 win over Auburn last week and hasn’t lost since mid-September. Derrick Henry is fast approaching 2,000 rushing yards for the season with his 1,797 yards on the ground on 295 carries during the regular season. Henry has also added 22 touchdowns for Alabama. Jake Coker has thrown for 2,285 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions for the season while finding his favorite receiver in Calvin Ridley 67 times for 791 yards and five touchdowns. An Alabama win would clinch a berth for them in the college football playoff on New Year’s Eve.
The Gators rolled through the SEC East but over the last two weeks have looked awful. A 20-14 overtime win against Florida Atlantic was followed by a 27-2 loss to Florida State at home last week. Treon Harris has thrown for 1,365 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions this season for Florida while looking the direction of Antonio Callaway 29 times for 557 yards and four touchdowns overall for the year. Kelvin Taylor has rushed for 977 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground for a Florida team that has a great record at 10-2 but can they stop Henry and the Crimson Tide offense to pull off the upset win?
