On Saturday one of the great college football rivalries will be renewed when the Florida Gators meet the Georgia Bulldogs in “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” This matchup features two elite coaches with Georgia’s Kirby Smart and Florida’s Dan Mullen. Both have had immediate college football betting line impacts. Smart nearly won the 2017 national championship and the 2018 SEC title. While Mullen has put together back to back double-digit win and top ten seasons. Saturday’s difference may come down to the quarterbacks. Specifically, Florida’s Kyle Trask has emerged as a folk hero. Stetson Bennett came out of nowhere to become Georgia’s starter but is starting to fizzle.
