For all of you who know as surely as the sun rises in the east that the Georgia-Florida series will be magically transformed if the game would just get the hell out of Jacksonville, here are some pesky stats:
… Georgia is 24-13 at home and 26-11 on the road against the other five SEC East teams. (Since the SEC went to divisions, the Bulldogs have played Florida home-and-away once, with the rest of the games against the Gators in Jacksonville.)
Georgia’s “opposite” record also extends to playing the SEC West. The Bulldogs are 16-11 at home and 20-6-1 on the road against SEC West opponents.
The only other team in the conference that has a better road record than home record against division rivals is Vanderbilt. That’s probably got something to do with the weather in Nashville.
