If you’re overly concerned about style points, you run the risk of missing this:
Georgia will travel to Knoxville seeking a 15th straight overall victory over an SEC East foe, that streak having started with Rodrigo Blankenship’s 25-yard field goal as time expired that gave the Bulldogs a 27-24 topping of Kentucky in Lexington late in the 2016 season. Georgia’s current tally of 14 in a row trails the 25 straight SEC East games Florida won under Steve Spurrier from 1992 to 1997 and the 16 straight the Gators attained under Urban Meyer from 2007 to 2010.
Before sweeping the East in 2017 and again last year under coach Kirby Smart, the Bulldogs never had gone through divisional play unscathed since the SEC split into two six-team divisions in 1992, when Arkansas and South Carolina joined the league. They became seven-team divisions in 2012 after the additions of Texas A&M and Missouri.
If the Dawgs manage wins in their next three games, they’ll arrive in Jacksonville having wiped out Corch’s divisional victory streak and can take another step towards Spurrier’s mark by beating the Gators. Would I enjoy that? Why, yes, I believe I would.
