Florida Gators vs Alabama Crimson Tide predictions?
Who do you think will win in the swamp tonight? My prediction is 21-17 Gators.

As much as I hate to say this, I think 'Bama will win 27-20.
After last season’s disappointing 8-5 finish, Florida was arguably the SEC’s biggest mystery team coming into 2011. The Gators had the talent to compete for the SEC East crown, but how well they would blend with the new coaching staff was uncertain.
The early results on new Florida coach Will Muschamp have been positive. The Gators are 4-0 and scored a key SEC East victory over Tennessee in Week 3. While Muschamp’s hire has been a success, so has Charlie Weis as offensive coordinator. Florida struggled on offense all of last season, but seems to be a much-improved unit.
Alabama entered the season with high expectations and one of the favorites to claim the national title. So far, the Crimson Tide has done nothing to raise any question marks about their ability to finish the year as the No. 1 team. The offense is beginning to come together, while the defense is one of the best in college football.
The Crimson Tide has won the last two games in this series, including a 31-6 blowout win last season in Tuscaloosa. Florida’s last victory came in 1999, defeating Alabama in the SEC title game 34-7. Since the SEC went to a title game in 1992, these two teams have met seven times in the conference championship.
Another interesting storyline to this game is the familiarity between Muschamp and Alabama coach Nick Saban. Muschamp worked under Saban from 2001 to 2005. Both coaches have a lot of respect for each other, but there’s no doubt friendship will take a back seat to winning on Saturday night.
Although Florida has looked good through the first four weeks, this is easily its toughest matchup. Even though it’s a different team and a new coaching staff, the Gators were easily handled by Alabama last season. Is the gap between the two teams that great or has it closed?
Even in Gainesville, the Crimson Tide should be able to win. Alabama’s defense should be able to limit Rainey and Demps on the ground, while limiting Brantley’s success through the air.
The Gators defense won’t allow Richardson to run wild, but the Crimson Tide will get just enough offense to win this game.
And don't be surprised if this is just the first of two meetings this season between these two teams.

This is perhaps the biggest match up between 2 teams so highly ranked so Late in the season, it's really unfortunate that the S.E.C, had to have a championship game unlike many other conferences, Thus knocking out one of the best teams in the ncaa, Alabama, I feel is going to get beat, and badly, Florida, has dominated every team since there lone loss, These are just the ranked teams Oct 11 (4) LSU W 51-21 RANKED 4TH BEAT THEM BY 30 Nov 1 at (8) Georgia W 49-10 RANKED 8TH BEAT THEM BY 39 Nov 15 (24) South Carolina W 56-6 RANKED 24TH won by 50 Nov 29 at (23) Florida State W 45-15 RANKED 23 WON BY 30 If florida beats alabama, they Will jump over teams into the bcs, and deservantly so, How many other teams in the top 50, can say they beat 5 top 20 teams by an average of 37 + pts?
