October

Statistically, they are about as close as two teams can get, near mirror-images of each other in several categories, including total offense.

But while the Florida and Georgia coaching staffs continue to break down film of each other, two league coaches know first-hand what to expect from the Gators and Bulldogs.

Tennessee and LSU have each played both teams. Here's how their respective coaches breakdown the matchup.

Les Miles, LSU:

They are certainly both very capable teams. If Georgia continues to run the football like they have, they have a very, very talented receiving corps and they can throw the ball down the field well. I think that gives the Georgia offense their best opportunity at that matchup. I think the Florida offense certainly is extremely dangerous in itself with Tebow running their offense. It’s going to be a great matchup. I think it will really test both defenses and I think the big plays that are made in that game and the fewest mistakes made will probably win.''

Phillip Fulmer:

"Both of them are really fine football teams. I’m not sure at this point in the seson where they are health-wise. Both have that guy that can pull the trigger for them – Stafford and Tebow. That’s kind of where a good offensive team needs to start with efficient quarterbacks. And both are definitely that, where it’s throwing, or in Tebow’s case the ability to make a play by running. Certainly, both of them have good, solid defensive football teams, and both have solid kicking games. So it should be a heck of a matchup when they play."

Asked if either team has an advantage, Fulmer replied: "No, I don’t see it.''
