College football scouting report: Florida Gators vs. No. 22 Georgia Bulldogs, 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Ch. 10, 620-AM

Florida vs. No. 22 Georgia, 3:30 p.m., Ch. 10, 620-AM

Watch out for …

Florida QB John Brantley's return. The senior is expected to play for the first time since he suffered a high ankle sprain in the Oct. 1 game against Alabama. How well he has healed remains to be seen, but what's certain is that he has to get better protection from his offensive line than what the unit has provided the past few weeks.

Antonya English, Times staff writer

Georgia QB Aaron Murray, a former Plant High standout, is third in the SEC in passing (averaging 236.1 yards per game), and Florida (4-3, 2-3, SEC), which has struggled against the run, faces another top rusher in freshman Isaiah Crowell, fourth in the SEC. Georgia (5-2, 4-1) starts the game without NT Kwame Geathers and FS Shawn Williams, who are suspended for the first half for fighting. RB Jeff Demps' return from injury should help open things up for senior RB Chris Rainey and the Gators' running game in Jacksonville.
