Florida and Georgia met in Gainesville for just the second time in the 72-game history of the series. The last time Florida and Georgia played in Gainesville was 1931. The game was held in Jacksonville from 1933 to 1993 but was moved because of renovations to the Gator Bowl. The Gators have faced Georgia more times than any other opponent. Georgia entered the game leading 43-26-2.
