One of college football’s coolest named rivalries (unofficially, anyway) is set to take place between No. 1 Georgia and Florida on Saturday.
The “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” will feature an all-name matchup between the Bulldogs and Gators, but seemingly little else ahead of the 2022 matchup. Top-ranked Georgia has seemingly woken up from a two-game lull earlier in the season to outscore its opponents 97-10 in the last two weeks.
Meanwhile, Florida is 1-2 against ranked opponents thus far this season, the lone victory a home upset vs. then-No. 7 Utah in the season opener. Whether the Gators can pull off another such victory against the Bulldogs remains to be seen.
One advantage Florida may have: The Gators face no pressure with first-year coach Billy Napier — unlike the Bulldogs, who are looking to repeat as national champions for the first time in school history. Will Georgia get caught looking ahead to next week’s top-three matchup against Tennessee?

It’s hard to call this rivalry a trap game given its historical relevance, but the 2022 season has already been a weird campaign — one Florida would love to take advantage of en route to yet another upset.
The Sporting News has all the information you need to know about the game, including how to watch on cable and streaming services, as well as date, time and location:
