Who will win the SEC East?

GEORGIA BULLDOGS | SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

Coach: Kirby Smart

Georgia Players to watch

**Sophomore CB Eric Stokes (6-1/185)

As a freshman, Stokes played in 13 of 14 games, starting three of the last four. In 2019, he has played in all seven games thus far, starting in six; he has 17 total tackles and a team-high eight pass breakups. An explosive athlete with fluid hip and good closing speed, Stokes will need to use long arms and leaping ability to box out the taller Florida receivers.

HC Kirby Smart said earlier this week of Stokes, ” He didn’t grow up playing corner.  He was a talented athlete.  He was fast, he was a running back.  He was a raw guy who has developed and gotten better through hard work and habits.  With his length and his speed, the sky’s the limit for him.”

*Junior ILB Monte Rice (6-1/235)

Rice has played and started at LB in all seven games so far. He is the team’s leading tackler with 41 total stops. “They’ve got better players than we’ve played so far this year, in my opinion, especially all over the field at the receiver position,” Rice said. “They are all fast and can make big plays, so it’s going to come down to good pass coverage and a good pass rush and stopping the run.”

***rFr OLB Azeez Ojulari (6-3/240)

Smart said in spring ball that he wanted to see Ojulari to be more physically. And so far, Ojulari’s done that this season. Similar to Rice, Ojulari’s game is more predicated on power; however, the redshirt freshman also brings enough athleticism to get into the opponent’s backfield. He currently leads the team in sacks (3.5) and tackles-for-loss (also 3.5).

Senior RB Brian Herrien (6-0/210)

To win this game, Georgia needs to run the ball. No doubt starting running back D’Andre Swift will get this share of carries. Where Herrien can make a difference for the Bulldogs is in the short-yardage power running game. He’s played in six games and has five touchdowns. He may not sound like a difference make, but Herrien had been dealing with lower back spasms and did not play in Georgia’s loss to South Carolina on Oct. 12. He is expected to play against Florida.

***

FLORIDA GATORS | SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

Coach: Dan Mullen

Florida Players to watch:

*Junior DE/Buck Jonathan Greenard (6-4/261)

Greenard leads the Gators in sacks (4), tackles-for-loss (6.5), and seven passes hurried. He also has three passes defended. Greenard has been battling an ankle injury that has held him back the last two game, but is expected to to health enough to play vs Georgia. Getting Greenard and DE Jabari Zuniga back on the field is big for the Florida defense. While both were out in the past two games, the Gators gave up some big plays in the running game and struggled to produce a steady pass rush. They’ll need to bring their “A” game against this Georgia rushing attack.

*Junior QB Kyle Trask (6-5/234)

When Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks suffering a brutal-looking season-ending injury to his right leg on Sept 14 against Kentucky, it created an opportunity for Trask to step in and lead this Gator’s team. Franks, then, was injured in the same game. Trask, however, came back to lead Florida to a key victory of #7 ranked Auburn in week six. The Gator’s are currently sitting at #6 in the nation. Trask is efficient and accurate; he doesn’t force anything, and he does well getting rid of the ball when nothing is there. If he can play mistake-free football, Florida should win this game.

Senior RB Lamical Perine (5-11/227)

Perine put up 130 against Auburn, and that’s the kind of production HC Dan Mullen would love to see against Georgia. Unfortunately, Perine has only topped the 100 yard mark once this season. Perine has the physicality to run between the tackles and enough speed to make defenders miss. To keep from putting the game on Trask’s shoulders, Florida’s offensive line will need to open some running lanes for Perine & Co.

**Sophomore TE Kyle Pitts (6-6/246)

Georgia’s ILB Monte Rice said of Pitts, “He’s a great player. He makes a lot of plays. I think he has the most targets probably in the nation for a tight end. In order for Florida to win, they’re going to have to get him the ball for him to make plays. We’ve just got to play our coverage and do what we’re supposed to.”
