Georgia-Florida 2022 Kickoff

There may not be a bigger stage in NCAA football than playing in front of hostile SEC crowds. This matchup is set to take place in at TIAA Bank Field, home of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, and will surely draw a ton of fans. Anyone looking to tune in can stream the game on Paramount+ as well.

Georgia & Florida have a rivalry that dates back decades as two of the conference's most successful programs. The Bulldogs lead the all-time series 54-44-2 and have taken down the Gators in four of the last five seasons. In 2021, head coach Kirby Smart's team earned an impressive 34-7 victory.

While Georgia lost 15 players to the NFL Draft, it also welcomes the third-highest rated 2022 recruiting class, according to 247Sports. Stetson Bennett returns to run the offense after completing 64.5% of his pass attempts for 2,862 yards and 29 touchdowns (7 interceptions) last fall.

The Bulldogs are currently slated as 15-point favorites over the Gators, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Looking ahead, Georgia has the second-best odds to win the National Championship at +350 and Florida is tied for the 16th-best odds at +10000.
