Florida Has Shot to Clinch SEC East

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Getting to Atlanta for the Southeastern Conference championship game is the goal for every team in the Southeastern Conference.

Florida has accomplished it more often than anyone else.

Maybe that's why the third-ranked Gators are taking such a ho-hum approach to Saturday's all-important game against No. 12 Georgia. A more likely scenario, though, is that it's early, and players and coaches are saving all the hype and hoopla for the weekend.

The Gators (7-0, 6-0 SEC) can clinch a spot in the conference title game with a victory against rival Georgia (7-1, 5-1) in nearby Jacksonville. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, need to beat Florida and probably win remaining games against Mississippi and Auburn to get to Atlanta.

Gators coach Will Muschamp says "we don't approach things differently based on the situation."
