No. 7 Florida might have been caught looking ahead to Saturday night’s SEC championship game against No. 1 Alabama when it lost to unranked LSU last weekend, an outcome that may have ended its College Football Playoff hopes regardless of its conference final result.
But that doesn’t mean its showdown with the Crimson Tide will mean any less to a team that could still make it at least 10 wins in three straight seasons for the first time since the late 1990s. The Gators (8-2), who still believe they would be in the College Football Playoff with a victory, are also interested in playing spoiler to Alabama’s bid at a perfect season. The Tide (10-0) last went unbeaten in 2009.
There are Heisman trophy contenders on both sidelines. Florida has record-breaking quarterback Kyle Trask and Alabama has the prolific combo of passer Mac Jones and receiver DeVonta Smith.
Alabama holds a streak of six consecutive wins over Florida.
