Happy Friday, everyone. Alabama will kick off SEC play tomorrow when they head to Gainesville. Your previews:. A possible SEC Championship Game preview? Florida still has to get by Georgia, but the Gators first must find a way to remain competitive with Alabama. Good luck with that, right? Our golden rule is to not bet against the Crimson Tide in too many situations, but this one could be an exception. Alabama will still win this game by two scores, but Florida as a two-touchdown favorite may be just a tad too dicey to consider.
