It's like Ali vs. Frazier. #1 Alabama vs. #2 Florida with a trip to the National Championship awaiting the winner. Yes, a heavy weight battle of epic proportions awaits in this year's SEC Championship. Alabama's Nick Saban chose to downplay it as much as possible Friday.
'First of all, I have no expectations. We have goals in place and things like that.'
Florida head coach Urban Meyer was more says the teams are very similar.
'They're a good team, but so are the Florida Gators. The power stats are all there....very similar'
Since losing to Ole Miss September 27th, Tim Tebow and the Gators have destroyed every team in their path. The Gators average 46 points per game, 3rd most in the country. They'll meet head on with the Tide's 3rd best defense in the country who allow just 12 points per game. Oddsmakers like the offense, favoring Florida by 9 1/2.
'They have been down like a total of 5 minutes all year. So hopefully we can jump on them quick,' says Tebow. 3
3 wins, just 1 loss between these two teams and SO much on the line for Alabama...a perfect 12-0 season that would be ruined with a loss. Game time 3pm Saturday in the Georgia Dome.
