ATLANTA (AP) -- Cheering for Florida was easy for Aaron Murray and the Georgia Bulldogs when the Gators were playing South Carolina.
Now comes the hard part: It's No. 12 Georgia's turn to play the undefeated and No. 3 Gators.
Florida's 44-11 win over South Carolina on Saturday made it possible for Georgia to control its fate in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division.
Georgia (6-1, 4-1 SEC) trails only Florida (7-0, 6-0) in the East after struggling to beat Kentucky 29-24 on Saturday night. Murray lifted the Bulldogs with his career-best 427 yards passing and four touchdowns.
If Georgia wins the rest of its conference games, it would finish with no worse than a tie for first with Florida in the division and would play in its second straight SEC championship game.
