UGA Bragging Rights in the Georgia vs. Florida Rivalry

- Georgia won the first meeting between the two schools by a 52-0 margin. The game was played on October 15, 1904, in Macon, Georgia.

- By beating the No. 7th ranked Gators in 1966, Georgia denied Florida a share of the SEC football championship by upending the Steve Spurrier quarterbacked team 27-10. Although Spurrier won the Heisman that season, he threw three interceptions to UGA defenders.

However thanks to a magical last-minute 75-yard TD catch and run by Lindsay Scott, Vince Dooley's squad prevailed and went on to win the National Championship.

- The 1985 contest featured a Florida Gators program that was ranked No. 1 for the first time in the program's history. Well...that didn't last long after a 24-3 Georgia win.

- With Head Coach Mark Richt pushing extra buttons to help Georgia break a six-game losing streak agains Florida, the Dawgs "Stomped" their way to an emotional 42-30 victory in 2007.
