2011-12 Top 25 College Football Games of the Year
#12 Alabama Crimson Tide @ Florida Gators

When Tim Tebow was roaming the field for the Florida Gators, it was seemingly an annual game that they played against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game. This year in Gainesville, the stakes aren’t quite as high as they once were years ago with both SEC and National Championship implications on the line, but this is still definitely one of the biggest games of the year.

The Gators are most certainly a shadow of the team that had Tebow and a slew of other talented stars on it, but so too, are the Crimson Tide. RB Mark Ingram had a great career in Tuscaloosa, especially against Florida, but now, the job is left to RB Trent Richardson. The speedy back has shown all sorts of potential, and now that the backfield is his alone, we are expecting big time things. This is definitely going to be a big time test for new QB AJ McCarron, who looked good in relief a season ago. This is the second road game for Alabama on the season, and if the first one is lost against the Penn State Nittany Lions, this could be a National Championship make or break situation.

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Florida Gators Past Games (Since 1995)
2010: Alabama 31 – Florida 6
2009: Alabama 32 – Florida 13
2008: Florida 31 – Alabama 20
2006: Florida 28 – Alabama 13
2005: Alabama 31 – Florida 3
1999: Alabama 34 – Florida 7
1999: Alabama 40 – Florida 39
1998: Florida 16 – Alabama 10
1996: Florida 45 – Alabama 30

Florida has its normal cupcakes to start the season, but this is where things are going to be getting a bit tricky. The Gators not only have to deal with Alabama on October 1st, but LSU, Auburn, and Georgia immediately thereafter. This is the only home game from September 17th until November 5th, and to say that it is a must win game for first year Head Coach Will Muschamp is an understatement. QB John Brantley was a wreck last year in big games for the most part, and this is going to be his first chance with his new offense to really be tested against a significantly better team. Alabama has one of the best defenses in the nation year in and year out, and this year shouldn’t be an exception. This is why the Gators are such hefty home underdogs, something that we don’t normally see.
