Florida Projected for BCS Bowl Spot; Georgia Isn't

A report says the Gators, despite that loss to the Bulldogs, will get the SEC's other spot. The BCS matchups will be announced Sunday, December 2.

It's unofficial, but a leading online publication already is speculating that Florida, not Georgia, will get the SEC's remaining BCS bowl spot in 2012.

Bleacher Report (published by Turner Broadcasting System) has projected in a Sunday posting (December 2) that the Gators will be matched against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl, one of four BCS bowls outside of the title game. That projection would leave Georgia, SEC runner-up, out of the BCS picture and settling for a lesser bowl.

Alabama, which won the SEC title Saturday, will be matched against Notre Dame for the BCS title. No conference can have more than two teams in the BCS bowls.

Georgia was No. 3 and Florida No. 4 in the final regular-season BCS standings. Now, the Bulldogs have two losses and could drop in the rankings. Florida has just one loss -- yes, to Georgia -- and could move up.

The BCS will announce its matchups Sunday evening (December 2) on ESPN.

UGA should go to the Gator or Chick-Fil-A Bowl...they had their chance. Florida will go to the Sugar Bowl - well deserved Gators!
