The Florida versus Georgia football game is not only a huge match versus two major SEC  teams, it is also one of the biggest tailgates and it has been taking place in Jacksonville, FL since 1933.

It is a day chalked full of excitement, often starting out by getting together with with your family and friends down at the stadium to hang out and get ready for the big game.

When the game finally began, it was a pretty even competition. Although Georgia was winning, Florida kept up.

Towards the fourth quarter, Florida went downhill. Georgia got 13 points up on the scoreboard, and Florida only got 3, with Georgia ending the game at 36-17 as the final score.
