Jarvis Jones. The only thing the All-American junior linebacker did against Florida was record 13 tackles (12 solo), 4.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles (including the key one at the end). That’s all he did.
WHO’S HOT, PART II
Georgia Southern. The Eagles are back atop the Division I-AA standings after their triple-overtime win at Chattanooga. If Georgia Southern defeats Applachian State on Saturday, they can wrap up the Southern Conference title.
Will Muschamp. The second-year Florida coach is now 0-6 in the big rivalry game in Jacksonville, Fla., after going 0-4 as a safety with Georgia (1991-94).
RANKING THE BIG FOUR
1. Georgia (7-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference). On paper, the Bulldogs are a lock to win the East.
2. Clemson (7-1, 4-1 AtlanticCoast Conference). Sammy Watkins is back, and that’s bad news for Tigers’ opponents.
3. South Carolina (7-2, 5-2 SEC). Time for the jazz duo of Miles Davis (Kenny Miles, Mike Davis) to step up.
4. Georgia Tech (3-5, 2-3 ACC). Even the school’s athletic director is jumping ship.
