Here’s what The Telegraph writers think will happen in Saturday’s game between Georgia and Florida.

Jason Butt: As long as Georgia doesn’t beat itself it should roll to an eighth win of the season. The Bulldogs are the more talented team and should be able to assert its will defensively. Jake Fromm has become more and more comfortable as the team’s quarterback and should play a fine game. Prediction: Georgia 27, Florida 13

Daniel Shirley: Georgia has blown out Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Missouri in SEC play. Add Florida to that list as the Bulldogs finally get back on top against the Gators. Prediction: Georgia 42, Florida 10

Bill Shanks: Georgia will get revenge for a 27-year run (six wins to 21 losses) that has not been pretty. Florida will have trouble scoring on Georgia’s tremendous defense, and unlike last year the Bulldogs will do damage on the ground when they have the ball against the Gators. Prediction: Georgia 37 Florida 13.

Wilson Alexander: I’m making this pick here purely because I imagine everyone else is picking Georgia. The Bulldogs are better. They are rightfully a 13.5-point or whatever favorite. But Florida always seems to have Georgia’s number. The Gators could very well have it again this year. Prediction: Florida 24, Georgia 20

Jordan Hill: There’s nothing these Gators would like more than to ruin the Bulldogs’ hopes of a national title run, but the Florida offense has shown no evidence they could pull the upset. I predict Florida puts a real scare into Georgia in Jacksonville, but ultimately the Bulldogs sneak out of the Sunshine State with a win. Prediction: Georgia 31, Florida 23
