When: Oct. 20

Where: Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville

Why it's No. 19: The game has moved up on the schedule and that takes a bit of the edge off it, and the whole Steve Spurrier thing has been played out. But these are still two of the three teams most believe have a shot at winning the East.

Series history: South Carolina has won only six of the 32 games played by the two teams, but three have come under Spurrier, including the last two in a row. Spurrier likes to tell people he went 0-4 against Tebow and 3-0 against the other Gator quarterbacks.

Rivalry on a scale of 1-100: 82. It’s still an intense rivalry and the fact that South Carolina has won two straight makes it huge for Will Muschamp.
