No. 7 Florida plays ULL, then pulls for Auburn
No. 7 Florida plays ULL, then pulls for Auburn to beat Georgia to clinch SEC East
No. 7 Florida has one final shot to get to Atlanta.
And the Gators have no control over the scenario.
Coach Will Muschamp's team, which hosts Louisiana-Lafayette for homecoming Saturday, needs Auburn to upset Georgia later in the day to win the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division and clinch a spot in next month's league title game.
So Florida (8-1) plays, then watches. That could be a recipe for disaster against the Ragin' Cajuns (5-3). But the Gators insist that won't be the case, especially when they recall what happened last year against lower-division Furman.
Florida came out flat last November and fell behind 22-7 at home before rallying. The scare still resonates with players.
The Gators have won 49 consecutive games against teams outside the six Bowl Championship Series conferences.
