CBS Sports has two SEC games on Saturday including the intriguing Florida at Alabama matchup in primetime. The afternoon game will pit Tennessee at LSU. Unfortunately, one of the worst announcers in Craig Bolerjack will call Vols-Tigers in Baton Rouge, but one good thing is the fact that the lovely Sam Ryan will be the sideline reporter.
Here’s the CBS press release complete with Gary Danielson previewing Saturday’s SEC action.

This rivalry has been born out of greatness. The two teams, their level of play and their excellence on the field has forced each other into a rivalry. They are not natural rivals. It’s become the premier rivalry in college football because of their excellence of play over the last five years.(John Brantley Key for Florida Success): Trey Burton, the young freshman phenom, who is basically taking on the role that Tim Tebow played in the past, is an important part of the game. But he is the second phase. If John Brantley doesn’t play great it doesn’t matter how good Trey Burton is. Florida can’t win.(On Greg McElroy ): I continue to marvel at how Greg McElroy finds a way to get it done, whether he starts out quickly and leads the team or has a great fourth quarter to lead the team. Last year in the SEC Championship game it was his scrambling in the pocket that led the team. The guy just finds a way to lead the team and it seems likes he is not one-dimensional. He’s stereotyped as being just a thinking man’s quarterback but he seems to find a lot of different ways to help the team. He is a very dangerous college quarterback.(End of the Road?): This is not the end of the season for either team. This is a cross-divisional game and the loser doesn’t necessarily die. They can re-surface and play each other again because each team can absorb a loss and still get to Atlanta.
I have linkage coming up.
