Will the SEC Championship Game Be Set This Weekend

Will the SEC Championship Game Be Set This Weekend: We know for sure that the SEC East champion will be set from the winner of the South Carolina-Florida game. Beyond that, the game is full of all kinds of storylines. Can South Carolina win its first East title? Can Steve Spurrier beat his alma mater to do it? Will Florida come all the way back from that three-game losing streak to win the East? Is the three quarterback system really viable against anyone but Vandy?

My biggest questions is this: can South Carolina's defense stop Florida? The Gamecock defense fell apart in the second half against Kentucky back on October 16, and aside from its game against Vandy, it hasn't been the same since. It allowed some big plays to Tennessee's otherwise putrid offense, and Arkansas shredded it last week. That unit is reeling.

Will the SEC Championship Game Be Set This Weekend: Its saving grace is that it's very stout against the run. It's not just a "why run when you can throw?" kind of deal; the Gamecock defense is second in the conference in fewest yards allowed per rushing attempt. Florida, as always under Urban Meyer, tries to set the tone with the run to open up the pass. That plays into the strength of the Carolina defense. Plus, big special teams and defensive plays against Vanderbilt last week masked the fact that John Brantley had a pretty lousy game. He's not coming into this match up red hot or anything.
