Let's take a look at the 2018 football schedules for both Florida and Georgia.
The SEC East rivals will face off on October 27 next fall. Georgia will look to keep things rolling under Kirby Smart, after this year's run to the College Football Playoff. Florida is getting a fresh start after hiring Dan Mullen away from Mississippi State.
But what other 11 games on the schedule for the Gators and Dawgs? Let's take a look at which team has the harder slate.
Florida's four non-conference opponents are Charleston Southern, Colorado State, Idaho, and Florida State. Georgia, meanwhile, has Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee, UMass, and Georgia Tech.

The Gators get SEC West crossover opponents Mississippi State and LSU. Georgia gets LSU and Auburn. Verdict: these two schedules are very close, but I think Georgia's is slightly more difficult because of the back-to-back games against Auburn and at LSU. Florida brings LSU to Gainesville, and Mississippi State, while projected to be good, should be an easier crossover game than Auburn.
