Saturday's Florida-Georgia game could decide who gets into the SEC Championship Game. If nothing else, the loser will suffer their second loss and fall out of contention for the College Football Playoff.

It's a high-stakes game, and Gators legend Tim Tebow couldn't be more excited for it.

Taking to social media this week, the SEC Network analyst got himself pumped up for the game. He assured everyone that his show, SEC Nation, would be in Jacksonville for the big game at TIAA Bank Field.

"Florida. Georgia. Jacksonville this weekend and SEC Nation will be there, yes. Not Georgia-Florida, [it 's] Florida-Georgia. In Jax. Duval. Let's go. Show up... Florida-Georgia baby let's go! Show up for SEC Nation. Come on!"

During Tebow's four years at Florida, the Gators went 3-1 against the arch-rival Bulldogs.

His first start against Georgia was a losing effort in 2007 that ultimately cost the Gators a spot in the SEC Championship Game. But he got his revenge against the Bulldogs in 2008, leading Florida to a 49-10 blowout en route to an SEC title and his second national championship.

History repeated itself in 2009, when Tebow and the Gators blew out the Bulldogs yet again in a 49-17 win.

In the nine years since Tebow's last game, the two sides are nearly even. Georgia holds a narrow 5-4 edge in the last nine years, but has won back-to-back games against Florida.

Between this game and next week's mega-showdown between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, the winner of this game could very well find themselves in control of their College Football Playoff destiny.

It's a big one, and it'll almost certainly be a good one.
