The 2019 Florida Gators (10-2) finished the regular season ranked in the top ten nationwide even though they finished third in the highly competitive SEC. Florida improved their regular season record by one win over 2018 in only the second year under head coach Dan Mullen. The Gator’s only losses this season were against LSU and Georgia, who were both in the SEC Championship and finished ranked in the top five.

The 2019 Virginia Cavaliers (9-4) finished the season in first place in the Coastal Division of the ACC, which put them in the ACC title game against Clemson. Earlier in the season this outcome would have sounded far fetched because Virginia lost three out of four games, dropping road games at Notre Dame, Miami and Louisville. Head coach Bronco Mendenhall led his team to four straight wins in November, including a 39-30 win over a ranked Virginia Tech team. Will they have enough to compete with a top SEC team?
