3. Nov. 13, 2010 - South Carolina 36 Florida 14
Why It Makes The List
South Carolina had never beaten Florida in Gainesville and the Gamecocks had never made the trip to the Sunshine State with so much on the line. The game served as a de facto SEC East championship, with the winner earning a berth in Atlanta for the conference title game. Florida had scheduled a "Blue-Out" for the game and things looked good early for the Gators when Andre Dubose returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown. After that, it was all Gamecocks, as South Carolina scored the next 29 points. Marcus Lattimore ran for 212 yards on 40 carries and three touchdowns and the Gamecocks clinched their first division championship in football since joining the SEC in 1992.
Why It's Not Higher
The Gamecocks were pummeled 56-17 in the SEC Championship by eventual national champion Auburn, taking some of the shine off of the Eastern Division title. Florida, not nearly the Gators of previous seasons, finished 4-4 in conference play.
