GAINESVILLE, FL (RNN) - No. 7 Florida is looking to extend its home game winning streak while Georgia is looking to upset another Top 25 team in Tuesday's matchup of the longtime rival schools.

The Gators (13-2, 2-0 SEC) have won 24 straight home games, tied for the team's all-time record. In addition, Florida has won the previous 11 games at home against the Bulldogs (8-6, 2-0).

Georgia is looking for another major upset after taking down the No. 21 Missouri Tigers in overtime last week, snapping the Tigers' 26-home game winning streak - the longest in the nation.

The Gators are averaging 72.7 points per game and allowing an average 60.3. The Bulldogs are averaging 71.2 points per game but are allowing 68.4.

Casey Prather, who leads Florida with an average 17 points per game, will not play Tuesday night due to a bruised knee. Scottie Wilbekin comes in second with an average 12.9 points per game but leads with an average 3.7 assists and 2.1 steals per game.

Charles Mann leads Georgia with 14.1 points, 2.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Kenny Gaines follows up with an average 12.2 points per game.

Tipoff at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center is at 7 p.m. ET and will air on ESPNU.
