Comparing Meyer and Spurrier at Florida

Meyer is 19-6 against Top 25 opponents at Florida, while Spurrier is 7-15 against nationally ranked foes at South Carolina.

But a colleague of mine asked a fair question.

How does what Meyer has done at Florida against the best teams compare to what Spurrier did against the best teams during his 12 seasons in Gainesville?

Here you go:
Spurrier compiled a 44-25-1 record (.636) against Top 25 foes while he was at Florida.
In his first five seasons, Spurrier was 13-12-1 (.519) against Top 25 teams.
In his final five seasons, Spurrier was 21-11 (.656) against Top 25 teams.
