Bash the Bulldogs! (Auburn vs. Georgia Open Thread)
Last time Auburn beat Georgia…
War Eagle, everybody! Amen Corner continues today in Auburn as the top-ranked, undefeated Georgia Bulldogs pay a visit. This is an important game for the Auburn Tigers as they stand at 5–1 in the SEC. Lose this one, and the Tigers will need help from Mississippi State to get to the SEC Title game. Win it, and Auburn will continue to control its own destiny. For Georgia, the pressure is on, despite winning the SEC East title last week. A loss here will damage Georgia’s playoff hopes and knock it out of the top spot. Which team handles the pressure the best will likely come out on top in this one.
Some folks believe that in this game Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn is fighting for his job. Should Auburn lose today, it will mark 4 losses in a row to rival Georgia, 6 losses in the last 7 games, and 10 of the last 12. It has certainly been a dismal mark the past decade. The game will kick off at 2:30 PM Central Standard Time, and it will be nationally televised on CBS.
The cool temperatures of fall have arrived in the deep south, and a jacket is recommended for those attending this game. Skies will be clear with a bright sun hanging low in the southern sky behind the large jumbotron in the stadium. It will be about 63 degrees at kickoff, falling quickly into the 50’s. The sun will set during the third quarter.
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I will not be available for play by play, today, as duty calls. I’ll be returning to action next weekend vs. Louisiana Monroe. War Eagle, and let’s see if Auburn continues a championship run against the Georgia Bulldogs!
