     War Eagle, everybody! This afternoon Auburn will host the Georgia Bulldogs in a rivalry matchup. Auburn needs this game to stay in contention for one of the better bowl games while Georgia is in the driver’s seat in the SEC East but needs to keep winning. Georgia is coming into this game off a 27–0 thrashing of Missouri while Auburn had a bye week to rest and recuperate from a brutal season thus far.

     The game will kick off at 2:30 PM, Central Time. The game will be nationally televised on CBS. This game and will be played under sunny skies with temperatures in the mid-50s, falling to about 50º after sunset. There is no chance of rain.

     Auburn needs to win this game to end a decade and more of Georgia dominance in the series. Once one of the more evenly matched rivalries in the SEC, Georgia has won much more often in recent years. The Bulldogs have won 4 of the last 5 meetings, 7 of the last 10, and 11 of the last 15.

     As always, feel free to join in and participate in this thread. I will not be available for the play by play this afternoon due to a family obligation but might be able to join in late in the second half. I will miss most or all of this game, as well as the Samford game next weekend, but will be back in the saddle for the Iron Bowl. War Eagle!
