Auburn vs. Georgia, Open Thread.
War Eagle, everybody! It’s a college Saturday, and the Tigers are in the friendly confines of Jordan Hare Stadium today, to take on the 25th ranked Georgia Bulldogs in a game that has championship implications. This is a 2:30 PM Central Time kickoff, and the game will be televised nationwide on CBS broadcast TV. The time and channel are a tribute to how far this team has come, from 2-7 a year ago, to 9-1 and 7th in the nation this year!
Georgia is 6-3 on the season, and 4-2 in the SEC. A win over Auburn today would keep them alive in the SEC East division race, and forces Missouri to have win at least one game against Ole Miss or Texas A&M to overtake the Bulldogs. Auburn sits at 5-1 in the SEC, trailing only Alabama in the SEC West. If Auburn beats Georgia and Alabama, it wins the division. A loss to the Bulldogs hands Alabama the crown before the Iron Bowl is even played.
If you’re attending the game, a rain poncho might be good to have. The sky should remain mostly cloudy throughout the game, with the temperature in the mid-60s. The chance of rain is fairly small, but a shower here and there can’t be ruled out. This will be reminiscent of a gray day nine years ago, where a Jason Campbell-Carnell Williams-Ronnie Brown-led Auburn team thrashed Georgia 24-6.
As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be in during the day at times. War Eagle, and let’s hammer those Bulldogs!
