Deep South's Oldest Rivalry.....5 of 6

Georgia played the best game they have played in maybe 3 seasons Saturday against Auburn. Auburn was probably the best team Georgia has beat on their 8 game winning streak and by far the best opponent since they lost to South Carolina. The game started with each team scoring on their first possession and then the game took a turn after Georgia went up 14-7. First though, Michael Bennett is turning into a playmaker for Georgia at receiver and is only a RS freshman. Crowell had one of his two fumbles at mid-field and then on the next play Auburn returned the favor fumbling it right back to Georgia. From there Georgia ran away with the game and this one was over at halftime 35-7. I thought Georgia being favored by 13 to start the week was crazy, but I guess there's a reason why Vegas keeps making money. I know a lot of people put money on Auburn to cover that. Georgia should open as a 15-20 point favorite this week as well, but this game always scares me. Do not overlook Kentucky to get ready for the state championship at Georgia Tech.

Auburn was one dimensional so Georgia could sit back and only defense the pass, and without a running game Auburn could not get anything going offensively. Gary Danielson mentioned it on the broadcast, but Georgia has great athletes and an attitude on defense that has been missing for long time on this team. Whether players or coaches wanted to admit it the game from last year definitely was used for motivation for this team. The game last year turned ugly and Georgia wanted to come out and return the favor. Aaron Murray is slowly becoming one of the best UGA quarterbacks in the school's long history. Georgia now has their chance to play back-to-back games in Atlanta with a win over Kentucky this coming Saturday in Athens. That makes 5 out of 6 now for Georgia in the series, but I would take Auburn's one win right now, as there win helped them continue towards winning the National Championship last season. Great picture below! Come on Dawgs get two more then make your trip to SEC title game worth it.

To make the night better, Boise lost to TCU, so that should eliminate the Boise to National Championship discussions. Not sure who watched that game, but I must say that TCU was called for pass interference on a 4th down play for Boise that was one of the worst calls I have seen to keep a game going this season in college football. I found it odd too that TCU is leaving the conference at the end of this season. I realize that's crazy to assume as the game moves too fast, but nonetheless Boise missed a FG, so there is a football god watching over.
