Challenges for Auburn

Auburn has been somewhat of a disappointment this season. The Tigers aren’t a bad team, they just aren’t as good as many observers thought they’d be. If this game were being played in Auburn the Tigers might have an outside shot at pulling out a win. But playing in Athens with the Bulldog’s stable of running backs and precision passer Jake Fromm picking them apart, it won’t be easy.

Challenges for Georgia

Georgia experienced an emotional victory last weekend in Lexington, whether they realize it themselves or not. While Auburn is a little down this season they are still a dangerous team to be reckoned with. Neither team has forgotten their two meetings in 2017.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 7 pm ET (6 pm CT),and can be seen on ESPN.
