Two very good SEC rival teams meet in Auburn. Give Auburn the edge in this one. They are playing at home and have a better overall team than Georgia. Georgia’s defense is probably the best in the country but Auburn’s D is probably a top 10 defense. The Tigers clearly have the better offense. They should win this one at home.
