The college football season is heating up! Let’s take a look at the upcoming Georgia vs Auburn matchup.
How to Watch
Georgia remained unbeaten on Saturday, taking down UAB without much issue. Despite that, the 21 points allowed by the Bulldogs could be scrutinized as a result that would have been much less likely to happen in either of the past two seasons. There are concerns about Georgia sleepwalking through a schedule that doesn’t threaten them. If that’s true, the Bulldogs should use this game against Auburn as smelling salts.
Auburn struggled against Texas A&M, losing by 17 points. They’ll have another tough test here with the #1 Bulldogs coming to town. If the Tigers want to play spoiler, they need their offense to bounce back. Three different QBs played for Auburn on Saturday, combining to complete just 9 passes on 23 attempts for 56 yards and no scores. They won’t stand a chance against Georgia if they perform that poorly this week.
It’s a bit surprising to see such a moderate spread for Georgia, despite being on the road. They’ve grown accustomed to seeing massive spreads after dominating every opponent, but their slow start has raised some doubts. That being said, the Bulldogs don’t need to blow out every opponent 60-0. They are still the best team in the country as of now. I’d feel pretty good about taking Georgia to win and cover the spread.
