Georgia vs Auburn Game Preview

Why Auburn Will Win

Didn’t you used to be Georgia?

The whining over the performance in the 39-22 win over Kent State was overblown – it was an unfocused effort for a team that played like it was taking a break – but the 26-22 win over Missouri was way too close against a mediocre team.

What’s going wrong?

The pass rush has all of a sudden gone bye bye, star DT Jalen Carter has a knee injury, and the five turnovers after not giving it away in any of the first three games showed just how off the team is.

It still won’t be the Georgia we saw over the first three games, but the turnovers will stop, and the final score will make this seem like it was easy. The Auburn D, though, will keep this from being at total wipeout.
