Blast the Bulldogs! (Auburn vs Georgia, Open Thread.)

Tigers hope to dominate at home.
(AP Photo Curtis Compton.)

     War Eagle, everybody! This afternoon Auburn will host the Georgia Bulldogs in a rivalry matchup. Auburn needs this game to stay in contention for one of the better bowl games, while Georgia is in the drivers seat in the SEC East, but needs to keep winning. Georgia is coming into this game off a 27-0 thrashing of Missouri, while Auburn had a bye week to rest and recuperate from a brutal season thus far.

     This game will kick off at 2:30 PM, Central Time. The game will be nationally televised on CBS. This game will be played under sunny skies, with temperatures in the mid-50s, falling to about 50 after sunset. There is no chance of rain.

     Auburn needs to win this game to end a decade and more of Georgia dominance in this series. Once most of the more evenly matched rivalries in the SEC, Georgia has won much more often in recent years. The Bulldogs have won 4 of the last 5 meetings, 7 of the last 10, and 11 of the last 15.

     As always, feel free to join in and participate in this thread. I will not be available for the play by play this afternoon, but might be able to join in late in the second half, due to a family obligation. I will miss most or all of this game, as well as the Samford game next weekend, but will be back in the saddle for the Iron Bowl. War Eagle!

COMMENTARY: There’s just one thing left to do – win out

Georgia Preview: I Predict Fun

Once again, Auburn is in the premiere game of the weekend. SEC Nation isn’t in town because they’ve already been to Auburn. College Gameday isn’t in town because they’ve already been to two Auburn games this year. But the fact of the matter is that Auburn is a Top-12 team playing their fourth Top-10 team of the season. Did you read that? Four. Yeah, and there’s another one coming. But this week it’s Georgia.

The Georgia Bulldogs are 8-1 and somehow ranked #4 in the latest CFB Playoff rankings. They are hanging their hats on a 6-point win over Notre Dame and 7-point win over Florida. The Notre Dame win seemed okay at the time. But Notre Dame is Notre Dame and they were eventually blown out by Michigan. You’ll remember that Michigan needed overtime to beat Army this year.

Georgia also won their annual neutral site game with the Florida Gators by a score of 24-17. Surely that means the Dawgs have the upper hand on Auburn, considering the Tigers 9-point loss in the Swamp. Yeah, um, I think we all know and agree that Auburn’s day in the Swamp is 1000% different than what the Dawgs saw in Jacksonville.

It could be said that had Auburn played Florida (or LSU for that matter) at a neutral site, without the things that make freshmen throw three interceptions, Auburn would’ve come out on top. Auburn is and was the better team, capable of beating a Florida team that is as bland and SEC Easty as they come. It was just the perfect storm for them that day.

But all that said, the point is you’ve got Georgia somehow sitting at the 4th best team in the nation because they’ve beaten two teams with numbers next to their names. It’s not like they are low numbers or anything, though.

Wait, there’s something I’m forgetting. What is it? Oh YES! The Georgia Bulldogs lost to the South Carolina Gamecocks at home as well. The 4th best team in the nation has a loss to a team that now has six losses, and will likely end the season with eight losses.

Since that happy day for the Gamecocks, they have lost to Florida, lost to Tennessee by 20, beat Vandy, and lost to Appalachian State. Georgia couldn’t beat South Carolina in Athens, but Appalachian State could in Columbia? Hmmm…

But it’s more than that day. After the loss to South Carolina the Dawgs backed it up with a scoreless half against Kentucky. Yeah, the Dawgs didn’t sniff a point until the 3rd quarter against one of the worst teams in the SEC. And again, it was in Athens. Then they beat Florida in that blah neutral site game that literally only two fanbases cares about. Then they beat Missouri 27-0. Big win, right? Missouri had just lost to Kentucky and Vanderbilt but almost the same score. Big wins. Really turned it around. Top 4.

Georgia’s defense seems to be one of the best in the nation, but they have faced, at his point, the 87th best offenses in the nation. They aren’t shutting out juggernauts. They are shutting out Kentucky and Missouri and losing to South Carolina.

The Georgia offense has averaged 20.5 points in their last four games. Do you know what happens to 20.5 points when it meets Derrick Brown and the Auburn defense? At worst, it shrinks to half its size. At worst. The truth is that Jake Fromm and his receivers have been mediocre. They don’t have the two-headed running game they normally have, and they are relying on the recruiting stars by some guys’ names. That doesn’t work forever.

But going into this weekend’s GAME TO END ALL WORLD HUNGER (if they can make up dumb names for every LSU-Alabama game, I can too), the question will be how Auburn’s offense will hold up against what has actually been a pretty good Georgia defense. Bo Nix has admittedly been shaky on the road in hostile environments against teams currently ranked #1 and #11. The offense has been unable to take advantage of what the defense has given them, and by that I mean the Auburn defense.

LSU just scored 46 on Alabama. LSU scored 23 against Auburn. That should’ve been enough, but Auburn’s offense was just 3 points short.

Oh wait, what’s that? The game is AT Auburn this week? Oh dang, nevermind. We got this.

Auburn really hasn’t had a true, big home game this year. We had a month off, and then we had Ole Miss on a cold night. This is what Auburn fans have been waiting for. The SEC championship is pretty much gone, but honestly, if the Tigers win out, they have a claim to the College Football Playoff that’s just as strong as any team out there outside of LSU and maybe Ohio State,

That starts this weekend. Georgia’s true road games this year have been Vandy and Tennessee. That’s it. I’m serious. They have barely even heard one fan say one negative thing towards them. No mama jokes. Nothing. They have literally not even experienced the “ho” in hostile. It’s a joke, actually, but we’ll get into scheduling in a later Bloglespot.

Fromm and his receivers are nothing these defensive backs have never seen. They did a better job against Burrow and LSU than any team all season. It will show again on Saturday. The defense will be the story. The offense will play like it has at home so far this season.

Bo Nix looks rested, educated, and experienced as he does enough to make people wonder why Georgia’s even in the Top 10.

Remember the last three weeks of 2017? It’s almost the exact same situation. Georgia and Alabama have to come through Auburn to take what they want. Spoiler alert: these three games will go the exact same, except this time the undeserving actually get what they deserve.

Auburn, the crowd, the defense, and yes, the offense beats Georgia. It will be fun.

Auburn 31, Georgia 14

Week 12 Predictions: Sneaky Saturday

Well, despite fun things happening on the field, Week 11 wasn’t very kind. Easily the worst week of the season. I was fine with one miss, but the others were basically dumb upsets. Get off me.

Last week: 4-5 (44.4%)
This week: 0-0 (0.0%)
Overall: 86-22 (79.6%)

Week 12 should be a little easier. Without some dumb stuff, there’s really only one game that’s tough to pick.

11/16

Alabama at Mississippi State – Alabama didn’t look great in their loss to LSU. Tua was good enough to play, but that defense. Now that the Tide has the hapless Maroons in front of them. Sure, Mississippi State may think they smell blood in the water, given that the game is in Starkville, but Tua or not, Alabama will win easily.

Alabama 38, Mississippi State 10

Florida at Missouri – The Gators will look sloppy. They’ll make you wonder how they are still ranked in the Top 15. They’ll remind you of what they’ve been for the last few years. But they’ll win.

Florida 28, Missouri 24

Kentucky at Vanderbilt – Kentucky showed promise. Vanderbilt has looked awful almost all year. The Wildcats have moved on to basketball, but are reeling after a loss to Evansville, so they’ll need this win to lift their spirits.

Kentucky 21, Vanderbilt 10

LSU at Ole Miss – The Rebels will be jacked. It will feel like Auburn basketball at South Alabama. They’ll get excited for about a quarter until LSU realizes they at least need to try a little bit.

LSU 45, Ole Miss 20

South Carolina at Texas A&M – The Gamecocks are probably done after their lost to Appalachian State last week. And by “done,” I mean why even bother the rest of the year. The Aggies still only have three losses: Clemson, Alabama, and Auburn. They aren’t terrible.

Texas A&M 34, South Carolina 17

Georgia at Auburn – Check back later for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: feline>canine.

Other Games of Note

Minnesota at Iowa – The Gophers are high. The Jayhawks are blah. It would be fitting for Minnesota to think they’ve done all they have to do this season after last week’s big win, but I think they are tad more disciplined than that.

Minnesota 27, Iowa 7

Oklahoma at Baylor – Oklahoma has looked a tad suspect recently, but they are far and away better than anything Baylor has played this season. The Bears dreams are over.

Oklahoma 48, Baylor 20

Now that you know who will win, head on over to the 2019 War Blogle Pick ’em and get your picks in. There will be weekly prizes and an overall winner at the end of the season. It’s easy. Do it.

The End of an Era!

Auburn will play Georgia in November, for the last time.
(AP Photo/Brynn Anderson)

     War Eagle, everybody! This week, the Auburn Tigers will host the Georgia Bulldogs at Jordan Hare Stadium. Georgia needs this win to stay in control of the SEC Eastern Division, and in the college football playoff picture. Auburn needs to win, or likely miss out on a New Years Six bowl bid. Most importantly, Auburn has regularly been taking it on the chin from Georgia, most years since 2005. The Tiger record against the Bulldogs since that year is 3-11. That slide needs to stop!

     Auburn’s remaining schedule is Georgia, Samford and Alabama. Beating Samford would get Auburn to 8-4, where Auburn has rested for much of this decade at the end of the regular season. Wins over Georgia and Alabama would make the season great. Auburn and Georgia have played in November every single season possible since 1936. That will change, next season as the game will be played on October 10th. I do not like the move of this game. Folks were complaining about having to play Georgia and Alabama on the road in the same year. Next year, we get LSU and Alabama back to back. That is not an improvement.

     When Auburn has the ball, it will go against the best rushing defense in the SEC. Georgia has not allowed a rushing touchdown all season, and the Bulldogs have no problem bringing as many defenders down in the box as it takes to prevent the other team from marching the ball down the field on the ground. Here is hoping that the stupid Auburn “run it up the middle” with 4 wide receivers in the game play is retired from the playbook, this week.

     Like Auburn, Georgia would prefer to run the ball. An ideal Georgia game is suffocating the opponent on defense, then running clock. Georgia would be perfectly happy with a 10-3 victory in this game. Auburn must have success on first down against this bunch, and the best hope for the Tigers is to connect on short passes on early downs.

     There were questions a couple of weeks ago about Auburn fan support at the game. Frigid temperatures and a tepid ballgame against Ole Miss ran a lot of fans out of the stadium, and home early. Here is hoping that those fans learned their lesson, and will dress warmly for this game.

     This will be another cool game at Jordan Hare Stadium, though about 10 degrees warmer than Auburn’s last outing at home. Temperatures in the mid 50s are the order of the day, falling to about 50 after sunset in the 3rd quarter. There is no chance of rain. We will have our usual Trackemtigers.com Open Thread up and running for this one. This game will kick off at 2:30 PM, Central Standard Time, and will be nationally televised on CBS.

A look at other SEC games this weekend, after the jump!

     Alabama kicks off the early action at 11:00 AM visiting Mississippi State. Normally, this is a hostile venue for anybody, but the Bulldogs have been struggling lately. I expect an easy Alabama in in Starkville.

     Florida visits Missouri early this week as well. At 5-4, Missouri needs 1 more win to go bowling for the 3rd year in a row. They are unlikely to get it, as a fired-up Florida team will come in needing to keep pace with Georgia to keep their remaining slim division hopes alive.

     Georgia visits Auburn at 2:30 PM in the Deep South’s Oldest Football Rivalry. The loser is out of any playoff talk, and Georgia still has a division title on the line in this one.

     Kentucky is at Vanderbilt at 2:30 PM as well. Vandy has already been eliminated from the bowl picture, and Kentucky needs 2 wins in the next 3 weeks to qualify. I think the Wildcats have superior team strength in this one, but can they get the quarterbacking they need to win this one on the road?

     Evening action begins at 6:00 PM when LSU visits Ole Miss. The Tigers will have to guard against a let-down in this one, but Ole Miss proved vulnerable to the short passing game a couple of weeks ago, and LSU should move the ball with ease on this defense.

     South Carolina visits Texas A&M at 6:30 PM. Normally I’d pick the home team in this sort of matchup, but the stakes are a little different in this one. South Carolina badly needs a 5th win to stay alive in bowl consideration, while Texas A&M has already clinched bowl eligibility. The Gamecock defense has enough bite to make this game interesting, if the Aggies aren’t ready to play.

     Teams taking the weekend off are Tennessee and Arkansas.

College Football TV Broadcast Schedule for Saturday, November 16, 2019

The CBS Game of the Week will broadcast the 124th meeting of Auburn versus Georgia. There have been so many thrilling and dramatic games over the 127 -year history of the series, and this year’s edition will just add to the mystique that is the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.

The two programs mirror each other in a lot of ways. Both like to be downhill running teams and both rank in the top five of the SEC in total offense. However, this edition of the rivalry could well be “the battle of the defenses” as both teams field two of the best in the league. The Tigers rank third in the SEC in scoring defense (17.4 points per game) while the Bulldogs are second nationally in scoring defense (10.1 ppg).

The matchup should be worthy of its selection as the CBS Game of the Week. Fans can expect a nailbiting thriller, scheduled for kickoff at 2:30 CT. Those attending the game can expect almost perfect game-day weather with little to no chance of precipitation and temperatures starting out in the low 60’s at kickoff and falling into the  40’s by the end of the fourth quarter. For those who will watch the game on television, we have prepared our usual broadcast schedule of Saturday’s games.

Game times are Central Standard, and all SEC games as well as those involving Top 25 teams are underlined. Games on ESPN/ABC can be viewed by clicking here, and games on ESPN3 can be viewed by clicking on this link.

Acid Reign will have his Open Thread up Saturday morning so feel free to join in the discussion on the thread and add your thoughts about the game as it unfolds. War Eagle and …
