For Georgia, their spot within the SEC Championship is already badured.

On the opposite facet of issues, not solely would an Auburn win nearly baduredly flip the Iron Bowl into an SEC Championship play-in sport, however that is basically a must-win sport if the Tigers need to have any hope of constructing the playoffs.

They’ll should be on the prime of their sport to maneuver the ball towards Georgia’s stout protection, which is fourth within the nation in yards per play allowed.
“You have to figure out ways to do it. You have to figure out a way to make explosive plays,” Malzahn mentioned. “That’s the challenge. When they can stop the run and still play two safeties, it’s tough. You have to be balanced. The more talented a defensive team is, the more important it is to be balanced.”
Put all of it collectively, and you’ve got two groups tough to separate, as No. 1 crew within the nation stands as only a three-point favourite on the highway.
