A year ago, The Loveliest Village on the Plains was buzzing with the excitement of Saturday’s impending edition of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. The Tigers took that excitement and absolutely destroyed the top-ranked team in the country, 40-17. It was complete obliteration, and maybe the most complete game that Auburn’s played against a highly-ranked opponent ever.
Fast forward three weeks and Georgia got revenge in the SEC Championship. What’s worse is that the loss in Atlanta allowed both Georgia and Alabama to reach the Playoff, where they met for the national championship. Vomit.
This season, the feelings are a little different. Auburn just came off of a huge comeback win over Texas A&M, but for 55 minutes, things looked bleak. Meanwhile, Georgia controlled Kentucky to win the SEC East and advance to the SEC Championship for the second straight year.
Last year, the Bulldogs were undefeated and coming off of a clinching victory in the division when they traveled to Auburn, and so maybe the Tigers can catch them napping once again. Maybe Georgia’s a little too powerful for an Auburn team that doesn’t have much on the offensive line. We’ll have to see. It’s a Saturday night between the hedges, and it’s not going to get much tougher than that.
