It took Georgia a bit to get going and win over UAB (49-21), and it hasn’t been completely annihilating these inferior opponents by a factor of a bajillion, so now it’s cool to say that someone other than the two-time defending champion should be No. 1.
Georgia, it’s almost as if the season never happened. Despite having the greatest scoring defense in the SEC and the nation’s 17th-best total defense, it appears as though everything has come crashing down.
Hopefully, this cobbled-together defense can slow down the SEC’s worst passing offense, and the SEC’s second-worst rushing defense can’t do much to stop this doggedly determined offense.
Despite losing against Texas A&M by a score of 27-10 last week, Auburn was still able to keep things close.
There were no turnovers and a lack of offensive momentum, but the ten penalties were costly. At home, if the Tigers have to be clean – which is feasible; the opening against UMass was almost error-free – and the offense can keep controlling the pace, this can get intriguing.
Quick action is required here. The state of Georgia is struggling to make a strong initial impression. In the first quarter, the offense has struggled, and in the second quarter, the defense has struggled.
The Tiger defense has been solid after bending and has been especially effective on third downs. If the passing game can do anything on a continuous basis, this team has a great chance of winning.
Because no one saw it turn on the jets against UAB (if they even watched that game), Georgia hasn’t looked quite like its regular dominant selves from the previous two seasons.
Once again, people seem to have forgotten that Georgia went through a slump at about the same time last year, and that it still hasn’t managed to put up 28 points in the first quarter for no apparent reason.
After a close twenty minutes of competition, the slower but steadier side (at least for this squad) will emerge victorious.
Auburn is about to make a turnaround under Hugh Freeze; they are indeed better than the 2022 version of the team. However, it might lack the offensive needed to mount a comeback this week.
