The Georgia Bulldogs clinched the SEC East on Saturday. And now they know when they will take on Auburn next week.
The SEC announced the Bulldogs and Tigers will face off in the Deep South’s Oldest rivalry next week at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Georgia upset Auburn last year in Athens, winning 13-7. Georgia did not score an offensive touchdown in the 2016 game.
Georgia is 9-0 and ranked as the No. 1 team in the country per the College Football Playoff rankings. No. 2 Alabama took on No. 19 LSU on Saturday. Georgia took down South Carolina, 24-10, on Saturday. That result, coupled with Ole Miss knocking off Kentucky, gave Georgia the SEC East crown.
Dating back to 2006, Georgia is 9-2 in the rivalry game. The two years Auburn was able to beat Georgia, it ended up playing for the national championship. Auburn beat Texas A&M, 42-27, on Saturday.
The game will be one of two SEC games next week that featured top- ranked SEC teams. The other is Alabama-Mississippi State, which kicks off at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. Some other big games with College Football Playoff implications are No. 3 Notre Dame visiting No. 10 Miami and No. 8 TCU playing N0. 5 Oklahoma. Georgia has wins over two teams ranked in the Top 25 of the College Football Playoff rankings, having beaten both Notre Dame and Mississippi State. A third ranked win would certainly help their already impressive résumé.
