The No. 4-ranked Georgia Bulldogs take on the No. 12-ranked Auburn Tigers. The game is set for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff and will air on CBS.
The last time these two foes met in Jordan-Hare Stadium, the Tigers took down the then No. 1-ranked Bulldogs by a score of 40-17. But Georgia ultimately got the last laugh, as the Bulldogs went on to beat Auburn in the SEC Championship game.
When these two teams met in Athens last season, Georgia came away with a 27-10 win against Auburn.
This game will have stakes on the SEC East race, as the Bulldogs only need a win tomorrow to clinch the division. Georgia could also have its ticket punched to Atlanta with a Florida loss. If Georgia does advance to Atlanta, it would be the first time in program history that it has won the SEC East in three consecutive seasons.

What Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said about Auburn
Kirby Smart on Auburn:
“Tremendous program, tremendous football team. They got two really tough losses in which they played two really good football teams and played them right down to the wire. But they’ve got a tremendous program. Gus has done a great job. He’s playing with a freshman quarterback who I think is going to be a really talented player in this league for a long time. He’s been in some really tough games already, and he’s played really well. And when you look across the board, opening with Oregon, who’s one of the best teams in the country, to beat those guys and be a true freshman and go out there and do that is really hard to do. Their defense speaks for itself.”
Kirby Smart on Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown:
“Derrick is an extremely good athlete. I mean, first of all, when you put athleticism in a person’s body that is that size, I mean, he was a great basketball player. He’s a great athlete. You can see him when he gets — he has ball skills. He gets interceptions. He gets fumbles. He’s around the ball, and he’s explosive. You got that kind of twitch and you’re as big as he is, it’s hard to block, and he’s been a very disruptive player in this league for a long time.”
Kirby Smart on the speed Anthony Schwartz:
“You try and know where he is. They do a good job of putting him in different locations. They don’t leave him in one spot. He’s not always the feature guy. Sometimes he’s the decoy, and sometimes he’s not the decoy. And you don’t really ever know which one he’s going to be. And he’s very explosive. I think awareness is how to handle it, because we got the players we got; they got the players they got. And nobody in the country is as fast as that guy. So nobody’s going to be able to match up with him and just run with him. You gotta have ways to put people over top of him. You gotta have ways to protect against him. You gotta have ways to get your hands on him. They’re going to get him the ball. You gotta go tackle him. Good thing we’re not in a track race against him. We gotta play football against him, and he’s a really good football player.”
