It’s the latest sign of how far in stature Georgia and Auburn have fallen this season.
Georgia’s visit to Auburn on Nov. 14 is slated for a noon kickoff, the SEC announced on Monday. The game will be broadcast on CBS.
The two programs are used to playing night or 3:30 games on most years. But this is not most years: Georgia is 5-3 heading into this Saturday’s game against Kentucky – another noon game – while Auburn is 4-4 going into Saturday’s game at Texas A&M.
The last time Georgia and Auburn met at Jordan-Hare Stadium the result was a classic, though one Georgia fans would rather forget. A hail-mary throw from Nick Marshall was tipped by Georgia and Auburn receiver Ricardo Louis received it for the game-winning touchdown. Last year Georgia routed Auburn, 34-7.
