Georgia football fans get a preview of the upcoming game each week with the Marlow’s Matchup — presented by Marlow’s Tavern. DawgNation’s Brandon Adams and former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb break down the opponent and discuss how Kirby Smart, Jake Fromm and the Bulldogs might go all the way to a national championship this season. On this edition of the Marlow’s Matchup, the guys discuss what to expect when UGA takes on Auburn.
Former UGA All-American discusses key factors for win against Auburn
Auburn hosts Georgia Saturday for the 123rd edition of what is known as the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.” However, there’s more than just heritage and tradition at stake for UGA.
The Bulldogs could take a significant step toward a return to the College Football Playoff by clinching the SEC East with a win on Saturday (or a Florida loss). Auburn doesn’t have as much on the line in regards to postseason implications having already lost twice, but the Tigers are nonetheless eager to prove they’re still among the nation’s elite, and that the two previous losses are more the product of a difficult schedule than they are a floundering program.
With all that in mind, the atmosphere is expected to be intense, and the path to victory will be difficult to travel. That’s the subject of this edition of the Marlow’s Matchup — which was recorded live on Thursday at the Marlow’s Tavern in Brookhaven with DawgNation Daily host Brandon Adams and former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb.
Some of the topics covered include…
- How UGA handles a hostile road environment given the fact the Bulldogs lost at Auburn in 2017 and still haven’t earned a win in an SEC West venue since Kirby Smart became coach in 2016
- What UGA can do to disrupt Auburn freshman quarterback Bo Nix
- And how the Bulldogs can dial up more “explosive” runs
