Auburn’s football fans guide to the home game against Georgia

0


This is a big deal, all of you. Fresh off their wild victory at LSU, the Tigers will host the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs inside Jordan-Hare this Saturday, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

After the Tigers’ tight call against Georgia State and last week’s thriller in Baton Rouge, Auburn looks to build on the momentum with his toughest test yet in head coach Brian Harsin’s first season. .

Several rules for slowing the spread of the virus remain in place, so be sure to study them below and on the helpful Auburn Gameday website.

Here’s what you can expect in Auburn this Saturday, including COVID-19 2021 restrictions.

PLACE: Jordan-Lièvre Stadium

TICKETS: EXHAUSTED

It’s been a three-week challenge, starting with the loss at Penn State and, yes, including a courageous victory over Georgia State at home. Last week’s win over LSU answered many questions about the team’s competitive spirit and Bo Nix’s status as the team’s top playmaker under center with his incredible game. improvisation.

But can the Tiger offense support that type of play, and can Nix continue to grab his bag of tricks to escape the dominant Georgia defense on Saturday?

The Kirby Smart team has limited the competition so far. The most difficult test came in week one against Clemson, perhaps exposing some offensive limits for the Bulldogs, especially given their quarterback situation.

Can Auburn’s defense make enough saves to keep Georgia in check for 60 minutes?
