College Football Week 11: #5 Georgia At Auburn

#5 Georgia
Auburn
Mississippi v Georgia
Arkansas v Auburn
Coaching
Winner At this point, you couldn’t blame Mark Richt if he started to game plan for Alabama. If the Bulldogs beat Auburn they will play for the SEC Championship.
Auburn won last week for the first time since Sep. 15, against 1-8 New Mexico State. Gene Chizik still doesn’t have an SEC win this season and with Georgia and then Alabama left on the conference schedule, it’s unknown whether he’ll ever get another.
Offense
Winner Aaron Murray connected on three touchdown passes of at least 40 yards last week, as the Bulldogs overcame a sluggish start and piled up 533 yards against Ole Miss.
Auburn turned to freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace last week. In his first start, Wallace mostly handed off. It will take a more dynamic effort to move the ball against Georgia.
Defense
Winner Georgia forced three turnovers and held Ole Miss to just 234 yards. This unit has some serious playmakers.
Auburn hasn’t done enough to make up for its deficiencies on defense—the Tigers have just one interception on the season (and only 11 total turnovers).
Special Teams
Georgia’s special teams play was above average earlier in the season but has faded recently.
Winner Hey, Auburn fans, at least your special teams play has been good. The Tigers rank 16th in the FEI ratings system.

The Winner Is

Mississippi v Georgia
Winner #5 Georgia
3 out of 4

Georgia knows what’s at stake and should not have any problems with an Auburn team has looked lost all season.

    Philip Rivers went into the 2013 season with questions about his performance hanging over his head, but he answered those questions with ease last year as he enjoyed a brilliant year. Rivers and Chargers head coach Mike McCoy developed an excellent rapport, and that manifested itself in Rivers’ performance.
