According to oddsmaker Betonline, Georgia (5-4) opened as a ten-point underdog to Auburn (7-2) for this week’s game at Sanford Stadium.
Georgia has won 8 out of the last 10 meetings between the two schools, including victories in the last two games by a combined score of 47-14. The Dawgs defeated the Tigers 20-13 last year in Jordan-Hare stadium.
The Bulldogs are coming off a last-second 27-24 win over Kentucky in Lexington. Auburn squeaked by Vanderbilt 23-16 at home and may be without SEC-leading rusher Kamryn Pettway, who suffered a hamstring injury Saturday.
The 120th game of the ‘Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry’ kicks off at 3:30 pm on Saturday and is nationally televised by CBS.
