In this game, Georgia will face Auburn in real time over the internet via live streaming.
The Bulldogs and Tigers will square off in the SEC Game of the Week on CBS on Saturday afternoon.
On Saturday afternoon, the latest chapter in the South’s oldest rivalry will be written when No. 18 Auburn hosts No. 2 Georgia on the Plains. The Georgia Bulldogs’ defense is the best in the country by nearly all relevant metrics and hasn’t given up a point since Week 3 after a spectacular effort in a shutout victory against Arkansas last week in Athens, Georgia.
While the Tigers have a non-conference loss under their belt, they are coming off a thrilling win over LSU last week in Baton Rouge. Now that the Tigers have won a big road game, they can go into the SEC schedule’s second half with a lot of confidence.
What’s going to happen at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday afternoon? This matchup will be dissected, and we’ll also offer some predictions both straight up and against the spread. Georgia vs. Auburn live coverage is available on CBSSports.com.
Need to know: Georgia vs. Auburn
Specifically, Georgia’s quarterback problem: JT Daniels, the team’s starter, is out with a scapula injury, but backup Stetson Bennett has stepped up admirably in his place. As a result, Bennett will have his work cut out for him on Saturday when the Tigers visit the Plains for a rematch of the Iron Bowl.
He completed 46% of his throws and threw three interceptions against Alabama last time out on the road. Because of their long-standing rivalry, this Auburn team will be in a similar situation as Alabama’s, even though they aren’t comparable. Is Bennett able to cope with the stress? Kirby Smart, the coach, would rather not learn the truth and instead send Daniels to the field.But it’s possible he won’t have the option.
In Baton Rouge last week, Auburn quarterback Bo Nix pulled off a feat so impressive that it earned him a residency at a posh Las Vegas hotel. Even when it appeared that plays were disintegrating around him, he managed great pressure and consistently found ways to move the chains.
In order for the Tigers to have a chance against the Bulldogs, he’ll have to repeat his performance. To be sure, Tank Bigsby and Jarquez Hunter will have more work to do in the backfield, but Nix must be savvy when Georgia’s defense disturbs his passes.
The Tigers beat LSU in Baton Rouge last weekend for the first time since 1999, making Bryan Harsin the first coach to do so since Auburn was coached by a man who is now a United States Senator.
Old stories: (Tommy Tuberville). Against a Georgia team that has defeated the Tigers 13 times in the previous 16 meetings, Harsin has a good chance of reversing the trend he halted last week. The fact that he was hired as an outsider last offseason suggests that he may not be concerned by the team’s recent struggles versus some of its major opponents.

Picks and predictions for Georgia vs. Auburn game.
Keeping Nix off the field is the best way for Georgia to stop Nix from using his powers, and that’s exactly what will happen. Regardless of who starts at quarterback, Todd Monken will do everything in his power to make the game go as quickly as possible, confident that any of his quarterbacks can handle the football responsibly. So, Nix and his dynamic backfield will be able to keep the score close enough for the game to go to overtime. Prospects are good for Auburn.
