Auburn football has a huge opportunity ahead of it, and it starts with a matchup against the undefeated rival Georgia Bulldogs in Jordan-Hare Stadium in Week 11.
The Tigers (7-2, 5-1 SEC) need to win out in order to make it to the SEC Championship Game. Georgia has already punched its ticket to Atlanta by winning the SEC East. Auburn will look to avoid a fourth straight loss to its big regional rival with what should be a dramatic, nationally televised showdown on the Plains.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn desperately needs a big win against a rival opponent after several years of fading in November. Georgia’s Kirby Smart could still stay unbeaten in his second season at his alma mater with another impressive road victory. Here’s what you need to know about the showdown of Jarrett Stidham vs. Jake Fromm, Kerryon Johnson vs. Nick Chubb and Jeff Holland vs. Lorenzo Carter.
