Auburn hopes to apply pressure on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray (AP Photo/Dave Martin)AP Photo/Dave Martin
We know the history. Georgia has won six of the past seven in the Deep South's oldest rivalry.
We know Georgia is getting healthy again. The Bulldogs are getting back Chris Conley, the team's leading receiver who has been out for the past two games, and tight end Arthur Lynch, a 6-foot-5, 254-pound target whose bruised ribs aren't so bruised this week.
We know Aaron Murray is one of the best quarterbacks in SEC history and running back Todd Gurley, when he's on the field, is among the nation's top runners.
Go ahead and chalk up a lot of points in Saturday's game at Jordan-Hare Stadium for 3 1/2-point underdog Georgia (6-3).
What we don't know is how Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall will handle the spotlight playing against the team and coach he played for when he signed as a freshman.
So far, it's all good for Marshall and No. 7 Auburn (9-1) but the spotlight is a lot different than the last time the Tigers played a ranked team. That turned out to be Auburn's finest hour this year, a 45-41 upset over then-No. 7 Texas A M.
This week's picks:
Georgia vs. Auburn
Alabama vs. Mississippi State
IN THE STATE
UAB vs. East Carolina: the number to keep in mind here is 40.
That's how many points the 26 1/2-point underdog Blazers allow. ECU averages
South Alabamavs. Navy: The nine-point underdog Jags have
played a bunch of close games. Against Navy's triple-option, they're going to
have to hold serve or get trampled.
