Friday Morning 'Dawg Bites.

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

You've almost made it through the work week and game day beckons. Let's get you ready for the latter so you can get started on the former.

Beat writer Q&A: Breaking down Auburn | Bulldogs Beat with Seth Emerson |
Auburn beat writer Ryan Black offers some very in-depth answers on the Tigers and the matchup with Georgia.

Matchup to watch: Hutson Mason versus Auburn's secondary | Online Athens
Mason is playing with a little more confidence than he showed at the beginning of the season, the Tigers' secondary has given up big plays, and their pass rush hasn't been anything special after suffering losses by graduation and injury from an exceptional 2013 unit. Georgia will get some shots against the Plainsmen. The 'Dawgs must make the most of them to win this one.

Auburn preparing to face 'aggressive' Georgia defense led by familiar face |
No one knows which Bulldog defense will show up on Saturday. Will it be the one that shut down Missouri and Arkansas? The one that got run the heck over by Florida? I think the answer is probably closer to Florida, because this Auburn offense is pretty darned good, and a lot more explosive than the Arky and Mizzou units. I do derive some comfort from the fact that Jeremy Pruitt has experience scheming against Malzahn's offense. I just wish he were doing so with some of the guys from his 2013 FSU defense.

Defense, intangibles give Georgia the edge over Auburn | Online Athens
I still can't wrap my head around the Bulldog defense being any sort of advantage. That being said, the intangible aspects of this game do seem to line up well for the 'Dawgs.

Georgia Bulldogs' Richt expecting 'monster' cast of visitors
Both in terms of quality and quantity of the prospects expected in Athens, this coming weekend is one of the biggest in Georgia football history. Mark Richt knows it, too.

Georgia Sports Blog: Friday Morning Meltdown: Auburn
I expect a 51-48 shootout and am terrified of how many yards rushing Auburn could pile up in this game. And terrified about how we'll handle Nick Marshall as a running threat. And how we'll handle the run/pass option component of the Auburn offense. Mostly I'm just terrified. It's nice to know I'm not alone. Until later...

Go 'Dawgs!!!
