NCAA Football: Georgia at Auburn John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Erk was pretty smart for an Auburn alum.

The Georgia offense hasn’t given the ball away and they’ve made enough plays to manufacture points. Against a defense as good as Auburn’s, that’s the goal.

The Plainsmen held the advantage in offensive yardage until that last Bulldog drive (when Georgia took a 175 to 147 yard advantage). Perhaps most promising was that the Bulldogs are averaging 5.1 yards per rush and have done so by going inside and outside against the Tiger defense. That’s delightfully unexpected.

The Athenian offense will get the ball to start the second half with a chance to go up by three touchdowns, which in a game like this feels like five. Just one more time, defense. One more time.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
