Good morning, Dawg fans! The time has come for The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry and for your Georgia Bulldogs to tee it up between the hedges against the Auburn Tigers. While it feels a bit odd for Georgia and Auburn to face off this early in the season, the weather has certainly agreed to cooperate with a kickoff temperature somewhere in the mid-60s. Beyond tonight’s game, there are a bevy of quality viewing choices throughout the day that make the still-young season feel like it’s really settled into a nice groove. And College Gameday has chosen to grace Athens with its presence so... that’s fun...
It really is a beautiful day though. Perfect for grilling, watching football, and perhaps downing entirely too much bourbon while trying not to gnaw your nails down to nubs thinking about the QB situation. It’s a hard job, but somebody’s got to do it. Let’s get to work!
As you enjoy the above, play a little game called “Find the UGA flag in England!”
And now for some Gameday Morning Dawg Bites:
- As usual, we’ll start of with another in the long line of uniformly excellent game trailers brought to us by @GeorgiaFootball on Twitter (for those of you who missed it):

- Next up, Kirby comments on Nolan Smith and we get a breakdown of the LB corps rotation.
- Dawgs247 brings us a look at how Kearis Jackson is making the most of his opportunities on special teams.
- Georgia has made the top 4 of a potential future member of its platoon of running backs. 4-Star Jordan James would be the first running back to join Georgia’s 2022 class.
- Looking ahead, it seems Glynn County is already preparing for the influx of fans that comes to St. Simons with the Georgia-Florida game. I absolutely 100% support what they are trying to do here. I also think it’s totally adorable that they think it’s going to work.
That about does it for our Dawg Bites this morning, but this is also your Gameday Morning Open Comment Thread. Let us know how you’re feeling about tonight’s game, how you’re spending the morning hours in preparation, and feel free to comment on whatever nonsense the ESPN crew puts out over the airwaves. But most of all, enjoy sharing this time with your fellow Dawg Sports commenters and watching the early games. Macondawg will be along later with your additional comment threads leading up to The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.
