It’s still early October, but it’s Georgia-Auburn week nonetheless. So what’s going to happen on The Plains this Saturday afternoon?

Well, Graham and Josh are still arguing about that. DawgOutWest sees an Auburn defense that dropped into zone a lot and an LSU offense that never took advantage of the invitation to run. Last time he thought the Dawgs would struggle to run up the middle they dominated Arkansas at the line of scrimmage.

Dawg_Stats sees a UGA run game that isn’t explosive enough, and an Auburn front that he thinks Georgia will struggle to run against despite the Tigers being gashed on the ground against Georgia St. In his defense, Auburn was missing some LB’s in the first half of that game.

So who is right? We shall see on Saturday. The good news is that both Graham and Josh think the Dawgs will be victorious. One just thinks it will be a much harder earned win than the other.

Jump inside for plenty of film, scheme analysis, advanced stats, debate, and Week 6 Picks against the spread. DawgOutWest is 38-21-1 against the Vegas lines so far this year, and yes, he’s just as surprised about it as you are.

Until later… GO DAWGS!
