Georgia vs. Auburn: Will Tigers Spoil Bulldogs' SEC Championship Hopes?

Barrett Sallee@BarrettSalleeSEC Football Lead WriterNovember 5, 2012

Saturday night on the Plains, Auburn and Georgia will meet in one of the most storied rivalry games in college football: the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry."

For Georgia, this game takes bigger meaning than just the rivalry. A Bulldog wins will clinch the SEC East division title and a date vs. the SEC West champion in the Georgia Dome. 

Auburn, on the other hand, is fighting for pride. The 2-7 Tigers have no shot at a bowl game, but would love nothing more than to ruin their rivals' SEC championship dreams.

Will the Tigers spring the upset on the Bulldogs on the Plains, or will Georgia cruise past the Tigers en route to the SEC East title?

B/R contributor Marc Kohn and SEC lead writer Barrett Sallee break down the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry" in this edition of "The Program."
