With Todd Gurley and Michael Bennett back in the lineup, Georgia's offense is once again one of the more prolific attacks in the country. Arthur Lynch and Chris Conley may also return from injuries this week, and if they do Aaron Murray will have a full arsenal of weapons.
Georgia must maintain offensive momentum by putting together long, meaningful scoring drives and limiting turnovers. There will be opportunities created by a balanced offensive approach, so offensive coordinator Mike Bobo does not need to do anything creative. An even keel will keep this offense moving and scoring.
Stop the Run
Defensively, the Dawgs must stop Auburn's stout running game. Every player in Auburn's backfield, including quarterback Nick Marshall, is capable of making plays on the ground, and the Tigers' production speaks for itself at 320 rushing yards per game.
Georgia is a better team when its offense is on the field, but a dominating Auburn ground game could handcuff that possibility. Georgia must find a way to minimize the effectiveness of the Tigers ground game.
