It is quite obvious that Auburn faces two formidable opponents in the next three weeks. It is also obvious that each is very similar in both offense and defense. Even the results of these two teams have been very similar.
When Auburn and Georgia meet this week it will be the 11th game for each in 11 weeks. The 2010 Georgia team has improved every week they have played this year. Their record is skewed by having played three ranked teams in the first four weeks of the season. Their fourth loss was the week after playing those three ranked teams in consecutive weeks.
This is not a 5-5 quality Georgia team that will travel to the plains this week. They could well be the most formidable opponent left on the schedule. Their worst loss this year was by 12 points.
While Auburn is 10-0, they must continue to improve to assure success down the stretch. Fans can take for granted that Georgia is improving every week.
