ATLANTA, GA – Auburns’ has the better defense in Saturday’s game. It’s not a question.
Not the same as, “It’s not close.” It is, at least I think it is.
Still waiting to figure out what Georgia’s team is this season, but I say with confidence that UGA’s defense has performed about as well as a team could against the opponents on this year’s schedule. Questions arise when you start considering the opponents.
Auburn? Neutral-site vs. Oregon, on the road at Florida, LSU and Texas A&M, plus I’ll give them credit for the home win v Ole Miss. Rebels have been scoring everyone since Plumlee took over. Auburn beat them 24-10.
One more? Maybe sprinkles on the sundae if not an actual cherry? Tulane is averaging 36 points per game, has the 4th-best offense in a conference with SMU, UCF and Memphis, who are 1, 2 and 3. Auburn held them to 6 points. 223 yards of offense.
That shows much more than, “Hey, look how far we stuck our cleat up Vandy’s backside.” Or Murray State. Or etc.
