No. 2 – The Auburn Tigers

The 2013 play that broke the hearts of the Bulldog Nation, and broke the back of Georgia’s hopes for anything beyond a Capital One Bowl Week game. The loss to Auburn, in essence, spoiled the Georgia season.

The Bulldogs would love to return the favor this year.

If you don’t think that game…that play…sticks in the memory of every player returning from last season, then you don’t know a thing about the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.

None of them will come out and say it, but you can bet your last hot wing, Georgia wants to come into the game against Auburn undefeated. They want to make the game against Auburn to be their statement game, the one that says “Ok, we’re here…come at us, bro”.  The game that makes Alabama or LSU (whoever is leading the West at that point) to stand up and take notice.

Yes, there are two more games after Auburn. We’ll just call Charleston Southern and the Bumblin’ Wreck warm-ups for the postseason, namely the SEC Championship game and the College Football Playoff.
