Saturday’s Georgia vs Auburn NCAA Football Analysis: Aside from Cam Newton’s championship season Georgia has owned Auburn in recent years, a combined 83-7 in their last two meetings.  Many of the active players on the Auburn roster have never beaten Georgia and they should come into this game ready and motivated.  Auburn has been one of the biggest turnaround stories in all of college football this season.  At 9-3 and ranked seventh they are putting last years 3-9 and last place performance behind them largely because they have found an identity.  They play tough defense and pound the ball early and often.  Auburn’s 330 rushing yards per game ranks third in all of college football behind RB Tre Mason and QB Nick Marshall while scoring 33 touchdowns this season, only behind Oregon and Baylor.  With a season-ending matchup against unbeaten Alabama in two weeks, the Tigers need a win this weekend to have a shot at playing in the SEC Championship game.  Georgia is coming into this game after playing Appalachian State last week so they should have extra preparation time for this contest and it is no secret they’re going to need to stop the run to have any chance of winning.  Georgia QB Aaron Murray will also get his leading receiver Chris Conley and starting tight end Arthur Lynch back for this game after missing last Saturday’s contest.  Auburn uses run plays on first and second down to set up third and short situations and all of their opponents have known this every week, yet they have been unstoppable.  Georgia’s defense is questionable to begin with, especially at linebacker so they’re going to need to score points to keep up with Auburn in this game.  Defensively, Auburn allows only 20.4 points per game but against top competition they’ve been much more beatable.  If Aaron Murray can connect on a few deep passes and score quickly to keep his team in the game they will have a chance against Auburn who might be looking ahead to Alabama and has definitely out played their ability level to this point this season.
Georgia at Auburn NCAA Football Picks: Georgia +3.5 and under 62.5
Georgia at Auburn Game Prediction: 28-27 Georgia
What to expect in this week 12 NCAA Football match up: Georgia’s defense is good enough to slow down a completely one dimensional Auburn running attack.  They also have one of the best quarter backs in the SEC in Aaron Murray who will have a few three and outs against a stout Auburn defense, but the big play ability will be there and keep his team in the game.  Auburn will fall behind in the second half and be forced to pass the ball, which will lead to a game deciding turn over late in the second half and Georgia will squash Auburn’s hopes of playing for the SEC Championship.
