My point... The top rushing attack UGA has faced has been mizzou, and UGA lost at home in that game. Granted UGA has had many injuries to deal with, but it's hard to imagine their defense is good enough to stop Auburns offense. All auburn has to do is burn them with a pass here and there and that defense will not be able to stop the AU run.
On the other hand, UGA has a near healthy gurley and Aaron Murray. They will be hard for AU to stop. Yet, Auburns style is to drag a team out of their game plan. This helps AU's defense by allowing a fresh and talented d line to pin it's ears back and get the QB.... And cause the oppositions offense to make mistakes.
I think that's what will happen tomorrow. UGA will get their yards and a few scores in the first half and AU will too, but after you get into the 3rd quarter, AU will begin to pull away.
Of course, penalties and turnovers can change anything.
IMHO There are too many what-ifs in this match-up If I had to go I go with AUB BOL
