Jonathan Wallace starts at quarterback for Auburn today. He may not be sure of how well he stands up to Georgia’s defense, but he’s certain about one thing:
“From what I think about Georgia, they are going to come for me and I’m going to have to make some plays,” Wallace says in this video. “That’s just what it’s going to come down to. Of course, we’re going to be able to run the ball some, but it’s really going to come down to whether or not I can make the plays that need to be made.” [Emphasis added.]
They’ve got a good back in Tre Mason – although one of the complaints lobbed against Loeffler is that he hasn’t made enough use of Mason – but this team is only averaging 2.61 yards per game in rushing against conference opponents. I guess Wallace is hoping the Georgia defense confuses Auburn with Lexington.
