Both Auburn and Georgia have run defenses that look a little shakier than they did earlier in the season.
Auburn against the run: rush defense went from allowing 100.2 yards per game through the first five games to yielding 166 in the last four.
And as for Georgia, Cory highlights a couple of plays from Kentucky that illustrated Pruitt still hasn’t gotten his kids to correct the numerous lapses that killed them against Florida.
Georgia cannot have these physical and mental lapses against Auburn. Auburn is going to run it right down our throats and they’re going to attack the edge – and, in my opinion, their going to attack the edge a lot. If Georgia does not man up on the interior, Auburn is going to gash us between the tackles. If Georgia does not keep outside contain, Malzahn’s backs are going to be riding that fly sweep all day. If Georgia does not play disciplined defense, Nick Marshall is going to make them pay.
These are the best running attacks each defense has faced this season, and it’s not even close. If you think the second quarter in Lexington resembled a track meet, unless there’s some shoring up being done in practice this week, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
