Kirby Smart, making Georgia road games great again.
Defeating Auburn would help Georgia avoid its first winless season at home against Southeastern Conference opposition since 1962, when the Bulldogs tied Kentucky (7-7) and were thumped by Georgia Tech (37-6). They have not lost all of their home league games since 1957, when they played only two and fell to Vanderbilt (9-6) and Alabama (14-13).
This is already the deepest Georgia has gone into a season without defeating a Bowl Subdivision foe at home since 1962.
The Bulldogs are 5-4 overall, having won true league road games against Missouri, South Carolina and Kentucky but also losing badly at Ole Miss. They are 1-1 in neutral-site contests, opening with a victory over North Carolina in Atlanta and losing their annual matchup with Florida in Jacksonville.
You know, that’s not easy to do.
