I mentioned a couple of days ago that Georgia had compiled a nice streak since the Notre Dame game of dominating its opponents by at least 25 points in each contest. I didn’t realize it was as big a deal historically as it turns out to be.
5 Consecutive conference contests have been won by at least 25 points by Georgia. Only one team in SEC history has a longer such streak. The Bulldogs have beaten Mississippi State by 28 points, Tennessee by 41, Vanderbilt by 31, Missouri by 25 and Florida by 35 in its five league games this season. In 2008, Florida had a six-game streak against SEC opponents in which the Gators beat Arkansas by 31 points, LSU by 30, Kentucky by 58, Georgia by 39, Vanderbilt by 28 and South Carolina by 50. Georgia plays South Carolina on Saturday.
Close call today, in my humble opinion. In any event, Auburn’s good enough to bring that to an end next weekend.
