So, Bill Connelly’s latest advanced stat team profiles are out. Talk about your turnaround:
- Auburn’s percentile performance against Georgia at home: 87%
- Auburn’s percentile performance against Georgia in the SECCG: 11%
- Georgia’s percentile performance against Auburn at Auburn: 14%
- Georgia’s percentile performance against Auburn in the SECCG: 92%
It’s eerie how much of a mirror image the two games, played a mere three weeks apart, were. Other than the dam breaking a little earlier on the Plains due to the Hardman dropped punt, everything else went down in almost the same way, except for the uniforms.
This would make for a great question for somebody like Bill: how often do same-season rematches between ranked opponents play out like that?
