Behind Enemy Lines: Auburn-Georgia preview with UGA Wire's Joe Vitale




 

The 127th edition of the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry will take place this Saturday at Sanford Stadium on the campus of the University of Georgia.

These two teams have played great games against each other in their history, but Georgia has dominated the series in recent years, winning eight of the last 10 meetings.

The defending National Champions enter the game as the No. 2 team in the nation after jumping out to a 5-0 record. Their last two games have been challenging for the Bulldogs, as they uncharacteristically beat Kent State by 17 points, and recently defeated Missouri by just four points.

What has been the cause of Georgia's recent struggles? What makes the offense's passing game so strong? To answer those questions, we invited UGA Wire managing editor Joe Vitale to join this week's "Behind Enemy Lines" in an effort to get a more in-depth look ahead of this Saturday's game.

Here is this week's "Behind Enemy Lines" ahead of Auburn's game at Georgia.
