Kirby Smart’s inaugural season in Athens hasn’t gotten off to the smoothest of starts.

The Bulldogs currently sit at 5-4 — 3-4 in conference play. There’s still a chance — albeit a small one — that Georgia can win the SEC East.

In order to accomplish this goal, Georgia must go unscathed the remainder of the way. This starts with a home date versus a red-hot Auburn squad on Saturday.

This contest marks the final conference home game in 2016. Should Georgia lose this game, it will mark the first time since 1962 in which the ‘Dawgs have gone winless at home versus SEC competition.

Expect Georgia to come out amped for this contest — especially considering the fact it now has momentum coming off the big road win at Kentucky.
