It won’t be 90,000-plus fans gathered in Sanford Stadium for the latest edition of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. But with No. 4 Georgia and No. 7 Auburn meeting on Saturday in front of upwards of 23,200 in attendance, the result won’t be any less important to both sides.

The Bulldogs have taken the last 3 from the Tigers, including a 28-7 win at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta in the 2017 SEC Championship Game. Last year, they held on for a 21-14 win at Jordan-Hare Stadium. On top of that, Sanford Stadium has not been kind to Auburn recently: it has lost its last 6 games there.

One historical note: this is the earliest the 2 teams have met in a season since 1927, when Georgia and Auburn played on October 22.

It’s a primetime Top 10 matchup under the lights for the Bulldogs and Tigers on ESPN, with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 pm ET. On Thursday, Georgia released its Week Two trailer on its social media account, centered around the theme “Leave No Doubt”.
