Pandemic burn: Georgia students target Auburn even after COVID positive
Georgia students rarely miss a chance to troll one of their border rivals, whether it be Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida or Auburn.
In this case, the Dawgs took aim at their foes on The Plains as they revealed a positive COVID-19 test while simultaneously trolling the Tigers.
“COVID positive … but at least we don’t go to Auburn.”
Much has been made about the movement of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, as the game was originally scheduled for Oct. 10, but is now set for Oct. 3, the second week of the season. This year, the game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by ESPN.
The 2020 season will be the earliest kickoff between Georgia and Auburn since 1892. It is typically held at least in late October or later with only five meetings, before 1937, taking place in October.
The Bulldogs have owned the recent series with wins in 12 of the last 15. That includes a three-game win streak against, and the last time Auburn won in Athens was in 2005. Georgia won the last meeting in Athens by a score of 27-10 in 2018. Georgia has won 3 straight in the series and 6 of the last 7 games. Overall, Georgia holds a 60-56-8 edge in the series.
