Looking ahead to Saturday’s game between the Auburn football team and the Georgia Bulldogs, the Tigers and Bulldogs are an evenly matched pair each with an explosive offense. Georgia head coach Mark Richt and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo have taken plenty of heat in years past for the Bulldogs falling short of expectations, but the two have a great track record for producing quality offenses and this year’s squad is shaping up to be the best in school history.

The Bulldogs lead the SEC and rank seventh nationally with 43 points per game in 2014. Georgia has relied heavily on one of the most talented backfields in the country to rush for 256.3 yards per game, which is second only to Auburn’s 286.4 in the SEC and is the 14th best ground attack in the country.

However, the Dawgs are far from one-dimensional. Georgia averages 196.9 yards per game through the air, which brings the total offensive production to 453.2 yards per game. And while the sub-200-yard passing average ranks 93rd nationally, the Bulldogs have a quality veteran quarterback in Hutson Mason and a solid group of receivers capable of putting up yards and points in the passing game.

Both Auburn and Georgia enter the game with 7-2 overall records, and both teams are alive in the race for an SEC title and even in the College Football Playoff picture. Of course, with the Tigers ranked ninth by the playoff committee and Georgia ranked 15th, they’ll both need a lot of help, and neither can afford a third loss.

With the Auburn defense reeling in recent weeks, Georgia’s offense will be a major challenge.
