For the first time this season, Auburn football will play a game on CBS, and of course, they had to throw in a little special surprise for us. Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray will be on the broadcasting team for the rivalry game.
That’s right, a former Georgia player that is an outspoken Georgia fan will be an analyst for this weekend’s game.
It will be a big test for first-year head coach Bryan Harsin’s Tigers. The Dawgs are currently the #2 team in the nation and have the top-ranked defense in all of CFB. However, they have yet to face a top 20 offense, meaning their first true test could come from none other than Bo Nix.
With so much on the line for Auburn football this weekend, fans were less than happy that someone on the other side of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry will be commentating:

The last time Aaron Murray was in Jordan-Hare Stadium it wasn’t such a happy ending for him. That’s right, Murray was Georgia’s QB during the famous Prayer in Jordan-Hare. Some fans think that having Murray present will actually bring bad luck to the Dawgs:
The last time Aaron Murray was in Jordan Hare we won, so this might be a good thing
