Game time, TV set for Georgia-Auburn

Georgia’s Nov. 13 football game at Auburn will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and be nationally televised on CBS, the network said today.

Georgia has won its past four games against Auburn, but the Tigers, led by Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback Cam Newton, are 9-0 and ranked No. 2 in this week’s BCS standings. Georgia is 4-5.

Auburn’s ranking and record are obviously attractive to CBS. The network, which has the top choice of SEC games each week, chose Auburn-Georgia over the Nov. 13 South Carolina-Florida game, which figures to be for the East’s berth in the SEC championship game.  South Carolina-Florida will start at 7:15 p.m. on either ESPN or ESPN2.

Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson will call Georgia-Auburn for CBS, along with sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson.

The game will be Georgia’s second of the season in the 3:30 p.m. ET window on CBS. The first was last Saturday’s 34-31 overtime loss to Florida in Jacksonville.

Both Georgia and Auburn play FCS (formerly Division I-AA) opponents this week — Idaho State and Chattanooga, respectively.

The Georgia-Auburn series is the most-played — and perhaps most competitive — in SEC history. The teams have played 113 times, with Auburn leading the series 53-52-8.

@lance, I agree with you!! I totally love my dawgs but continuing a defeat at the hands of Florida has to stop. I was at the game, left at half time because I didn’t want to hear all the gator fan trash talking. I’m not mad at them, they should be proud but I am upset about our team. I grew up my whole childhood years in Athens loving the dawgs, Vince Dooley kept us in contention or atleast beating the rivals and keeping these long losing streaks away. I really don’t know what to say or what we need to do?? To all the DAWG fans, GO DAWGS!!

We’ll show up and we’ll give ‘em a game…by the way, the way to handle Mr. Newton is how they finally learned to handle Herschel…knock him off his pins – in other words hit him as low as you can get…either that or offer him a lap-top for twenty dollars.

Hmmmmm….if they load the box we can throw to their VERY weak and sh!tty secondary…..if they don’t load the box we run it down their throat..,,,ok, that’s our game plan for this weeks game….I can start planning for Alabama now….

single cover AJ (cause they don’t throw to him anyway), roll coverage to Durham…sit back and wait for a few INTs off the hands of those other “receivers”….don’t have to worry about their running game cause when I put the stop watch on those 2 backs they have on their depth chart, it took about 2.5 DAYS for them to hit the hole after the Off line opened up the hole….we should be ok in this one….let me start planning for Bama!

Firing the entire coaching staff might be too little, too late. It might be time to give serious consideration to discontinuing the football program.

You so-called Georgia fans may be in for a surprise. You forget that the Auburn/Georgia games are always some of the most competitive when one team is nationally ranked.
I am not going to say that GA will win, but it is not going to be a lop-sided score, . . . if they lose at all.
I have no idea what the coaching staff was discussing, when they stated that AJ Green was called in most of the first hald calls, but, the qb was not even looking in his way. If you have a chance to watch the replay, watch which way AJ Green went, and they watch the eyes of Murray. The eyes of Murray and the body of AJ Green went in different directions.
Bobo has got to go. He is the problem. I love the guy, but, the facts are the facts. Bobo has to go.

Listen Dawg fans, CMR aint going nowhere. Accept it. I am not so sure that we should be wanting him to either. I hate the results of the Florida series in the last 20 years as bad as anybody. I hate our record this season. I can tell you.. if we had started the season 4 weeks ago and were sitting here at 3-1 with wins over TN, VANDY, KY, and an overtime loss to FL MOST Dawg fans would be happy. No, we can’t throw away the early losses but, YES we are getting better. CMR will be the coach next season and, barring a repeat of this season, the 2012 season also. You all better hope that he has learned his lesson this season and made changes that will lead to wins in the future. If he had played a kid last Saturday that had threatened to murder his girlfriend, half of you would be up in arms about that (even if we had won.) and the other half would have been okay with it as long as we won. Scooter, speeding, and alcohol violations are not even to be compared to the Rainey situation. CMR would never have played him. CMR is our coach and will be our coach for some time. The best thing we as fans van do is support our kids and help to convince more quality players to come to our school to play. If CMR does not think he can fix it, he will not have to be fired. Based on the last 4 games, I think he has some idea how to fix it. If Florida barely beat us this year, why do you think they will be that much better next season. Looks like we are catching up to them. That’s my two cents worth.

Please beat Auburn…can’t stand them. They’re not a team…they’re just Cam Newton. If UGA can find away to put a complete game together and stop Cam….they can pull it off. If not, the final score will be AU 59 UGA 6.

It’ll be another embarrassment for the Dawgs and Grantham led Defense that will play the same soft zone against a really good running QB. Its so mind boggling why this guy (Grantham) is coaching. Richt doesn’t seem to care otherwise we,d see something different, something encouraging to give fans hope but nope, it’ll be the same 4 man front w/o help to stop AU’s running game.

GA could win this game if they play to stop the run. thats going to take more folks on the line of scrimage. I and many GA faithful would be overjoyed to finally see GA’s def play to win and not play so not to lose even if we lose the game.

trhth4u, well said. I agree that CMR should not be fired. There are only a few coaches out there that I would even consider swapping CMR for. Those coaches are as loyal to their schools as Coach Richt is to the kids of GA.
The main thing CMR needs to do this off season is to read the team the riot act, about getting into trouble with the law, or in any way that is close to be deemed a legal matter.
Murray is going to be a great quarterback. It was clear that he was nervous going into this game, but he did come out and play better in the 2nd half. If you heard CMR’s comments at the beginning of the 2nd half, he said about Murray, “we are going to be alright” and he was right, for the 2nd half. Overtime is another discussion.

I would have to bet that CBS changes this schedule. Unless there is not another regional game worth a flip on. I will make sure that I have lots of yard work during that game. I know that I could not stomach that beating we will get in Auburn. It’s been a nice past 4 years, but its about to come to an end

I Bleed Red and Black, but I got to admit and give it up to Auburn DC. He’s right about our backs having virtually no vision and hitting the holes late. That is the state of the GA Run Game right now. Those guys up front are giving some holes, the backs arent getting it done on the ground, plain and simple. We were spoiled with Knowshon, im over these current two, cant wait to see what Malcome can do!!

Mark Richt blew it big time against the worst Florida team in 20 years. I still cant believe this clown is still our coach. The last 5 years have been huge disappointments for UGA nation. Im not going to pay the exorbitant ticket prices anymore until we get our moneys worth. This is a big blow to the football program. We are now the butt of jokes on sport talk stations today. Im sick of these idiots that coaches our team for the insane amount of money that is paid to them.

Coaching, BoBo, turnovers, Murray did not lose the game.
The game wound up in a tie.
Florida’s lucky call on the coin toss enabled them to
kick the field goal after seeing Georgia screw up their
opportunity. You can call it luck…

Just like any every other loss this season, UGA found a way to lose. TE’s letting balls go right through their hands turning into an INT, Cummings trying to pick up a fumble inside the 10 instead of falling on it, Bacari Rambo dropping a potential pick 6 at the end of the 4th quarter. Just like key fumbles in prior games, UGA finds a way to lose any close game. Meanwhile, an inferior UF team’s coach found a way to win. Sorry, I like Richt, but his time is up.

When Floridas # 3 QB was able to run a 50 yards for a touchdown WITHOUT EVEN BEING TOUCHED it makes me nervous to see how Cam Newton will do against our boys…

Kind of makes me really nervous.

What was UGA with Hershel? A TEAM or the samething you are now calling Auburn?
The only other SEC games to put on TV are Bama v Miss St, USC v Florida, Vandy v Kentucky, Ole Miss v Tenn,or La-Monroe v LSU. SO tell me what other SEC game would think they would put on TV besides UGA v Auburn? You know USC v Florida will be at Night and on TV so will Bama v Miss St.
