Throwback Thursday: The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry

Georgia and Auburn have been playing since 1892.
Which is why the game this Saturday is known as "The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry."
It's always a memorable game, and usually has a big impact on the SEC.

This year is going to be a little different, with Georgia not really in the SEC East race.
But it is a big game for Auburn, as they look to win out, including beating Alabama at the end of the season.

I have to say that I'm a realist in this situation, and I'll admit that Auburn should be slightly favored in the game on Saturday. But even with the Tigers favored, I'm still pumped for game time.

Here's a look back on previous Georgia/Auburn games over the last few years in Athens.

Believe it or not, Cody has not always been a Georgia fan.
When we first started dating, he liked Auburn.
You could say he saw the light and came to the good side. ;)
Just kidding...

I was lucky enough to grow up going to games every weekend.
I've always been exposed to this atmosphere, and was taught very early you like Georgia, and nobody else.

Cody was exposed to many different teams, never having one set team to cheer on every weekend. 

We're lucky enough to have the ability to go to Georgia games since my dad has season tickets.
And since Cody's been sweet enough to go with me to a few games, he's learned to really like the Athens atmosphere and the university.

Cody and I started dating in 2009, so this was the first game we ever went to together.

Hoping for a surprise upset this weekend in Auburn :)
Go Dawgs!


  1. I hope GA beats Auburn this weekend!!!! It is always an unknown game against Auburn, sometimes they are there to win and sometimes they don't have their crap together! I hope that GA wins so that Auburn feels defeated when they play Bama in a few weeks!

  2. This Bama fan hopes GA beats Auburn this weekend too!! Go DAWGS!

  3. I am hoping that Georgia wins for you this weekend, but also that Auburn beats Bama in a few weeks :) I might get hurt for saying that hehe

  4. I am so excited for the game this weekend!
