Spikes: Georgia vs Auburn Still All About Stopping The Run


Former Auburn Linebacker, longtime NFL player and current host of the “Behind the Mask” Podcast, Take Spikes, joined the College Football Gametime trio of Chris Goforth, Jon Chuckery and Randy McMichael to preview “The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry” between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers.

“When you look at Georgia you have to look at what do they do well before you even look at the quarterback situation….they (Georgia) are going to run the football well, period….When you look at Auburn, first case scenario is you have to stop the run,” Spike said when asked about how the Auburn defense can prepare for playing potentially three different quarterbacks.

“When we stop the run game, now defensively we (Auburn) can come up with creative looks because of the inexperience of the quarterback position (for Georgia),” Spikes added.
