On the heels of stating his opinion that SEC teams are at a disadvantage considering the rigors of their conference schedule, Gus Malzahn gave his thoughts on Auburn playing Georgia and Alabama in a three-week span to close out their schedule on an annual basis.

  • Fortunately for Malzahn, Auburn gets both their SEC rivals at home this season. They had better make the most of the break in their schedule, as 2016 swings back in favor of Auburn's most heated rivals.

    In both rivalries, the home team has won the previous two games in the series.
