Georgia vs. Auburn: Tigers are 'trying to ruin our season,' says Aaron Murray

Scott Cunningham

The Georgia quarterback wants to make sure not to overlook the Auburn Tigers.

With a win over the Auburn Tigers, the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs would move on to the SEC Championship where they would almost certainly face the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide. Entering the game as favorites to win the game by 15 1/2 points, the Bulldogs are certainly expected to get through Auburn, but Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray wants to make sure not to overlook the Tigers:

"Those guys are playing for respect and they're trying to ruin our season, so I know they'll be excited," Murray said Tuesday. "We're definitely going to have to be ready to go and we know we have a huge challenge ahead of us."

With a 2-7 overall record, Auburn has yet to earn a conference victory, but Murray doesn't think that is an indicator that the Tigers are devoid of talent. "In the SEC, teams are rarely consistently successful every single season -- there are too many good teams. You are going to have up and down seasons. I don't believe Auburn's record reflects the talent they have on that team."

The sole loss of the season for the Bulldogs came in early October as they lost, 35-7, to the South Carolina Gamecocks.
