What they’re saying nationally after Auburn’s late rally, QB change vs. Georgia State

What was set to be a final tune-up before the start of SEC play turned into a dramatic and quite eventful homecoming for Auburn on Saturday. After trailing by 12 at halftime, Auburn rallied to defeat Georgia State, 34-24, thanks to some late-game heroics by LSU transfer quarterback T.J. Finley, who replaced third-year starter Bo Nix late in the third quarter. Finley’s late touchdown pass to Shedrick Jackson, paired with Smoke Monday’s pick-six -- both of which came in the game’s final minute -- helped the Tigers avoid disaster against the Panthers.

Georgia football: Should the Bulldogs be No. 1 in the country?

I’m awfully tempted to take the bait. Yes, the Georgia offense is absolutely clicking — for now, at least. Yes, its defense is performing at an elite level — again, for now, at least. The Dawgs are coming off a 62-0 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday, after all, the most...

College football Week 4 takeaways: Everybody stinks except Alabama and Georgia

There hasn’t been this much parity in college football since 2007 when no one wanted to be No. 1, but Alabama and Georgia remain in a class unto themselves. One of the many reasons college football is the greatest sport is because you can have a schedule that looks like it’s the perfect weekend to catch up on some errands and you get absolute chaos.

Georgia State Panthers head coach Shawn Elliott called out SEC officials for giving the Auburn Tigers some home cooking on Saturday night.
