Georgia’s Toughest Games Of 2018


With an all-star football program like that of the University of Georgia, there is a lot of fan speculation as to how the Dawgs will shape up against their opponents. It’s time to take a closer look at who Georgia’s toughest opponents will be this upcoming season.

1. Auburn:

The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry is the annual game played against Georgia and Auburn since 1919, with a total of 122 games played. Last season the two teams faced each other twice, once in a regular season game resulting in Georgia’s first season loss and the other in the SEC Championship where Georgia got revenge by claiming the SEC title. ESPN’s Heather Dinich already claims that this is one of the games that could define the 2018 College Football Playoff Race. There is no doubt that the atmosphere in Sanford Stadium will be electric on November 10th when the Dawgs and Tigers face off yet again.

2. LSU:

On October 13th the Tigers will host the Dawgs in Baton Rouge, Lousiana. LSU has proven to be a tough opponent in past seasons. The last time the Dawgs faced the Tigers it was a very close game ending with the Georgis winning by a mere 3 points. Nevertheless, the biggest challenge UGA faces is playing the Tigers in Death Valley. LSU fans are known for being notoriously rowdy and over-the-top with enthusiasm for their team. Bear Bryant once said, “Being inside Tiger Stadium is like being on the inside of a drum.”

3. South Carolina:

The Dawgs and the Gamecocks have a tense history on the field. Although Georgia won the last game against South Carolina by 14 points, the Gamecocks are nothing to underestimate. South Carolina’s football program has been consistently improving year after year since head coach Will Muschamp made changes to the program. South Carolina QB Jake Bentley has learned a lot and grown into the position having had 2,555 passing yards last season. It’s needless to say that South Carolina is a team Georgia needs to keep on their radar.

With a much anticipated 2018 football season to come, Georgia’s fit for the challenge because the Dawgs always come out on top.
