Two games matching ranked Southeastern Conference teams. including the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry, highlights the fifth week of the college football season.
No. 13 Texas A&M visits No. 2 Alabama on Saturday, looking for its biggest SEC victory since Johnny Manziel beat the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa in 2012.
No. 7 Auburn goes to No. 4 Georgia on Saturday night as the second month of the season starts, but only the second week of SEC play.
The rest of the schedule features a rematch of last season's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game between Virginia and No. 1 Clemson and a return to action by No. 25 Memphis, which has been sidelined by a COVID-19 outbreak since it opened with a Labor Day weekend victory.
No. 7 Auburn at No. 5 Georgia
The rivalry dates to 1892 and it typically gets played in November. Even before the SEC revised its schedule to an all-conference slate to deal with the possibility of pandemic disruptions, the Bulldogs and Tigers were set to play the earliest date they ever have — Oct. 10.
The new schedule pushed Auburn-Georgia up another week. The major storyline will be who plays quarterback for the Bulldogs. Georgia's offense needed a while to get rolling last week at Arkansas, but clicked in the second half behind former walk-on Stetson Bennett.
