ATHENS - No. 1 UGA Football has been installed as a significant favorite to win at Auburn on Saturday. 

According to FanDuel, Georgia is listed as an 18.5-point favorite to beat the Tigers Saturday. It is the first time this season the Dawgs have been listed as being lower than a 20-point favorite in 2023. This will be UGA’s first road game of the years. Georgia beat UAB 49-21 in Athens on Saturday.

UGA will travel to Auburn for a 3:30 kickoff on CBS. It is the second time this season the Bulldogs will play on that network. Georgia will also play the Gators on CBS, and it is very possible UGA will play Kentucky on CBS next week in Athens. The Bulldogs have won all of their contests by ten points or more this season.
