“It’ll be interesting to see what they do with that win and how they kind of use it to help themselves for the next game,” Disser said.
Georgia fans say their team is still number one in their book.
It’s not the end of the season we really clenched the SEC East so we’ll see whoever received the championship game,” said Payumo
“After beating a big team like Georgia and doing it so soundly 40-10 you know it’s pretty impressive so I’ll be interested to see what happens in the next couple of weeks,” Disser said.
Even though it’s likely Auburn won’t make the number one spot, fans are still faithful.
“I think the best case scenrio is that they make it to the college playoffs,” Disser said.
When you ask a true Georgia fan why they aren’t wearing red and black.
“O I took that off real quick,” Payumo said.
