AUBURN, Ga. - Saturday will be the 121st time Georgia and Auburn will face off in the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.” Some Georgia fans got to Auburn, Alabama Wednesday to stake their claim on this coveted corner.
“You have to fight for your spot down here. Like I said we want to be on this corner down here so when the Georgia buses turning they see the line of Georgia fans being supportive,” said Jason Collins.
To beat the Auburn fans who set up here every game day, this crew showed up Wednesday afternoon. Although the rivalry is intense, Collins said they all get along… until game time.
“We get cut up with everybody have a good time. Then come game time and then it gets a little serious and we could go back to playing and have fun,” said Collins.
And none of these guys actually go to the game. They sit and watch from huge full screens attached to their busses. They said you’ll be able to hear them hollering from the stadium.
“Everybody always wants to win this game. Auburn and always the best team but they are the luckiest,” said Barton Cartey, another Georgia fan parked on this corner.
Out of 120 games, there are eight ties, 55 Auburn wins, and 57 for Georgia.
“This year it will be 58, we got ‘em this year,” said Cartey.
Number 1 Georgia is undefeated 9-0 while Number 10 Auburn sits 7-2. The game starts at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Auburn.
