albeit, week 5 vs Leach and the leghumpers to use the Jeff term:
Auburn’s season is effectively over before it has really begun. What most assumed would be a close game between Georgia and Auburn was anything but. Kirby Smart’s team ran around the Tigers and handed Gus Malzahn his second loss in as many games to open the season – this time by 23 points. The win helped answer this question for the Bulldogs, too: How would they fare without Jamie Newman?
The answer appears to be, just fine.
In Starkville, Mike Leach had his first winnable game as Mississippi State’s head coach (following a loss at LSU in Week 4), but it turned ugly. Arkansas pulled away from the Bulldogs in the second half and won by 16.
