Georgia-Auburn will be a night game

ATHENS - The Georgia football team's run of night games will continue.

Georgia's visit to Auburn on Nov. 10 will kick off at 7 p.m. ET, the SEC announced on Monday. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

That will make six games, out of 10, that have kicked off this season at 7 p.m. or later. Three other games, including Saturday's game against Ole Miss, have kicked off at 3:30 p.m.

Georgia's home game against Georgia Southern on Nov. 17 has already been announced as a 1:30 p.m. kickoff. The only other early-afternoon game this year was the season opener against Buffalo, which kicked off at 12:21 p.m.

The game time for the regular-season finale against Georgia Tech, on Nov. 24, is not due to be announced for another couple weeks.

Auburn (1-7) is struggling immensely, and head coach Gene Chizik's job status has become a hot topic. Georgia will be looking for its sixth win against Auburn since 2006, the only loss coming in 2010.

More importantly for the Bulldogs, if they beat Ole Miss, the game at Auburn will be a chance to clinch a second straight SEC East title.
