Mark Richt and his fifth-ranked Georgia team (8-1, 6-1 SEC) need a win against slumping Auburn (2-7, 0-6) to return to the SEC championship game, but Saturday’s matchup is even more personal than usual for Georgia’s coach.

Richt used his time Wednesday on the SEC’s weekly teleconference to discuss facing Auburn assistants Brian VanGorder and Willie Martinez, both of whom served on Richt’s original Georgia staff in 2001 and at some point held the defensive coordinator title at UGA.
