Despite the fact that Georgia and Auburn both recently suffered their second losses of the season, Saturday's game between the two sides still has major implications.
But a lot more is on the line in this year's edition of the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry."
The school that claims victory will also win the 2014 Waffle Wager, meaning that free waffles, hash browns and coffee will be served in the local Waffle House of Auburn, Ala. or Athens, Ga.
The winning team will also receive a $15,000 donation to its general scholarship fund.
Waffle House's CEO and president also noted that college football is beloved in "waffle nation," which may refer to the South or just people who like waffles in general. From Saturday Down South:
“College football is a big tradition in the waffle nation and we wish both teams good luck,” Waffle House CEO and President Walt Ehmer said in a release provided to Saturday Down South.
In last year's Waffle Wager, Alabama beat Texas A&M, gifting Tuscaloosans free Waffle House.
Georgia and Auburn play this Saturday at 7:15 p.m. ET.
