"Our biggest rivalries were Alabama and Georgia, and then probably Tennessee would have been next," Dye said. "We really just lost Tennessee, and we play them ... whenever they come back around (in a rotation). It's been a good format for the Southeastern Conference."
"Tennessee was a big game for Auburn, and Georgia of course is a natural rivalry," former Auburn coach Pat Dye said. "We would have had three big games, with Florida, Georgia and Tennessee every year _ and then Alabama."
