Auburn football: Georgia natives on Tigers' roster taking Saturday's game 'personal'

AUBURN, Ala. — C.J. Uzomah has avoided responding to texts this week. His high school friends have been texting him constantly, ribbing Auburn's tight end about this week’s matchup against Georgia. Growing up just 50 miles away from Athens, Uzomah was just a stone’s throw from Georgia’s campus. And with many of the Suwanee native’s friends from home attending Saturday's game, Uzomah has heard about nothing but the Bulldogs all week.
