No. 5 Georgia guns for SEC East title at Auburn

(Continued)

Chizik said this defense is "night and day" from the one the freshman faced against New Mexico State, when the Tigers scored 35 second-half points. Wallace acknowledges that, and the challenge of facing a defense led by All-America linebacker Jarvis Jones, who has 8.5 sacks and five forced fumbles in seven games.

Wallace also has no doubt Georgia will try to rattle him early with pressure.

"Of course. Why not?" he said. "From what I think about Georgia they are going to come for me and I'm going to have to make some plays Saturday. That's just what it's going to come down to. Of course we're going to be able to run the ball some, but it's really going to come down to whether or not I can make the plays that need to be made.

"I'm going to step up to the plate. That's what this game is about, is competing. It's just one of those things where I have to grow up quick. I'm ready for the challenge. It's going to be a lot of fun Saturday."
