Auburn's passing attack is back at full-strength.
An open date helped top wide receivers Emory Blake and Trovon Reed recover from injuries that had sidelined them for a combined seven games. It's good timing considering the 24th-ranked Tigers visit No. 14 Georgia on Saturday.
Quarterback Clint Moseley says the presence of Blake and Reed ''really opens our game plan up and lets us do a few more things.''
Blake returned from an ankle injury against Mississippi after missing three games and is still easily Auburn's leading receiver. He had five catches for 71 yards and a touchdown against the Rebels but said he was far from 100 percent.
Reed has missed four games with a shoulder injury.
BEST OF MAXIM
Tempers flared the last time Georgia and Auburn met in a normally neighborly rivalry.

Billed as the oldest rivalry in the Deep South, it got ugly last season. There were 10 personal foul penalties, two suspensions of Auburn players for throwing...
Michael Dyer didn't enter his sophomore season as a starter, but Auburn's coaches knew how important he'd be toward the team's success in 2011.
They probably didn't figure that he'd be this important, though.
After nine games, it's safe to say Dyer has truly carried an Auburn offense that has struggled at times to move the ball through the air.
