UGA senior wide receiver Tyler Simmons talks about the upcoming game against Auburn and just how loud and rancorous Jordan-Hare Stadium can get for visiting teams. Plus, Simmons says he expects fellow wideout Lawrence Cager to perform on Saturday and he has sat down with younger players, like George Pickens, on “staying level headed.”

On going to Jordan Harris Stadium this weekend…

“All I can think about is 2017. The energy there. The fans. The environment. Auburn feeds off their crowd. It is a tough place to play. You just have to hone into the details. Staying focused. We do a lot of crowd noise throughout the week to prepare ourselves for that. Jake is doing different things with the snap count. Just to control the crowd and everything. It is just honing into the little details and just making sure we are prepared for that.”

On how Auburn’s crowd noise compares to other stadiums...

“It is definitely top three. Definitely top three in the SEC. Sanford Stadium is definitely one of the loudest. But, Tennessee, places like Auburn, South Carolina, places like that are always hard to play in.”

On sharing a message with the younger guys on the team…

“I have definitely talked to Pickens about this week. Just because I know he was committed there for a minute. I know his emotions are going to be going wild. I know we are going to need him to make some big plays. Just telling him to stay level headed. Just hone in on the details and do what you know how to do. Don’t try to do anything extra. Don’t try to do anything outside of your job. Just do your job.”
