Never before had the Bavarians, who are into their third campaign in the German top flight, won more than two games on the spin, but a 2-1 win over Freiburg completed a hat-trick which took them up to sixth in the table.
According to midfielder Daniel Baier, it is no coincidence either that the perennial strugglers are flying so high.
"We all know that we've been underestimated and made fun of for a while, but that never got to us," he told Kicker magazine.
"We've achieved a lot with modest means. We've done a lot for this success and it is not pure luck."
Nevertheless, Baier is not going to get carried away with Augsburg's form, adding: "We've got nine points to help us avoid relegation."
Hosts Hannover also have nine points, all gained in their three home games this season.
Indeed, the Niedersachsenstadion has been a fortress for the Reds for the past three seasons.
"We are a force to be reckoned with at home and we've made it our intention to win every single one of our home matches," said the club's director of sport Dirk Dufner recently.
Another pillar of Hannover's success this season is Mame Diouf, who they are hoping to convince to sign a new contract in the coming days.
"Mame has said frequently that he is happy in Hannover and we want to show him how important he is to us," added Dufner to the Bild newspaper.
"Our aim is like it always was: we want Mame to stay."
However, the Senegalese striker, who has scored 20 goals in 42 appearances for the Reds, is unavailable this weekend due to the foot injury which also forced him to miss the 2-0 defeat at Bayern Munich last weekend.
Didier Ya Konan will continue to deputise having done a good job in Munich.
