The seventh-ranked Auburn Tigers hosted the No. 25 Georgia Bulldogs at Jordan-Hare Stadium today hoping to end the Bulldogs’ dominance over them. Georgia had won the last two meetings by a combined 83-7 and six of seven in the series. The Bulldogs are also finally getting healthy on offense. Running back Todd Gurley came back last week, and this game saw the return of their top receiver in Chris Conley and the always-reliable tight end Arthur Lynch.
But that wasn’t enough to stop the Tigers from jumping out to an early 27-7 lead on the strength of their ground game. After falling behind 34-17, Aaron Murray led Georgia to three consecutive scores to take a 38-37 lead. This was highlighted by a controversial touchdown run with 1:49 left in the game by Murray in which he scored on fourth-and-goal run, but appeared to be short of the goal line, but the booth review didn’t yield enough evidence to overturn the call:
