AUBURN 10, Georgia 3

  • The Bulldogs possessed the ball twice inside Auburn’s 20-yard line in the first half, but came away with only a combined three points. For the season, Georgia has scored touchdowns just 15 times in 35 trips inside the opposition’s 20-yard line, or a red-zone touchdown percentage of 42.9. Entering the week, the national average for red-zone touchdown percentage was 60.9.
  • Entering the game, the Bulldogs were yielding a yards-per-carry average of just 3.8; however, in the first half, Georgia allowed the Tigers to average 8.5 rushing yards per carry (19-161).
  • After most of the week with the Georgia-Auburn point spread being a “pick ’em” or the Tigers slightly favored, the line closed just prior to kickoff with the Bulldogs being favored by a single point. Since the Auburn game two years ago in 2013, or a stretch of 26 games, Georgia has been favored in all but one game (Florida two weeks ago).
