Auburn upsets Georgia with a great performance Auburn hosted Georgia and made the most of the energy of the home crowd. They struggled a bit in the early going as Georgia was playing with great energy and the defenders were seeing the ball and going to get it. We had two interceptions in that first half, returning one of them for a touchdown. Auburn's field goal to start the game was followed up with a 14-yard touchdown run by Thomas Cody, who eluded an insta-blitz off play action in the backfield then ran forward looking for a receiver but found none. He had an easy time up the middle. The following drive Reshad Jones intercepted Kody Burns and returned it 72 yards for a touchdown. It looked like Georgia was rolling. In my opinion the game-changing "moment" was not a moment at all but a 13-play, nearly 5-minute drive in which we tried everything in our defensive playbook and still could not stop Auburn from marching down the field. Xavier Barnes topped off the drive with a 13-yard touchdown run off tackle. It looked like Georgia was too tired to give chase. On the ensuing kickoff, my wideout was running at full speed but then let the defender stop him dead in his tracks and strip the ball free. It was returned for a touchdown. With a minute left, we put together a quick drive and then kicked a field goal to go into halftime tied at 17-17. We got the ball back to start the second half and the Auburn D ripped another ball free, then scored on a 1-yard QB keeper to take a 7-point lead. We tried to stay in the game, which was turning into a shootout due to our lapses and inability to hold on to the football, as we scored on a 2-yard run to tie it. The Auburn offense had an answer for everything we tried in the second half. I felt like I knew what was coming a few times but manually was not able to make the plays. you're not going to stop anything auburn does without manually doing it, they know the game too well. And as I whiffed on play after play attempting to do it manually I could feel the game slipping away. A.J. Green helped them to salt it away by fumbling twice after that, both times on long gains down the field. Just a bad day all around for us, a good performance by them, and that's all she wrote.
