Georgia Annihilates Auburn in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry Game

By: Justin Gray

The Dawgs have looked a little shaky the last few weeks, but this week was just the opposite. Auburn was in town and the Dawgs didn't care too much for them. Auburn has had a rough start, coming into the game, 3-2.

Both teams came out of the gate slow, but after a 0-0 first quarter, it didn’t take long for the Dawgs to get rolling. With 11:42 left in the second, Kenny McIntosh ran it in from one yard to take a 7-0 lead. It wouldn’t take long for another touchdown and on the next drive Daijun Edwards ran it into the end zone for another bulldog touchdown. The score at half was 14-0.

The offense looked to come out and score fast in the second half, but they fumbled on the third play and gave Auburn the ball in the red zone. The Tigers picked up a field goal, but that was all and when the Dawgs got the ball back they drove it 81 yards for the score on another Daijun Edwards touchdown run.

This game was a blowout from there as the Dawgs only punted one more time the rest of the game. QB Stetson Bennett ran it 64 yards for a touchdown to make it 28-3. The defense, which isn't talked about enough, was outstanding forcing another punt. Daijun Edwards then ran in his third touchdown of the day to make it 35-3. Auburn threw a long ball that was accurate and ran in for a touchdown.

On the next Georgia drive, the Freshman running back Branson Robinson ran it in from fifteen yards out to finish off the win, 42-10. The offensive notables were Branson Robinson, 98 yards and a touchdown, Daijun Edwards 83 yards and 3 touchdowns. Stetson Bennett threw for 208 yards and ran for 64 yards and a touchdown. The Dawgs are getting hot and they take on Vanderbilt at home next Saturday at 3:30 P.M.
