Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia tight ends were targeted by quarterback Aaron Murray in the first half versus Auburn on Saturday.

Lynch matched a career high with three catches for 29 yards, while Rome caught two balls for 17 yards in the first half against Auburn. Coming into the game, the tight ends combined for four catches or less in every game this season.
