Georgia vs. Auburn Score: Bulldogs trouncing Tigers, 28-0, at halftime

Behind an almost perfect night from quarterback Aaron Murray, No. 5 Georgia is putting a hurting on Auburn, as the Bulldogs lead the Tigers, 28-0.

Murray has made mincemeat of Auburn's defense so far, completing 16-of-20 passes for 180 yards and three touchdowns. He got the scoring started on Georgia's first drive, capping a seven-play, 76-yard drive with a six-yard touchdown strike to Chris Conley. Murray would add a second touchdown on the Bulldogs' next drive of the quarter, hooking up with Malcolm Mitchell in the end zone on a five-yard pass.

Murray's third touchdown of the night went to a third different receiver, Tavarres King, who caught a 17-yard pass for a score on Georgia's opening drive of the second quarter. The Bulldogs' last score of the half came courtesy of Todd Gurley, who made a six-yard dash into the endzone on Georgia's fourth drive of the game.

The Bulldogs have scored on every possession of the game so far en route to 323 yards of offense. Gurley has 77 yards on just six carries, and King leads Georgia with 73 yards on three catches. The Bulldogs' defense, meanwhile, has shut Auburn down, keeping the Tigers to just 124 yards overall and only 11 yards on the ground.
