Auburn Tigers QB Cam Newton is playing, and scored a touchdown on Auburn’s opening drive. Newton ran 31 yards before going down near the goal line. After review, the refs ruled he had broken the plane. Newton has 44 yards in two carries, with one completion for seven yards. Auburn has 67 total rushing yards so far.
The Georgia Bulldogs responded with a 31-yarder of their own from QB Aaron Murray to WR A.J. Green. Murray threw five times, completing three, and took a shot to the chin. After bleeding on his jersey, he’s changed to a spare on the sideline. RB Caleb King also carried twice for 16 yards.
Newton then threw an interception to safety Baccari Rambo that could be blamed largely on his receiver, with Murray taking quick advantage. A nine-yard toss to FB Shaun Chapas has the previously fired-up Jordan-Hare crowd suddenly quiet. Murray is on pace to throw like 16 touchdowns, empowered by eight Newton interceptions.
