On the Auburn Tigers 73-yard scoring drive to close the half, Cam Newton accounted for all but three plays. Those three plays went for a total of three yards. The finishing touch was a 18-yard toss to TE Philip Lutzenkirchen in the end zone — the apparent red zone specialist now has three touchdowns in only ten catches this year. Newton has now accounted for 201 yards and two touchdowns.
As expected, neither of these defenses can contain the other team’s stars. Dawgs QB Aaron Murray has thrown for 137 yards, all but 23 of them to A.J. Green, with Green pulling in two of Murray’s three scores.
Auburn has outgained Georgia by 37 yards and owned the clock by about five minutes, while the Dawgs committed two more penalties than the Tigers. Georgia won the first-half turnover battle one to zero and gets the ball to start the second half.
