UGA Vs. Auburn Score: Cam Newton Throws Another And Tigers D Holds, Auburn Up 42-31

Auburn Tigers TE Philip Lutzenkirchen has to be one of the nation’s most efficient touchdown catchers — he now has four this season on only 11 catches. QB Cam Newton is now 12 of 15, with at least one of those incompletions a drop, for 147 yards and two touchdowns pus 139 yards and a touchdown on the ground. HEY CAM NEWTON IS PLAYING TONIGHT.

On the preceding drive, the Georgia Bulldogs drove to Auburn’s 11 before a pair of Aaron Murray incompletions forced a Blair Walsh field goal. A field goal! In this game!

Mark Richt played to win on the Dawgs’ post-touchdown drive, going for it on 4th and 13 from Georgia’s own 27. Murray had a receiver open on the other side of the marker, but Auburn’s pass rush got to him yet again. They’ve sacked him three times, but hit him throughout and forced several scrambles and throwaways. If Newton’s offense gains 27 more yards, they’ve won the SEC West.
