Georgia Bulldogs Vs. No. 2 Auburn Tigers: Recap Of The 2009 Game

In last year's contest between the Auburn Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs, both teams were looking to gain some momentum before they took on their in-state rivals in Alabama and Georgia Tech. Auburn came into the game with a 7-3 record while the Bulldogs were coming in with a 5-4 record.

Auburn got the scoring started early as Auburn quarterback Chris Todd threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter to put the Tigers up by 14 and it looked as if it was going to be another long day for the Dawgs. However, the offense woke up in the second quarter as Joe Cox threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Israel Troupe to cut the Tigers lead to seven.

The Bulldogs tacked on 10 more points in the third quarter with Blair Walsh FG and a Washaun Ealey touchdown run to tie the game at 17. Then it was the Caleb King show as he scored on a 11-yard run to give the Bulldogs the lead and when Auburn answered with a Demond Washington 99-yard kick return to tie the game yet again, King scored 24-yard run to give the Dawgs the lead.

Auburn had one last chance to tie the game, but Bacarri Rambo made a game-saving hit on Mario Fannin who would have scored and tie the game if Rambo did not hit him and jar the ball loose. It was a memorable play and helped earn Georgia the 31-24 win over their oldest rivals. Here's footage of King's two touchdowns during last year's game against Auburn. Can he do it again and help the Dawgs come away with a huge win?
