The Georgia Bulldogs played well in all facets of the game in their 38-0 victory over the Auburn Tigers. The Bulldogs started the game on fire, scoring touchdowns on their first four possessions. As Tim Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes, offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said the Bulldogs fast start was all part of the plan.

We do no-huddle all the time, but we went a faster pace no-huddle with some set plays. ... (Auburn) had done a great job of defending pro-style offenses all year, and the spread had given them a little trouble. So we went with more spread in the first half and were able to execute it.

The first three drives all ended with quarterback Aaron Murray throwing for a touchdown, each to a different receiver, and Todd Gurley capped the scoring in the first half with a six-yard run in the second quarter. The 38-point margin of victory tied Georgia's 45-7 win in 2011 as the second largest margin of victory in the history of the series. The Bulldogs have won six of the last seven meetings against the Tigers.

Georgia next faces Georgia Southern on Nov. 17 at 1:30 p.m ET.
