Georgia gets revenge on Auburn in SEC title game
ATLANTA, Ga. -- Nick Chubb and Sony Michel made headlines last offseason when they announced they would be returning to Georgia for their senior seasons. Tonight, they led the way for the Bulldogs to claim their first Southeastern conference championship since 2005, beating Auburn by a final score of 28-7.
After a blowout loss at Jordan-Hare Stadium three weeks ago, the Bulldogs came into Mercedes-Benz tonight with something to prove. Head coach Kirby Smart stressed all week about how his team needed to be more physical at the line of scrimmage, and it would appear his message was received loud and clear by his team.
The Bulldogs rushed for 238 yards tonight after being held to 46 in their previous matchup with the Tigers. Two freshmen led the way for the Bulldogs on offense, with running back DeAndre Swift rushing for 88 yards and a touchdown, and quarterback Jake Fromm throwing for 183 yards and two touchdowns.
Georgia was ranked No. 6 in the College Football Playoff rankings coming into this game, and now looks poised to step into the top-4 and play for a chance at a national championship.
The College Football Playoff selection show will be Sunday, Dec 3 at 12:00 p.m. on ESPN.
