Once again, Georgia started off sluggish and trailed the Tigers 10-0 in the first quarter before scoring 10 unanswered points to tie the rivalry game at the half.
The Bulldogs made second-half adjustments and were much more efficient in the second half. Quarterback Carson Beck, who made his first-career road start, made multiple clutch throws that helped lead the Dawgs to victory.
Star tight end Brock Bowers looked like a Heisman candidate. The Mackey Award winner finished the game with eight catches for 157 yards and the game winning touchdown.
The Bulldogs defense allowed 219 yards rushing, but held strong when Georgia needed it most, sealing the game with an interception by star safety Malaki Starks.
Here’s where Georgia stands in the opinion of Bulldog fans after the Auburn game:
Another slow start. Even if we win this game we’re gonna get bent over by a good team playing like this

Carson Beck struggles at first, answers late
Carson Beck is such a different QB when he plays with confidence and swagger. We gotta find a way to bring that out of him for 60 minutes.

I’ll say it right now, I don’t know where this team would be without the pass protection and vision out of the backfield from Daijun EdwArds pic.twitter.com/vkQMTQL9g4

Brock Bowers is a generational talent
Auburn threw for 88 yards and played an extremely close game with Georgia. Embarrassing. Not as embarrassing as USC though.

Carson Beck came through on the road
Survive and advance
I say it over and over, you have to knock a champion OUT, not down for the count. Credit to #Aub , they played their asses off, but when #UGA needed to make plays, they made them. Carson Beck showed up BIG TIME in 2nd half..

The UGA pass blocking was great
Final: Georgia 27, Auburn 20
The No. 1 Dawgs escape with a big win.
Carson Beck held his own and proved to be comfortable today. He was a machine in the second half.
