No one expected the beatdown No. 10 Auburn put on No. 1 Georgia on Saturday afternoon.

Even those who were picking the Tigers to win didn’t think it would be a 40-17 final score, but that’s exactly what happened at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

For Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, the big win takes some pressure off of him as he tries to save his job. For the team, the win keeps them in the College Football Playoff hunt.

After the big home victory, Malzahn was obviously thrilled with his team’s performance. Here’s what he had to say after the lopsided win:
