The Auburn Tigers are putting some serious heat on No. 1 Georgia.
Auburn started slow on both sides of the ball after surrendering a touchdown on the first drive of the game and managing to come away with only field goals for much of the first half.
Auburn’s defense has since settled in and kept the Bulldogs offense in check throughout the second quarter. The Tigers took a 9-7 lead behind its defense and kicker Daniel Carlson, but the offense finally broke free with a big play with just over four minutes to go before halftime.
A personal foul penalty on Georgia kept the Tigers drive alive before Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham unleashed a beautiful throw downfield. He found Darius Slayton for a 43-yard touchdown that increased the Tigers lead to 16-7.
Here is the play from the SEC on CBS with Slayton providing an incredible grab:
