Auburn and Georgia Game

The Auburn Tigers aren’t roaring any more.

The Auburn Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs, both ranked in the top 20 college teams, played on Nov. 14 for a game that college football fans have been looking forward to for a very long time. It was the knockout round of this season, so Auburn jeopardized its position in the playoffs that Friday, losing 7-34.

Georgia utilized their star running backs Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb to run the ball a lot throughout the game. Both running backs were almost unstoppable out on the field. They continued gaining yard after yard for the Bulldogs.

Although Auburn was the first to score, they lost their momentum when Georgia picked up the ball and propelled down the field with massive plays by both running backs. Without their energy, Auburn began to become lazy and, as a result, Georgia’s total yards in the game turned out to be 412 (more than a hundred more than Auburn’s 292 yards).

But all of the rushing yards Gurley ran were too much for his knee. In the fourth quarter, he barely limped to the sidelines, and Georgia has released information that his ACL is torn and will need surgical operation. This injury could be career-ending for Gurley, but we will have to wait and see how his recovery goes. Despite this major injury, Auburn has lost their position in the playoffs and Georgia moves on to the next game.
