Auburn throttled top-ranked Georgia, 40-17, Saturday in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

No. 10 Auburn (8-2, 6-1 SEC) handed No. 1 Georgia (9-1, 6-1) its first loss of the season and snapped a three-game losing streak in the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry. The dominating performance kept the Tigers' SEC and College Football Playoff hopes alive and set up a winner-take-all Iron Bowl against Alabama on Nov. 25 to decide the SEC West.

Just saw Chip Kelly on SportsCenter and he was breaking down Slayton TD catch and KJs TD screen. Gave major props to Gus and Chip for the new wrinkles in the offense. Praised Stidham's deep ball as well.
