AUBURN, Ala. – Georgia’s perfect season went south in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.

In a game televised live on WTKR-TV, number 10 Auburn crushed unbeaten and top-ranked Georgia, 40-17 in the 121st meeting between the two rivals.

The Bulldogs fall to 9-and-1 on the season, while the Tigers improve to 8-and-2.

AU tailback Kerryon Johnson accounts for 233 total yards rushing (167) and receiving (66) , including a 55 yard TD reception to put the Tigers up 40-10.

Next up for Auburn, the Tigers host Louisiana-Monroe in a non-conference tilt before likely new-number one ranked Alabama visits Jordan Hare Stadium in the season finale November 25th. The winner of that game (the Iron Bowl) will likely represent the SEC West division in the SEC title game – to be aired live on WTKR-TV.
