When the time came for the "Deep South's Oldest Football Rivalry" Auburn had found its self ranked #15 in the country. The Bulldogs of Georgia however were ranked 9th, and heavily favored.
Auburn had opened the season with a loss to Georgia Tech, and reeled off five straight victories before a crushing overtime loss to LSU in Baton Rouge. A two game win streak had the Tigers feeling their oats however, as Auburn would not quit. After eight lead changes, and several questionable calls by the refs, our men in Blue were victorious over our cousins from Athens.
Kenny Irons once again gave a tremendous effort with 179 yards while carrying the ball 37 times, with two TD's and a fumble.
In this, the 109th meeting of these two storied programs, the Auburn Tigers would hold a commanding 2 point edge in the overall series.
