The biggest game in the SEC for week 12 in the college football season is the game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers. The Tigers continued their Cinderella season with a win over the Tennessee Volunteers and they continue to cruise toward the end of the season and a big game with the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl. Before that big game, however they have to stay focused when they host the Georgia Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs had an easy tune up win before heading into this game. Quarterback Aaron Murray threw a pair of touchdown passes to set the SEC career record, and Georgia broke open a close game with a dominant second half to beat Appalachian State and now will focus squarely on Auburn. The last time a Bulldog was the NCAA’s all-time career leader in a major statistical category was nearly a half-century ago. No, not even the great Herschel Walker accomplished as much, finishing his Georgia career in 1982 third in NCAA history in both career rushing yards and career rushing yards per game. Now they will hope to put up points against an Aubrun team that can run the rock.
Nick Marshall’s 214 rushing yards marked just the 25th time an Auburn player has rushed for 200 or more yards, and the first time since Cam Newton rushed for 217 yards against LSU in 2010. Auburn also scored on a kickoff return and a punt return which is the first time the Tigers have ever done both in the same game -- and set an NCAA single-game record by averaging 44.85 yards on seven combined kickoff and punt returns. The Tigers have one only loss this season and that was a road game against the LSU.
If they can carry over the momentum from the Volunteers win and beat the Bulldogs, the Iron Bowl will be the next big hurdle for this team. The Tigers have gone from worst to first and are still hungry.
