ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Stetson Bennett threw for 240 yards and a touchdown in his first college start, Zamir White ran for a pair of scores and No. 4 Georgia romped to a 27-6 victory over No. 7 Auburn in the first Top 10 matchup of the college football season.
The 2-0 Bulldogs buried Auburn with a 24-0 blitz in the first half, extending their domination of the Deep South’s oldest rivalry. The teams had traditionally played in November, but a revamped Southeastern Conference schedule moved the game up. It was their earliest meeting since their very first game in February 1892.
