ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Caleb King ran for two fourth-quarter
touchdowns, Bacarri Rambo made a jarring tackle that likely saved
the tying score and Georgia assured itself of bowl eligibility,
beating Auburn 31-24 Saturday night for its fourth straight win in
the Deep South's oldest rivalry.
The Bulldogs (6-4, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) looked like they
were headed for a blowout loss when Auburn (7-4, 3-4) scored on its
first two possessions for a 14-0 lead. But Georgia rallied, taking
the lead for good on King's second TD run from 24 yards out with
Auburn was driving to force overtime when Chris Todd lofted a
pass over the middle for Mario Fannin, who was hauling it in at the
goal line until Rambo flew out of nowhere to knock the ball away.
Rambo appeared to be knocked out and was carried off the field on a cart, the extent of his injuries not known, though he appeared to raise his arms for the crowd.
