Auburn snaps Georgia's winning streak with 40-17 win

There will be a new No. 1 when the next College Football Playoff rankings are released on Tuesday.
    
Georgia's ground game was stifled by Auburn as the Tigers rolled to a 40-17 pounding of the Bulldogs. Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and the SEC's top ground game was held 46 yards, 233 below their season average. Meanwhile, Kerryon Johnson ran for 167 yards and caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Stidham to help the Tigers keep their CFP hopes alive.
    
Georgia special teams blunders helped set up three Auburn touchdowns, including a roughing the penalty flag in the first half. The Bulldogs fumbled away a punt return and had a 15-yard personal foul penalty in the third quarter when Auburn pulled away with two touchdowns.
    
Georgia dropped to 9-1 overall and 6-1 in the SEC after entering the game ranked second in the AP poll, eight spots ahead of the Tigers.
