WATCH: Auburn attempts fake punt deep in UGA territory
Auburn, a four-point underdog on the road to Athens, empties the sack early against Georgia.
After a stalled drive where Auburn had to kick from their own 35, they decided to forgo the positional play on the field and attempted a fake punt.
The short field allowed Georgia, who had been contained until then by the Auburn defense, to come downfield and score a short-range touchdown to take a 7-point lead.
Hopefully Auburn can muster an offense to respond.
