No.4 Georgia leads No.7 Auburn 24-3 at halftime in the Deep South’s longest-running rivalry. Stetson Bennett IV started as quarterback for the Bulldogs after coming in for D’Wan Mathis last week against Arkansas and has been keen. The ex-walker, who returned to Georgia after a stint in college, is 12 of 22 for 168 yards and a touchdown.Bennett led the 43, 59, 84 and 72 yard playoffs for a Bulldogs team that is 6 of 9 on third downs. His favorite target has been Kearis Jackson, who has six catches for 102 yards. Zamir White is Georgia’s top runner with 17 carries for 76 yards and two touchdowns. Auburn’s offense struggled to protect quarterback Bo Nix, 7 of 15 for 54 yards. Nix missed a wide-open Anthony Schwartz on a deep ball midway through the second quarter that would have given the Tigers much needed momentum on the road in a harsh environment.
