No. 7 Auburn hosts No. 25 Georgia in SEC matchup

(Continued)

ATHENS —

SPECIAL TEAMS: The Tigers set an NCAA record with an average of 44.85 yards on seven punt and kick returns against Tennessee, scoring both ways. Georgia has struggled in the return game, but Marshall Morgan's 10.0 points per game is tops in the SEC among kickers. Auburn's Tre Mason has scored a league-high 17 touchdowns, one on a 100-yard kick return early this season.

RUNNING WILD: Now that Georgia's Todd Gurley is healthy, this game will feature three of the SEC's top rushers. Mason has run for 1,038 yards and Marshall has gained 734. Gurley, though, opened the season as perhaps the SEC's biggest star at tailback. He has 625 yards and six touchdowns in six games. Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said he "may be the most physical back in the league."
