Georgia had yet to produce much offense against Auburn in the first half.
The only thing they put up was a goose egg on their half of the scoreboard. Maurice Smith changed all that.
On the first drive of the second half, Auburn quarterback Sean White dropped back to pass and Maurice Smith jumped the route. He got behind a large convoy of Bulldogs, who did most of the work to lead him to the endzone and tie the game at 7-7. Smith only had to make one Auburn player miss on his way to six points.

Georgia faked a blitz and then only brought four players on the rush while dropping seven players into coverage. Smith’s interception was his second of the season after also picking one off against Josh Dobbs in the loss to Tennessee.
The interception was White’s second of the season in 178 attempts entering Saturday. Georgia desperately needed the score after the Tigers held Nick Chubb to under 40 yards rushing in the first half while Jacob Eason managed just over 100 yards through the air.
