Taking a look at the top photos and moments from the UGA-Auburn game.

The Georgia Bulldogs are moving to 5-0 after escaping with a 27-20 road win at Auburn.

Auburn capitalized on a pair of Georgia turnovers (a Carson Beck interception and a Oscar Delp fumble) to score 14 points off turnovers. The Tigers opened up a 10-0 first quarter lead before Georgia tied it up going into halftime. The Tigers rushed for 219 yards on Georgia’s defense.

Georgia tight end Brock Bowers hauled in seven catches for 148 receiving yards and a touchdown in the second half. Bowers and Beck helped power Georgia’s comeback. Carson Beck finished with 313 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception in his first career road start. Beck was steady and confident in clutch situations.

Georgia freshman kicker Peyton Woodring make two field goals to help the Bulldogs stay in the game.

Defensively, Georgia held Auburn to only 88 passing yards. The Dawgs have to improve their run defense. Georgia safety Malaki Starks made the game-sealing interception in the fourth quarter.

Let’s take a look at the top photos and moments from the Georgia-Auburn game.

Cam Newton pops up at Auburn for Georgia game

Cam Newton was hanging with the students before Georgia-Auburn

Auburn has an uphill battle in its SEC game with top-ranked Georgia on Saturday.

The Tigers could use one of the people who showed up to enjoy the action, their Heisman winner Cam Newton.

The former star quarterback was at the game and stopped by the student section prior to kickoff.

He was fashion resplendent, per usual.

Jimbo Fisher was only thing that stood between Auburn’s Eugene Asante and a TD

Why, oh why, was Jimbo Fisher on the field as play continued in Auburn-Texas A&M

Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher was in the wrong place. Fortunately, he didn’t attempt to make a tackle or get run over.

The 57-year-old Fisher likely would have been clobbered if he had gotten in the way of Auburn’s 6-foot-1, 222-pound linebacker Eugene Asante on Saturday.

Asante had collected a fumble and took off 67 yards for the end zone. He passed by Fisher on his way to six points that brought Auburn within 20-10 after the PAT in SEC action.

Initial injury report ahead of Texas A&M vs. Auburn

Ahead of Texas A&M’s SEC home opener vs. the Auburn Tigers on Saturday, here is the initial injury report for both squads

Texas A&M (2-1) is fresh off its 47-3 Week 3 victory over the visiting UL Monroe Warhawks last Saturday, finally getting back on track after falling 48-33 the previous week to Miami in one of their worst defensive showings in years. This Saturday, the Aggies will host the undefeated Auburn Tigers to open the SEC slate while seeking revenge after falling to the program in 2022.

Leading the way once against, sophomore quarterback Conner Weigman tore the Warhawks secondary to shreds, throwing for an efficient 25/29, 337 yards, and two touchdowns, including a 19-yard rushing score.

With star wide receiver Evan Stewart sidelined, Grand Valley State transfer WR Jahdae Walker exploded for five reactions, 110 yards, and a touchdown, only upstaged by veteran WR Ainias Smith, who led the game with seven receptions and 127 yards through the air.

On Monday, head coach Jimbo Fisher made his weekly media appearance to preview the Aggies’ matchup with the Tigers while providing several updates regarding the injury report after several players left the UL Monroe game early.

Leaving the game early, freshman right tackle Chase Bisontis and wide receiver Noah Thomas were both nicked up in-game. At the same time, Evan Stewart’s status was never disclosed. Still, as of today, Fisher stated that Bisontis, Thomas, Stewart, and possibly offensive tackle Reuben Fatheree II “should be good to go” against Auburn.

Starting center Bryce Foster and freshman cornerback Jayvon Thomas also missed Saturday’s game and are also expected to return this weekend.

Linebacker Austin Keys will likely miss the matchup for the Tigers due to a thumb injury, while cornerback Keionte Scott will be out as well.

Texas A&M will host the Auburn Tigers at Kyle Field on Saturday, Sept. 23 at 11:00 a.m., where it will air on ESPN.

Sooners latest to offer five-star 2025 WR Caleb Cunningham

Oklahoma was the latest to offer consensus five-star wide receiver Caleb Cunningham.

Emmett Jones has had a fantastic start to his tenure as the Oklahoma Sooners wide receivers coach.

He’s picked up two transfer portal commitments, five commitments in the 2024 cycle, and so far three pledges in the 2025 cycle.

Oklahoma’s 2025 wide receiver class looks formidable already, with [autotag]Jaden Nickens[/autotag], [autotag]Elijah Thomas[/autotag], and [autotag]Gracen Harris[/autotag] in the boat.

The Sooners are pushing hard for Oklahoma legacy Isaiah Mozee, a four-star receiver out of Lee’s Summit North High School in Missouri. Mozee’s father was a running back with the Sooners under Bob Stoops.

Oklahoma isn’t satisfied just yet, as the Sooners recently offered 2025 five-star receiver Caleb Cunningham. Cunningham is the number one player in Mississippi and a consensus five-star. He’s an ultra-talented receiver with an alluring blend of size and speed that he leverages well to dominate his opponents.

He’s very much a national recruit with offers from programs all over. He’s also a standout on the basketball court, where he finished his sophomore season averaging over 20 points a game.

Oklahoma is very much in this recruiting battle because of Emmett Jones’s ability to connect with kids. It will be interesting to see how this recruitment unfurls in the coming months.

College football’s top performers in the SEC during Week 2

From Will Rogers to Jett Johnson, the Southeastern Conference’s best of the best from the Week 2 slate.

The premier conference in college football featured a wide variety of intensity in its Week 2 slate. Seven of the conference’s 14 teams won their second games by three scores or more, including a 17-point ranked victory over then-No. 24 Tulane for Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss Rebels.

Three other teams were locked in one-score games, including an overtime victory for Mississippi State to stave off a furious Arizona comeback. The conference’s second-ranked team, the Alabama Crimson Tide, fell at home to a non-conference opponent for the first time in 16 years.

Whether they entirely outmatched their opponents or stepped up in a major moment, see what players stamped their name on this past weekend.

Beyond those two highly anticipated matchups, plenty of other SEC matchups are worth watching this weekend. College Sports Wire ranks the top five games in the SEC in week two below.

Week 1 Preview: SEC Week 1 Games to watch

College Sports Wire looks at four SEC games to watch in week one

While Vanderbilt got their 2023 season underway last weekend with a 35-28 win over the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, the rest of the SEC will begin their season this weekend.

The SEC race should be an exciting one this fall, with Alabama, Georgia, and LSU among the favorites not just to win the conference but also to potentially win the College Football Playoffs.
