AUBURN, Ala. ― Jeremy Johnson and Auburn's offense was sharp on their first chance Saturday, scoring in a quick fashion before settling into a close ball game in the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry.

Auburn led Georgia 10-3 at halftime in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Auburn scored on its opening drive when Kerryon Johnson took a direct snap and scored on a 7-yard run 4½ minutes into the game. Auburn didn't score again until Daniel Carlson kicked a 42-yard field goal with 32 seconds left in the second quarter.

That was his school-reccord 13 straight made field goal. 

Auburn's offense turned over some of the big plays to Auburn's defense, which turned away one scoring chance when Georgia failed to convert on a fourth-and-1 play at the Tigers' 2.

Marshall Morgan's 40-yard field goal finally cut Auburn's lead to 7-3 with four minutes left in the second quarter.

Johnson was 4-for-4 passing on the first drive. Jovon Robinson rushed for 28 yards. Johnson 7-yard TD run finished off the drive.

Georgia was set to get the second-half kickoff.
