ATHENS, Ga. -- Auburn started fast, but Georgia was ready for the long haul Saturday night in Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs used a combination of tailbacks Nick Chubb and Todd Gurley to run down the Tigers 34-7 on a cold night for the fans and Auburn.
 
Auburn's Cameron Artis-Payne came in, and left, as the SEC's leading rusher. But the Georgia combination of Chubb and Gurley was too much.
 
Artis-Payne pushed the 100-yard mark, but Chubb and Gurley combined for more than 250.
 
Much of the pregame focus was on Gurley, who was returning from a four-game suspension. But it was Chubb who did most of the significant running early for the Bulldogs.
 
No. 9 Auburn fell to 7-3 overall and 4-3 in the SEC. No. 15 Georgia improved to 8-2 overall and 6-2 in the league.
 
Auburn will try to get back on track against Samford at 6 p.m. next Saturday in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
 
Auburn scored first, but the Bulldogs bounced back, taking a 24-7 lead midway through the third quarter, then making it 27-7 late in the period.
 
There was nothing wrong with Auburn when the game started, surprising the Bulldogs with three straight passes to open the game and smartly marching 70 yards in 10 plays for a quick lead when Artis-Payne scored on a 26-yard run.
 
Georgia didn't score on its first series, but surely signaled it had come to play. The Bulldogs faked a punt from the Auburn 44, one that would have produced a first down near the goal line if a penalty had not sent the Bulldogs back, forcing a real punt.
 
Georgia held Auburn, and Auburn held Georgia, but the Bulldogs' next punt was fumbled by Quan Bray, setting up a Hutson Mason 6-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Mitchell that tied the game at 7-7 with 2:15 left in the first quarter.
 
Georgia was back at it late in the second quarter. Nick Chubb reeled off runs of 11, 12 and 19 yards before scoring on a 9-yard carry for a 14-7 lead with 8:48 left in the second quarter.
 
The Bulldogs put together another long drive before settling for a 32-yard Marshall Morgan field goal for a 17-7 lead with 29 seconds left in the first half. The Bulldogs had flipped the game by then.
 
Georgia, held to 50 yards in the first quarter, had 154 yards in the second quarter. Auburn, which had 121 yards in the first quarter, had 37 in the second quarter, 19 of which came on the next-to-the last play of the half.
 
Georgia scored on its first series of the second half on a 3-yard run by Gurley, making it 24-7.
