ATHENS, Ga.  Auburn remained steady in the Top 25 Sunday, falling from No. 9 to No. 16  in the AP poll and to No. 17 in the coaches pol after a Saturday 34-7 loss to Georgia.

Auburn has already played four of the Top 12 teams and still has No. 2 Alabama on the schedule.

"We have to be big boys. We have to learn from it and bounce back. I definitely expect them to bounce back," said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn after the game.

The Tigers, the highest-ranked two-loss team last week, are the highest-ranked three-loss team in both polls.

Auburn, 7-3 overall, will try to turn things around in this Saturday's 6 p.m. game against Samford in Jordan-Hare Stadium, then finish the regular season on a high note Nov. 29 at Alabama.

"College football is you go on to next week,," Malzahn said. "The thing about Auburn is we're going to have high expectations and that's just the way it's going to go. You're disappointed when you don't reach some of your goals. That's part of it."

Georgia moved to No. 9 in the AP poll.
