Gus Malzahn agrees to new deal to remain at Auburn

Gus Malzahn agrees to new deal to remain at Auburn

Looking mentally and physically worn out, Auburn got pushed around by a bunch of hungry Georgia Bulldogs to the tune of 28-7 in what was a rematch with an SEC title and College Football Playoff berth at stake. He is the first to garner this AP accolade for Georgia since Mark Richt in 2002.

In Round 2, it was Georgia that returned the favor - with the defensive front often hurrying Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham when he went back to pass in the pocket and the offensive front opening big gaps for Georgia star running back Nick Chubb to run through.

The Bulldogs also had four All-SEC Second Team members.

The Bulldogs claimed their first SEC title since 2005 and capped an impressive rise in Kirby Smart's second season as coach. Kickoff is at 5:10 p.m. ET.

With that in mind, AL.com hands out position-by-position grades for Auburn's performance in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. He led the Tigers to the national title game in 2013, his first season.

Smith picked up another prize after the game: the MVP award. Auburn was ranked second in the CFP poll but managed only 259 yards after piling up 488 in the November 11 rout.

"You can do it for the chump change, but we did it for all the marbles", Smith said when asked about the payback.

Stidham looked like an National Football League quarterback on the first possession of the game when he zipped a pass into Nate Craig-Myers for the first points of the game, but he spent much of the rest of the game running for his life.

The Tigers' head coach has been linked to the job.

.

Auburn is 45-21 under Malzahn overall. "We wanted to show that we could play better than we did".

Auburn started out the game like it was headed for another big win.

The university said in a statement Sunday night that Malzahn and Auburn officials have "agreed to the broad outlines of a new contract extending his leadership of the Tigers" and expect to finalize the details over the next few days. That sudden change in possession ignited Georgia, which used a 16-yard run by Nick Chubb and a 34-yard pass from Fromm to Melcole Hardman to highlight a seven-play, 84-yard drive that culminated with a 2-yard touchdown pass from Fromm to tight end Isaac Nauta. But the Tigers were stymied by two crucial turnovers, a blocked field goal and a Georgia team eager to make up for its embarrassing 40-17 defeat on the Plains. It was a physical, tough game, and we kept our composure for the most part.

Georgia drove the other way for the tying score and tacked on the first of two field goals by Rodrigo Blankenship for a 10-7 lead at the half.

"We had some moments in there".
