The Georgia Bulldogs have found themselves in unfamiliar territory: Behind at the half.
The second-ranked Bulldogs, who are tops in the playoff rankings, trailed No. 10 Auburn 16-7 at halftime. It's the first time Georgia has been down at the half since facing a 13-10 deficit against No. 3 Notre Dame on Sept. 9.
The Bulldogs went 70 yards on their opening drive and managed just 35 yards the rest of the half. Star tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel combined for 39 yards on 17 carries.
They also had some big penalties, including roughing the kicker.
Rodrigo Blankenship missed a last-play field goal attempt for the Bulldogs. Auburn scored on three Daniel Carlson field goals, including a 54-yarder. Darius Slayton caught a 42-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Stidham.

Chubb did move past Auburn's 1985 Heisman Trophy winner Bo Jackson and into fourth place on the SEC's all-time rushing list. He came in 12 yards shy of Jackson's 4,303.
