Borges Likes Line Play

Comments from Auburn's offensive coordinator are featured.

Athens, Ga.--Al Borges wanted to know where was the safety?

Where was Georgia's Greg Blue on the 62-yard, fourth down pass from Brandon Cox to Devin Aromashodu that set up Auburn's winning field goal in a 31-30 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday night?

Aromashodu, the senior wide receiver who made the big play, said, "Coach, he was just standing there and I ran right by him," Aromashodu said. "You will see it when you look at the film."

Marcus McNeill keyed a big night by Auburn's offensive line.

While the offensive coordinator and wide receiver discussed the big play, their fellow coaches and players were celebrating a victory in one of the most exciting Auburn-Georgia games in the 109-year history of the series.

On a night filled with big plays and 506 yards of total offense for the Tigers, no play was bigger than the fourth down conversion for the Tigers.

Borges said the way his Tigers played from start to finish, they didn't deserve to lose the game. He noted the same thing could be said about the effort from the Georgia Bulldogs, but added, "I am glad it wasn't us who lost this one. I am so happy our guys were able to find a way to win this football game. It was a great one.

"I will tell you something," Borges said. "That was a tremendous effort by our offensive line. They have really come on and are playing so well. They are a big part of our success in this game."

Auburn ran for 277 rushing yards to 142 for the Bulldogs and outgained the Bulldogs by 60 total yards.

"That rushing statistic is big," Borges said. "I think it had a lot to do with us winning the game."
