The Dawgs Beat Auburn 45-20 After Blacking-Out Sanford Stadium

HOOVER, Ala. – Looks like Georgia left behind more than a few ruffled feathers during its seven-game winning streak to end its 2007 season.

Urban Meyer and Florida aren’t the only ones who have some bitter memories about its game against the Bulldogs. Meyer didn’t like Georgia’s end zone celebration in a 42-30 Bulldogs win.

Auburn defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks is still smarting from the 45-20 whipping the Tigers suffered last season at Georgia.

“Their team embarrassed us,” Marks said Friday at SEC Media Days. “They’ve beat us two years in a row but last year, they went black out. They danced on us. The mascot danced on us. The ballboy danced on us and the commentators even did a Soluja Boy on us.”

Auburn players apparently are circling the Nov. 15 rematch on the Plains.

“I know the coaches are going to be terrible during that week,” Marks said. “They are going to be putting a lot on us that week but the players, we’re going to be a whole different level of what we want to do those guys.”
