ATLANTA (AP) - Mark Richt was stunned.
In a break minutes after his Georgia team scored its first touchdown early in Saturday night's game, Auburn fans suddenly cheered.
Richt says at first he didn't know what led to the roar from the home fans at Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium. Then he realized the Auburn fans were cheering top-ranked Alabama's loss to Texas A&M. The Alabama loss also could be big for Georgia.
Thanks to No. 5 Georgia's 38-0 win over Auburn, the Bulldogs will play in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Dec. 1. Georgia could move into the national championship picture if they keep winning, including in the SEC championship game, and more undefeated teams lose.
Georgia (9-1, 7-1 SEC), which plays Georgia Southern on Saturday, is rolling with four straight wins.
