ATLANTA — Auburn is on the board first in the SEC Championship Game.
The Tigers got some help from Georgia on their first drive of the game after a bit of a shaky start. The Bulldogs were called for pass interference and then for a substitution infraction.
Running back Kerryon Johnson did start for Auburn and was involved in the action early, but it was quarterback Jarrett Stidham who found Nate-Craig Myers for the first touchdown of the day.

With Johnson being a question mark heading into the SEC title game, Stidham’s play will be critical. The Stephenville, Texas, native’s play in the Tigers’ first meeting with Georgia and also in the Iron Bowl was key.
Craig-Myers caught 2 passes for 28 yards) in Auburn’s upset over No. 1 Alabama after catching 2 balls during the previous four games. So far during his sophomore season, Craig-Myers has 12 receptions for 225 yards.
