Losing to Georgia is one thing. But getting shut out by their longtime rival brought a little extra pain to a lost season for Gene Chizik and the Auburn Tigers.
Auburn managed only 238 yards, including 57 yards rushing, as it was overwhelmed in a 38-0 loss to the fifth-ranked Bulldogs on Saturday night.
Auburn (2-8, 0-7 Southeastern Conference) has only one more chance for a conference win, at Alabama on Nov. 24.
''It's what you see,'' Chizik said when asked about the season. ''It's been frustrating. Again, it's just been one of those years where it has kind of snowballed in momentum and we haven't been able to catch any.''

Georgia (9-1, 7-1 SEC) got the first shutout for either team in the series since its 28-0 win in 1976.

Well, let’s give Gene Chizik credit for this: If Saturday’s 38-0 loss to Georgia proved anything, it’s that if the Auburn coach was going down, he was going down in style. Like they have most of the year, the Tigers were overwhelmed from start to finish, as the Tigers got beat down in most unceremonious way possible.
For Georgia, the victory was just about as easy as they...
Auburn has fired coach Gene Chizik.
Auburn announced Sunday that Chizik was dismissed two years after leading the Tigers to their first national title since 1957. The Tigers closed with a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama that was the second-most lopsided Iron Bowl game ever and worst since 1948.
The move came after a 3-9 season without any Southeastern Conference wins. It was the most...
Auburn fans demand coach's firing in song.
Auburn fell to 2-8 overall and 0-7 and the SEC with a 38-0 loss to Georgia. Gene Chizik's record as head coach against the Bulldogs dropped to 1-3.
Auburn coach Gene Chizik talks about the play of Jonathan Wallace, injuries, the future of the program, and more.
As if the first go round wasn’t enough, strike up the “Reuben Foster to Georgia” chatter yet again, now that it’s becoming even more likely that Auburn Tigers head coach Gene Chizik won’t be welcome on The Plains for much longer.
