Georgia makes playoff bid by routing Auburn to win SEC title

Complete financial details were not immediately available but the person says Malzahn will make more than $7 million in the final year of the deal.

When asked if Arkansas should even bother coming after him, Malzahn responded, "I'm the head coach at Auburn, and I just said I want to be the head coach at Auburn". He got his first collegiate head coaching job at Arkansas State in 2012. "We were all really, really excited players-wise, coaching staff-wise".

While Auburn failed the test with the title on the line, by no means should what this team accomplished over the course of the season be taken for granted.

With that in mind, AL.com hands out position-by-position grades for Auburn's performance in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. No. 7 Auburn (10-3, No. 7 College Football Playoff rankings) will face No. 10 UCF (12-0, No. 12) in the Peach Bowl on January 1. A Peach Bowl official eventually cut off questions unrelated to the game. He received a contract extension through 2020 last year, but his new extension has him under contract for the next seven years.

Brandon Marcello of 247Sports.com was the first to report the news on Sunday. His name popped up in hot seat talk as recently as October 14 of this season when Auburn blew a 20-point lead in a road loss at LSU, but the Tigers reeled off five straight wins following that game, including two over then-top-ranked rivals Georgia and Alabama over a span of three weeks. Roquan Smith came up with two crucial turnovers, freshman Jake Fromm threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Bulldogs cruised to a 28-7 victory over the No. 4 Tigers in the Southeastern Conference championship game Saturday. Auburn was 2-2 against playoff teams, including a 14-6 defeat at No. 1 Clemson in the second game.

MYL) — Mylan NV (NASDAQ
It offers pharmaceutical products in tablet, capsule, injectable, transdermal patch, gel, nebulized, and cream or ointment forms. The total amount of shares outstanding is 541.13 million, giving the company a market capitalization of about 20.24 billion.


Malzahn was Auburn's offensive coordinator in 2010, when the Tigers set a record for victory margin in an SEC title game with a 56-17 dismantling of SC.

The Bulldogs won their first SEC title since 2005 and their 13th overall, pulling them into a tie with Tennessee for second in all-time crowns behind Alabama's 26.

The program may have turned the corner this season with a strong defense and the emergence of quarterback Jarrett Stidham and tailback Kerryon Johnson. Auburn went 23-16 over the next three seasons and lost three straight meetings with both Georgia and Alabama.

Malzahn had talked in recent weeks about how much more stable the program is at this point after a series of highly rated recruiting classes.
