The Auburn Tigers are making a bid to become the first two-loss team to make the College Football Playoff after dominating the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs in a 40-17 win on Saturday. 

Auburn’s two losses have come by a combined 12 points, including a 14-6 defeat against No. 4 Clemson. The Tigers’ end-of-season schedule could include another game against Georgia and the Iron Bowl against Alabama on Nov. 25. 

If Auburn defeats Alabama to win the SEC West and gets another win over Georgia in the SEC Championship Game, even with two losses, it will be hard for the College Football Playoff selection committee to argue against that resume.
