AUBURN, Ala., Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Nick Marshall found Ricardo Louis on a 73-yard touchdown pass with 25 seconds left Saturday, allowing ninth-ranked Auburn to overcome Georgia 43-38.

The Tigers (10-1, 6-1 SEC) had coughed up a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter and were trailing 38-37 lead entering the game's final minute.

On the winning play, Marshall was facing a fourth-and-18 from his own 27-yard line when he unloaded the ball down the middle toward Louis, who was double-teamed.

Bulldogs safety Tray Matthews touched it first, knocking it into the air, but Louis then hauled it in and ran untouched into the end zone.

Marshall completed 15-of-26 passes for 229 yards and added two rushing touchdowns for Auburn, which notched a seventh straight victory and set up a winner-take-all showdown with No. 1 Alabama for the SEC West title in the annual Iron Bowl game.

Louis made four grabs overall for 131 yards.

Tre Mason added a TD on 27 carries for 115 yards.

Georgia (6-4, 4-3) was led by senior quarterback Aaron Murray, who racked up 415 yards with two scores and one interception on 31-of-46 efficiency.

He also ran for a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter.
