Georgia freshman back in lineup after suspension

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Freshman Isaiah Crowell will be back in the starting backfield for No. 14 Georgia's crucial game Saturday against 24th-ranked Auburn.

The Bulldogs believe Crowell has learned a lesson after failing a drug test along with two other tailbacks. All three were suspended for a 63-16 win over New Mexico State.

The stakes will be much higher this weekend when Georgia (7-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) takes on the Tigers (6-3, 4-2) in the Deep South's oldest rivalry. The Bulldogs are leading the SEC East and can claim a spot in the league championship game by winning their next two games against Auburn and Kentucky.

Crowell leads the team in rushing with 689 yards. But he's broken team rules at least twice, leading to disciplinary action.
