Advanced stats from Auburn's 43-38 win over Georgia on Saturday.

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

I was curious what this crazy game would look like when distilled of all emotion. The answer: almost dead even. Auburn owned the first quarter, Georgia owned the (first 14:30 of the) fourth quarter, and the middle was almost even.

For a more proper description of this game, however, I almost switched the font to Wingdings.
