The Auburn Tigers have already beaten the Georgia Bulldogs once. Now, for his once unlikely path to the College Football Eliminator to continue, they will have to do it again. The two historical programs will fight in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET. The game will be aired on CBS ( live broadcast ).
Auburn then overthrown-No. 1 Georgia 40-17 on November 11 to keep his bet on being the first playoff team with two defeats alive. Jarrett Stidham threw for three touchdowns, and Kerryon Johnson rumbled for 167 yards as his team brought down a poorly prepared Bulldogs defense. However, it is possible that the Tigers can not count on their dynamic tailback in the biggest game of the season: Johnson has doubts about playing in Saturday's game due to a shoulder injury.
For Georgia, the key to revenge and a place in the tie-break will find a way to start your career game. The trio of Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and D & # 39; Andre Swift has been dominant in 2017 but fought against the Tigers. In that loss to Auburn, the trio ran only 66 yards on 24 carries.

The Dawgs arrived early at Auburn and often with the same races they had used to pbad over all the others. The Tigers responded with their same hybrid nickel defense that they had used against most others.
The game itself was the show Roquan Smith . Maybe we have someone on the wings who can fill their shoes next season? This guy is very smart at diagnosing where the ball will end and it was Tech's worst nightmare throughout the game. I've heard that everything from Smith, lined up as a defensive defense to a thief and a spy. Smith credits the Scout team for preparing everyone. I do not think there's a faster linebacker in the country than # 3.
Is Jarrett Stidham reaching his peak at the perfect time?
The transfer of Baylor is a type of quarterback very different from those who have started for Guz Malzahn in Auburn, but his serious step in the pocket has been a blessing for the Tigers. He has been at his best since descending 2017, completing nearly 73 percent of his pbades, throwing three touchdowns and not throwing interceptions in wins over UGA and Alabama. Another great performance could be the catalyst that throws Auburn into the college's postseason football.
Auburn's stifling career defense makes him the perfect foil for a great Georgia offense. Unless Jake Fromm can take a step forward and have the best game of his incipient university career, the Tigers take this.
