Georgia-Auburn SEC Championship Game 2017 preview
Auburn enters the game perhaps as the hottest and best team in the nation. Twice this season the Tigers have knocked off the No. 1 team in the country, beating Georgia earlier in the year and then beating Alabama last week 26-14. Auburn has two losses but those seem like distant memories given the way the team is playing.
The Tigers are led by quarterback Jarrett Stidham, who leads the SEC in completion percentage with a 68.5 mark and a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 16 to 4. The Tigers also have a star running back in Kerryon Johnson, and despite picking up an injury in the Iron Bowl, it is expected he will play for Auburn. Johnson is second in the SEC in rushing and rushing touchdowns with 1,276 yards and 17 scores. Auburn also has the No. 3 scoring defense in the conference and the SEC’s No. 2 pass rusher in terms of sacks in the form of defensive end Jeff Holland.
As for Georgia, it is led by the one-two rushing attack of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Chubb is fourth in the SEC in rushing with 1,098 yards, ahead of Michel’s 903 yards. Each running back has 13 touchdowns on the year. The Bulldogs are quarterbacked by Jake Fromm, who took over for Jacob Eason when he was injured in the first game of the season and hasn’t looked back. The defense is No. 2 in the SEC in points allowed per game, surrendering just 13.8 per game. Georgia has one of the best linebackers in the country in junior Roquan Smith.
Auburn won the earlier matchup between these two teams, crushing the Bulldogs at home 40-17. Johnson was a monster in that game, rushing for 167 rushing yards.
