SEC Championship Game: Dawgs Look for Revenge Against Auburn

Dawgs Vs War Eagles

War Eagles Whipped the Top-Ranked Dawgs a Few Weeks Ago

The fans at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the 2017 SEC Championship Game will see the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers battle it out. The Dawgs and the Tigers aspirations to make the College Football Playoff hinge on this all-important matchup. Game time is set for 4 pm EST on CBS.

These two teams met three weeks ago with Auburn defeating the then-No. 1 Bulldogs 40-17. They dominated Georgia the Dawgs in basically every facet of the game. This time there is one significant difference. Instead of playing in front of a stadium packed with Auburn fans, Mercedes-Benz Stadium figures to be more Georgia friendly.

Oddsmakers opened the Tigers as -1.5-point favorites versus the Bulldogs, while the game’s total opened at 51. The Dawgs are now a 2-point favorite and the total has dropped to 47.

Auburn Needs Big Days From Key Players Again

In the last meeting Auburn dominated both lines of scrimmage. That led to big days from running back Kerryon Johnson, who had 32 carries for 167 yards. Quarterback Jarrett Stidham had 214 passing yards and three scores.

Johnson has worked his way into at least the conversation for the Heisman Trophy by having rushed for 1,276 yards. He sustained a shoulder injury last week in a win over then-No. 1 Alabama. It will be a game-time decision on whether he will play.

In the past four games Johnson has rushed for 553 yards and three of his 17 touchdowns. He also has made 13 of his 21 receptions two of his scores.

Auburn’s defense has been top-notch all season. The Tigers held Georgia’s league-leading rushing attack to a mere 46 yards.

Dawgs Look for Better Execution

If the Bulldogs want to win this time around they will have to execute much better than they did the last time.

The Dawgs  average 265.7 yards per game.  Bulldogs running back Nick Chubb has 1,098 yards this season. Fellow senior Sony Michel has rushed for 903 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The Tigers sacked UGA quarterback Jacob Fromm four times and held him to 13-of-28 passing for 184 yards in the loss a few weeks ago.
