Georgia Leads Auburn by 3: SEC Championship First Half Analysis

The first time Auburn and Georgia met this year the Tigers beat the Bulldogs 40-17. He also finished with a team-high 66 reception yards on two receptions with a late touchdown to seal the blowout victory. Under center for the Tigers is Jarrett Stidham, a sophomore whose 2,682 total yards ranks third in the nation.

It's No. 2 Auburn vs. After an Auburn drive gained no yards and ended with an incompletion on fourth down, Culp padded the lead to four points with a 36-yard kick with less than one minute to go.

The victor is essentially guaranteed a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Kamryn Pettway was once again a sure thing with the ball in his hands, racking up three touchdowns along with 90 rushing yards in an impressive offensive effort for the Tigers.

Series record: Georgia leads 57-56-8. "I got my money on Auburn". The victory meant Auburn had outscored Arkansas 108-23 in their past two meetings. Both went 8-5 a year ago, and Auburn looked down and out this season after squandering a 20-point lead at LSU.

Georgia's powerful offense is led by quarterback Jake Fromm and running back Nick Chubb.

Georgia is the No. 6 team in the nation and would make the College Football Playoff if they won in Atlanta on Saturday.

Offensively, Auburn football averages 36.7 points and 470.3 total yards (232.6 in passing and 237.7 in rushing) per game. The Newnan, Georgia, native is likely to have many friends and family in the stands and maybe even some of them will be wearing Bulldogs red.

As a result, Tigers fans questioned whether the Bulldogs might have had a "bounty" out on Johnson.

Auburn scored first, with Nate Craig-Myers catching a TD pass from Jarrett Stidham.

The Auburn Tigers (10-2) stunned the No.1 Alabama Crimson Tide, and probably will enter into the top four of the college football playoff rankings that will be released on Tuesday.

After seemingly sleepwalking through the first half, the Tigers turned on the jets to blow out their Sun Belt Conference opponent.

On the ground, Kerryon Johnson rushed for 167 yards in 32 carries while Eli Stove added 55 yards in four carries.

The Tigers completely dominated the then-No.
