  Week 12 SEC Predictions

Last week's predictions were 5-3, and overall they are 66-18. This week, the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry between Auburn and Georgia will be in Athens at Sanford Stadium. The contest will be televised by CBS starting at 2:30 p.m. CT.

In the series, Georgia leads 56–55–8. The Bulldogs have won the last two meetings including last year's game in Auburn 20-13.

Kirby Smart is in his first year as head coach at Georgia. Smart's squad is 5-4 overall and 3-4 in SEC play.

Last Saturday, the Bulldogs survived on the road at Kentucky when Rodrigo Blankenship nailed a 25-yard field goal as time expired for a 27-24 victory over the Wildcats to end a two-game losing streak.

Georgia has struggled with Smart at the helm as the defense is surrendering 25.9 points per game. Offensively, the Bulldogs average 204.3 passing ypg, 178.3 rushing ypg, and 23.7 ppg.

Quarterback Jacob Eason has 1,754 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. Receiver Isaiah McKenzie has 32 catches for 459 yards with six touchdowns while running back Nick Chubb has 146 touches for 691 yards with five touchdowns.

Auburn survived a close contest at home against Vanderbilt. The Tigers were sluggish in the first half with quarterback Sean White on the bench with an undisclosed injury. But after halftime, White entered the game and the offense came alive to help the Tigers win 23-16. With the victory, Auburn improved to 7-2 overall and 6-1 in conference play.

Running back Kamryn Pettway had 173 yards on the afternoon before leaving with a leg injury in the fourth quarter. For the season, Pettway has 1,106 yards on 173 carries and seven touchdowns.

The Tigers average 299.8 rushing ypg, 194.3 passing ypg, and 34.8 points per game.

For the second week in a row, Josh Holsey was at the right place at the right time to haul in an interception to seal the win for Auburn. On the season, Holsey has three interceptions.

The defense continues to be very stingy against the run allowing Vanderbilt's Ralph Webb just 46 yards and the Commodores to gain only 120 yards on the ground for the game.

So far this season, Kevin Steele's defense gives up 16 points per game. The unit also allows 125.9 ypg on the ground, 230.4 ypg through the air, and 356.3 total ypg.

On special teams, Daniel Carlson was good on three field goal attempts which gave him the title for Auburn’s all-time record holder for field goals made with 61, surpassing Wes Byrum’s 60 set between 2007-2010.

Prediction: Auburn 27-14.

Miss St at Alabama

Prediction: Alabama 42-10.

South Carolina at Florida

Prediction: Florida 17-13.

Kentucky at Tennessee

Prediction: Tennessee 28-17.

Vanderbilt at Missouri

Prediction: Vanderbilt 23-10.

LSU at Arkansas

Prediction: Arkansas 23-17.

Ole Miss at Texas A&M

Prediction: Texas A&M 35-17.
