  Georgia vs. Auburn Part 2

Georgia and Auburn battle for the SEC title in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta. The game can be seen on CBS at 3:00 pm CT.

In the first meeting between the rivals on Nov. 11, Auburn won easily 41-17 at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn's stingy defense held Georgia's rushing attack to just 46 yards, with Nick Chubb rushing 11 times for 27 yards and Sony Michel gaining only 21. Quarterback Jake Fromm was 13-of-28 passing for 184 yards and a late touchdown pass.

A healthy Kerryon Johnson finished the contest with 167 rushing yards and also caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from Jarrett Stidham. On the afternoon, Stidham was 16-of-23 passing for 214 yards with three touchdowns.

Before the 2017 season started, the Tigers wanted to make it to Atlanta for the title game but after a disappointing loss to LSU on Oct. 14, that goal seemed out of reach. Auburn then won its next four games and a victory over Alabama would give Gus Malzahn's squad the trip to Atlanta

Facing No. 1 Alabama at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn took care of its arch-rival 26-14. Stidham completed 21-of-28 passes for 237 yards, while adding another 51 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Johnson rushed for 104 yards on 30 carries with two touchdowns before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.

Receiver Ryan Davis hauled in 11 catches for a career-high 139 yards. He also set the Auburn single-season record for catches with 69.

Saturday's appearance will be Auburn's sixth trip to the SEC Championship Game. The Tigers are 3-2 overall, including a 59-42 victory over Missouri in 2013.

Georgia will also be making its sixth appearance in the title game, with a 2-3 overall record. In 2012, the Bulldogs lost to Alabama 32-28.

On offense, Auburn averages 237.7 rushing yards per game, 232.6 passing yards per game, 470.3 total yards of offense, and 36.7 points per game.

Defensively, the Tigers allow 125.9 rushing yards per game, 177.3 passing yards per game, 303.3 total yards per game, and 16.4 points per game

Prediction: Auburn 27-20.
