  Week 11 SEC Predictions

Last week's predictions were 5-2, overall they are 60-21. This week, Auburn and Georgia continue the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry Saturday in Athens at 6 p.m. CT. The contest can be seen on ESPN. Georgia leads the all-time series 58-56-8.

Auburn at Georgia

The Tigers haven't won in Athens since a thrilling 31-30 victory in 2005. Last year the rivals met twice, with Auburn winning easily 40-17 at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and with Georgia getting revenge in the SEC Championship game 28-7.

The Bulldogs enter Saturday's matchup at 8-1 overall and 6-1 in conference play after defeating Kentucky 34-17 in Lexington. The victory over the Wildcats sends Georgia to the SEC Championship game Dec. 1 in Atlanta.

Quarterback Jake Fromm has thrown for 1,762 yards and 17 touchdowns on the season. Elijah Holyfield leads the team with 674 rushing yards on 103 carries with five touchdowns, while receiver Riley Ridley has hauled in 30 catches for 411 yards and five touchdowns.

Georgia's offense averages 38.6 points per game, 233.8 rushing yards per game, and 222.4 yards through the air. Its defense allows just 16.4 points per game.

Auburn improved to 6-3 overall and 3-3 in SEC play with a 28-24 dramatic win over Texas A&M. Quarterback Jarrett Stidham completed 18-of-29 passes for 239 yards. Darius Slayton had eight catches for 107 yards.

The Tigers struggled on the ground, gaining 19 yards on 21 carries. It was the fewest since gaining 18 against Mississippi State in 2000.

For the season, Auburn is last in the SEC averaging 155.2 rushing yards per game. It's unlikely Auburn will have a 1,000-yard rusher for the 10th straight season with three games remaining.

The passing game is a bit better, ranking No. 8 in the conference with 222 yards per game.

After gaining 278 total yards of offense against the Aggies, Auburn's average dropped to 377.2 total yards per game.

The Tigers still feature a stingy defense, allowing just 17.3 points per game, which ranks No. 6 in the SEC and 13th among FBS teams this season. The unit also allows 356.1 total yards per game, 222.2 passing yards per game, and 133.9 rushing yards per game.

Prediction: Georgia 27-17.



Miss St at Alabama

Prediction: Alabama 41-7.



LSU at Arkansas

Prediction: LSU 30-13.



Kentucky at Tennessee

Prediction: Kentucky 26-14.



South Carolina at Florida

Prediction: Florida 17-13.



Ole Miss at Texas A&M

Prediction: Texas A&M 30-21.



Vanderbilt at Missouri

Prediction: Missouri 34-21.
