For the first time in its rich history, Auburn football and Georgia will meet for the second time in a single season when they square off in the SEC Championship Game.
Auburn (10-2 overall, 7-1 SEC) took the first matchup between the two Deep South rivals, winning 40-17 earlier this month. Now, the Tigers will open December with a title game showdown with the Bulldogs (11-1, 7-1 SEC), whose only blemish this season came on The Plains.
Gus Malzahn’s Auburn team clawed its way back into the national championship picture with a five-game winning streak that clinched an SEC West title and featured two upsets of No. 1 teams in three weeks. Kirby Smart’s Georgia team will be out for revenge and its first SEC title since 2005.
Once again in 2017, it’ll be Jarrett Stidham vs. Jake Fromm, Kerryon Johnson vs. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, Jeff Holland vs. Lorenzo Carter and “War Eagle” vs. “Sic ‘Em, Dawgs.” This time around, a trophy and a spot in the College Football Playoff will be on the line.
