Auburn coach Gus Malzahn previews SEC title game against UGA

Asked about Razorbacks' interest, Malzahn says he's 'focused' on SEC title game

Auburn and Georgia will face off for the second time in about a month, this time with a title on the line.

Kickoff is at 4:00 p.m. ET.

Georgia and Auburn football fans are pouring into downtown Atlanta ahead of the SEC Championship game.

The victor of this game will surely be in the college football playoff. With the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium hosting the game, pay attention to the new (and much closer) option for MARTA station destination. "I think we get the best look that we can from our team (during the week on scout team)". Jordan-Hare Stadium has become a jungle and madhouse for the opposing team in recent years and that has not been more evident than in 2017. He will play in some capacity, it's just the capacity that's in question. A big part of Auburn's success will depend on the health of Kerryon Johnson, but the Tigers are good enough to win this game without him. It also improves Auburn's record at Jordan-Hare home against to 9-5. Georgia went unbeaten in the SEC East (6-0) for the first time since the conference went to divisional play in 1992. Johnson is everything to this offense, and if has to be limited for the majority of the game, Georgia has a shot to pull the upset. Georgia beat Kentucky in Athens, 42-13, and dominated Georgia Tech, 38-7, in Atlanta.

Auburn dominated Georgia 40-17 on November 11 in Jordan-Hare Stadium, but the Dawgs are out for revenge and the Tigers' playmaker on offense, Kerryon Johnson, is most likely going to be limited coming off a shoulder injury in the Alabama game. From an amateur, non-doctor point of view, the injury appeared to be some type of collarbone issue.

It's becoming clear that Kerryon Johnson won't start, but will likely play. Whether or not he is truly suffering from some sort of injury that will sideline Johnson or require surgery remains to be seen. Whether it be Isaiah Wynn defending the pass rush on the left side or the two guards trying to open holes in the run game, Auburn has Marlon Davidson, Derrick Brown and others to join in on making things hard. Four. That's just one first down for every running back that has seen significant action this season for the Bulldogs.

Georgia was brilliant in 11 out of 12 of their regular season games in 2017. To win, they would have to get well over 200.

"I've said over and over I think they're one of the hottest teams in college football", Smart said.
