Auburn fans not happy about Georgia's late hit on Kerryon Johnson

Auburn fans not happy about Georgia's late hit on Kerryon Johnson

It's championship weekend in college football. The victor of this game will nearly certainly earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.

In their previous showdown, Auburn convincingly defeated Georgia, 40-17.

Kickoff is at 4:00 p.m. ET. CBS will have the mid-afternoon telecast with Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson in the booth to call the title bout. CBS will broadcast the game live. Georgia went unbeaten in the SEC East (6-0) for the first time since the conference went to divisional play in 1992. That's the first time in school history Georgia has done that since the SEC created divisions with the inclusion of Arkansas and SC to the conference in 1992. From a coaching perspective, it'll be very hard for Georgia to change how it goes about beating a team scheme-wise, but the players are simply going to have to execute the plan better. Both went 8-5 a year ago, and Auburn looked down and out this season after squandering a 20-point lead at LSU.

Georgia was leading Auburn 10-7 at halftime. Their other loss came on the road early in the season to the No. 1 Clemson Tigers by less than a touchdown.

It's the best conference in college football, deciding their champion before what should be a raucous crowd in Atlanta. Who would've thought that at the beginning of the year?

Georgia was brilliant in 11 out of 12 of their regular season games in 2017. This game's over/under comes in at a combined 48 points. Auburn wide receiver Ryan Davis got a chance to show off his arm in the third quarter, firing a 62-yard touchdown pass to Darius Slayton that left the score 38-6. The first being Auburn is the hottest team in college football in late November. It may also be helpful in the passing game as Cox is solid at picking up blitzers from either the second level of Georgia's defense, or coming from the secondary either with a cornerback or safety blitz. Auburn had one more shot to answer but once again turned the ball over on downs. This game is shaping up to be one for the ages. The Auburn Tigers just have a lot going for them right now and seem like that team that's hitting its stride at the right time.

The Tigers now hold the No. 4 ranking in the College Football Playoff rankings, the final spot in the playoff. Be sure to tune in to CBS at 4:00 p.m. ET on December 2 to see Auburn take on Georgia in the 2017 SEC Championship Game.
