Stopping the Sensei: Georgia relishes challenge of Auburn's Jeff Holland

At the time, Georgia already had clinched the SEC East title, while Auburn still had to beat Alabama to get to Atlanta. Utilizing College Football Playoff Selection Committee Rankings.

This marks the seventh rematch in the SEC Championship Game history and the first since Auburn beat SC 56-17 in 2010. Holland's celebrations stem from "The Karate Kid" and started to become a trend during Auburn's week-four victory over Missouri, and Georgia hopes it doesn't continue. One game you absolutely have to watch will be the 2017 SEC Championship between the No. 2 Auburn Tigers (10-2) and the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs (11-1). On the ground, Nick Chubb rushed for 27 yards and a touchdown in 11 carries while Sony Michel added 21 yards in nine attempts.

I do not buy into the "Auburn can not continue to be so hyped up for all of these games" that seems to be coming out of Athens, Georgia. Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm did throw for 184 yards, but that was on 13 of 28 attempts. The Bulldogs have the fewest passes (222) and completions (134) in the SEC.

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. Kam Martin and Devan Barrett have been hungry for a situation like this all year. Consequently, Auburn was able to stymie Georgia's flow and give the Bulldogs their first loss of the season - at a 23-point margin, no less.

For the second time this season Auburn and Georgia will face off, only this time the stakes are much higher.

Auburn's main concern is the health of Kerryon Johnson. Maybe Georgia will, too - in the two games since that loss at Jordan-Hare Stadium, the Bulldogs have bludgeoned Kentucky and Georgia Tech.

Welcome to the 2017 SEC Championship Prediction edition of SEC Football Predictions. For the Chick-Fil-A kickoff game last summer, officials say thousands of fans were ripped off because they bought counterfeit tickets. By winning the Iron Bowl over rival Alabama, Auburn held the head-to-head tiebreaker to win the division. They haven't played a team of that caliber just yet. Chip Lindsey said that Kam Martin can run the ball 25-30 teams if needed, so the Auburn coaches are clearly confident in their backup running backs.

"Physicality", he said, no doubt remembering lost battles up front three weeks ago. Auburn's offense is going to put enough points on the board for the defense to win this game. Auburn will win and they will win big.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart had a one-word answer when asked what is the most important area in which his team must play better against Auburn.
