The SEC had a titanic matchup last week, with LSU knocking off Alabama. Another epic matchup is on deck as the No. 4 ranked Georgia Bulldogs will hit the road to face off against the No. 12 Auburn Tigers. This one could also have huge ramifications on the College Football Playoff, as the Bulldogs are right in that midst with its 8-1 record on the season.
Georgia is a very talented team but it has very little margin for error in the national championship race as a loss in this one could be a decisive blow. The Tigers will have a raucous home crowd behind them and will look to spring the mini upset and improve their chance at a prestigious bowl game.
This college football regular season game between the Georgia Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers will be held at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 16th, 2019. The game will be nationally televised on CBS.

Georgia may be on the road but it has been listed as the three-point favorite in this matchup. The Bulldogs are -140 on the moneyline while Auburn is the +120 underdog to pull the upset. This is expected to be a defensive slugfest as the scoring total is listed at only 40 points. The “over” has been the more popular pick early in the week.
10.1. That’s the number of points Georgia is allowing this season, which is a stingy mark that few teams can compare to this year. The Bulldogs are fresh off a dominant shutout win over the Missouri Tigers, which was their second shutout in three weeks.
Georgia is giving up only 260.3 total yards per game, including only 185.8 yards per game through the air. Auburn is averaging 32.7 points per game and is rolling up more than 425 yards of total offense per contest. Quarterback Bo Nix will aim to solve the Georgia defense. He has thrown for 1,798 yards this season with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, and must keep the turnovers to a minimum against a Georgia defense that is chock full of playmakers.
Player To Watch
Jake Fromm -- The Bulldogs’ quarterback is a talented player but he has been up and down this season. While the overall numbers look good, Fromm has had some clunkers. He threw three interceptions in the team’s lone loss this season to South Carolina and the next week only threw for 35 yards, albeit in a tropical storm.
Fromm has thrown for four touchdowns without an interception in his past two outings and if he can keep that up the Bulldogs will be in good shape. However, Auburn has some ballhawks who hope Fromm makes a mistake or two in this one.
College Football Pick
While Georgia’s defense is strong, Auburn has enough good players on offense to keep this one close. It should be a really close game, and the Tigers have enough of a cushion to cover the spread. However, Georgia is going to pull off a nailbiter to pick up the much-needed victory to stay in the College Football Playoff race.
College Football Pick: Georgia Bulldogs 21, Auburn Tigers 20
