Florida, who is currently the nation’s No. 2 team, is coming off of a 198.025-point performance against the No. 1 Oklahoma Sooners a week ago. Auburn is riding the momentum from their 5-0 start, which is the best start in program history. That streak continued in a 196.125-196.000 victory in Lexington last week. Auburn saw Drew Watson and Derrian Gobourne tie for the All-Around title as the two scored an impressive 39.350.

This meet’s outcome will have a lot to do with how the remainder of the season shapes out for the SEC, but don’t be surprised if these two meet again in New Orleans on March 23rdwhen the SEC Championship rolls around. The meet will be held in Exactech Arena in Gainesville, Florida, at 6:00 P.M. Friday night. It will also be broadcasted live on the SEC Network.

Atlanta, Georgia (EETV)- There's only one day remaining till the biggest game in football. Super Bowl Sunday is tomorrow as the New England Patriots and the Los Angelos Rams face off in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Representing the NFC, the Los Angelos Rams will make their 4th franchise appearance in the Super Bowl. The last time they made it was in 2002 when they lost to Patriots on a game winning field goal. The Rams made their way through the postseason knocking out teams such as the Cowboys and the Saints in an overtime thriller. The offense is led by quarterback Jared Goff who is fifth in the league in total passing yards. Running backs C.J Anderson and Todd Gurley have combined over yards rushing on the year. The Rams are averaging 32 points a game which doesn't play into the hand of the Patriots defense, who are giving up only an average of 20 points a game. On the defensive side of the ball, the Rams have a stout defense led by Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh who will have the task of stopping the deadly Patriot offense led by Tom Brady. Brady and the Patriots come into Sunday's game looking for their sixth title in franchise history. A win Sunday would be their second Super Bowl in two of the last three years. The Patriots made their way with a dominating victory over the Chargers and an overtime win against the Chiefs. The Patriots offense ranks fifth in total offense averaging 393 yards a game. Brady has accounted for 691 total passing yard this season which ranks first in the league. Keys to this game will be if the Rams defensive line can cause Brady problems. If the Patriots control the line of scrimmage, it could be a long night for the Rams. Prediction: Patriots 31 Rams 24
