A large crowd showed up at the William T. Young Library for SEC Network’s weekly pregame show SEC Nation, but a lot of Kentucky fans left with a sour taste in their mouth.

To conclude the show, analysts Paul Finebaum, Tim Tebow and Marcus Spears made their predictions for the game, and Spears was the only one who chose Kentucky to win.

Spears’ prediction was welcomed by a large roar from the mostly Kentucky crowd while Tebow’s and Finebaum’s pick received a negative ovation.

Over on ESPN’s College Gameday, there weren’t many more believers as Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso and Alex Bregman, current MLB infielder for the Houston Astros and former LSU player, sided with Georgia.

Desmond Howard was the only ESPN analyst to pick Kentucky on the show.

Before the predictions, the show featured many exciting segments, such as an interview between Finebaum and John Calipari and Tebow picking his “freak of the week,” which was awarded to Josh Allen.

Kickoff between Kentucky and Georgia is at 3:30 p.m.
