Alabama and Auburn square off this week in the newest game of the year of the century of the week, as the top-ranked Crimson Tide hope to hold off the No. 4 Tigers in the Iron Bowl. So let's talk about weather! And iron!
Fun fact about iron! The freezing point is the same as the boiling point -- 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit -- so no matter how cold it gets in Auburn Saturday, the Iron Bowl will remain unaffected. At least matter-wise. The internet seems inconclusive, meanwhile, on the freezing temperature for bowls.
The high in Auburn on Saturday is 58 degrees, with a low of 37. It's expected to be mostly sunny, with no clouds and a slight chance of rain. A slight wind is expected at seven miles per hour.
The game is expected to kick-off at 3:30 p.m. ET, putting the likely temperature in the mid 50s -- a reasonable level for a late November game. It's hard to imagine that gives either team any advantage.
