It's rivalry week in college football and no rivalry surpasses the one in the state of Alabama, as second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Auburn Tigers in the annual Iron Bowl to close out the regular season.
Nick Saban's Crimson Tide may not get a chance to play for the SEC crown, but find themselves in perfect position to play for a national title, as they bring a 10-1 record into this contest. Outside of a three-point overtime loss to top-ranked LSU (9-6) a couple of weeks ago, Alabama has certainly looked the part of the one of the top teams in the land. The Tide were able to distance themselves from that loss to LSU with back-to-back wins over Mississippi State (24-7) and FCS powerhouse Georgia Southern (45-21).
Gene Chizik's Tigers are the defending national champs, but without the Heisman winner from a year ago running the show, Auburn has taken a could steps back, coming into this game with a 7-4 overall record. The team was also host to an FCS school last weekend, besting Samford, 35-16.
