Challenges for Alabama
This game is always one of the top rivalry games of the season. Over the past few seasons, Auburn has been a thorn in the Crimson Tide’s foot with the Tigers winning three of the last eight games. Auburn was earlier this season on a cruise course to a major bowl but the chances of that happening now looks bleak after three straight losses, including the most recent head-scratcher loss at South Carolina. Senior quarterback Bo Nix directs the Tiger offense. So far this season Nix has completed 197 of 323 passes for 2,293 yards 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. Auburn has two quality running backs in Tank Bigsby (943 yards rushing) Jarquez Hunter (574 yards). These are all players that the Tide must account for if they are to win this pivotal matchup.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
