Challenges for Auburn

This is an important game, not only with playoff ramifications but for bragging rights in the state of Alabama. Stopping Alabama is about stopping quarterback Bryce Young. So far this season Young has completed 263 of 367 passes for 3,584 yards, 38 touchdowns and three interceptions. In his most recent outing at Arkansas, Young passed for 559 yards and five touchdowns. The Auburn defense has to get some pressure on Young if the Tigers are to beat Alabama yet again. Can Auburn beat this Bama team? It’s very possible but the Tigers must get a big-time effort from its players on both sides of the ball.

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.
