Alabama vs. Auburn Football Series History

Alabama leads 47-37-1


This is probably the most publicized power conference rivalry game. Alabama-Auburn is also one of the more heated rivalries. What other fanbase has had some idiot poison their rival’s tree? This game is being played in Auburn which usually increases the Tiger’s odds of winning dramatically. This Auburn team acted like a bonafide upper echelon SEC team earlier this season. However, the Tigers have now lost three games in a row this season. I could be wrong but I think this Alabama team is good enough to win at Auburn this year. They know if they lose they are done in their quest for another national title.
