Challenges for Alabama

This Auburn team looks really down but Alabama can’t afford to sleepwalk into this game. Robby Ashford is Auburn’s quarterback. He’s a freshman that was probably thrust into the limelight too early. He’s played about par for a freshman. So far this season he has connected on 112 of 227 passes for 1,536 yards, six touchdowns and seven interceptions. He’s better as a runner than a passer with 589 yards rushing for five touchdowns. He ran for over 108 yards a couple of weeks ago at Mississippi State.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
