Auburn and Alabama face off in Tuscaloosa for the Iron Bowl. Some say this is the biggest rivalry of college football. Depending on where you live you may agree or disagree with that belief. The fact is though that this has been a competitive series. Last years’ game was one for the ages. Auburn looks solid but several of their wins are tarnished by very controversial officiating calls or no-calls. That’s not Auburn’s fault but it’s still a fact.
Alabama has arguably the best offense in college football. They’ve convincingly won every game they’ve played this season. The Bama defense also seems to have improved. I believe Alabama wins this one. The only concern for Alabama is that Nick Saban will not be on the sidelines due to another supposed bout with COVID 19.
