It can’t be a week of college football rivalry with Alabama versus Auburn in the Iron Bowl. The annual game between the two SEC schools is set for another go-around at its regular location on the last Saturday of the college football regular season, this year Nov. 27 at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
College football week 13 is the last week of the season before we start jumping into conference championship games and bowl games, but there is still a lot at stake with games that include Ohio State vs. Michigan, Oregon State versus Oregon and Oklahoma versus Oklahoma State.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Alabama vs Auburn this weekend, including a quick game preview.
Alabama vs Auburn Match Preview
While Alabama v Auburn will not have an impact on whether or not Alabama makes it to the SEC Championship game (they are already set to play against Georgia on December 4), the outcome of this match will be crucial if the Crimson Tide is to defend last year’s National Championship. in the college football playoffs.
Alabama certainly have the CV to qualify for the playoffs, with just one loss and likely Heisman runner-up in quarterback Bryce Young leading one of the best offensives in the country, but this team is not without defaults. Alabama’s rushed offense has been inconsistent this season, ranking 71st nationwide. They have a solid backfield option in Brian Robinson Jr., who could very well eclipse 1,000 yards this season in the Iron Bowl.
Crimson Tide’s defense, while perhaps not as touted as some of their teams in the past, is still among the best in the country, ranking 8th overall in total defense. If they’re susceptible anywhere it would be in the passing game, as they rush the defense in the top 5, allowing just 85.9 yards per game.
Unfortunately for Auburn, they might have to rely on star running back Tank Bigsby to keep them in the game. Starting quarterback Bo Nix, who injured his ankle in a game against Mississippi State, will miss the rest of the season. Auburn’s passing game is nothing out of the ordinary, even with Nix as the quarterback, but TJ Finely doesn’t have the same experience as Nix that could be crucial in a game like this.
The fact that Auburn’s defense ranks 56th overall probably doesn’t worry Alabama too much, either.
Crazy things have happened in the Iron Bowl before (like the iconic winning game blow of six), but the punters enter the game as a 19.5 point favorite.
