Despite well-worn cliches about throwing the record books out in the Iron Bowl series between bitter arch-rivals Auburn and Alabama, the favorite has tended to win this game more years than not. With Vegas pegging # 1 ranked and undefeated Alabama an 18.5 point favorite, it does not appear to point toward a major upset this Saturday, November 26th.
Or does it?
Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean as they discuss the Tigers’ probable “narrow path” to what at least “experts” would call a major upset over Bama. The Tigers will, in fact, be fielding possibly the deepest, most fierce defense the Tide has faced all year, according to head coach Nick Saban himself in his Monday presser.
But will Malzahn find the formula, even as his offense has been dealt a barrage of injuries, to sustain drives, get Groza Award finalist kicker Daniel Carlson in field goal range multiple times, and find the end zone through the air since this Tide defense rarely surrenders a TD on the ground?
