Auburn was a 51-7 winner in its last match at home against Alabama A&M. The game involved a non-board team, hence there was no line or total on it. Alabama A&M was unable to contain Tre Mason in its last action Saturday and the result was a 51-7 Week 12 loss against the Tigers.

In their last action, Alabama was a 49-0 winner at home against Western Carolina. The game had no spread or over-under wagering, as it involved a non-board school. Western Carolina didn’t make much of a game of it last time out, losing to the Crimson Tide as Alabama blasted them 49-0 in Week 12 action.
