Alabama Has Been The Class Of The Iron Bowl

Alabama remains one of just two undefeated FBS programs entering this year’s clash with Auburn for the Iron Bowl. The Crimson Tide have been on the right side of the ledger in their rivalry with the Tigers, as Bama has gone 4-1 SU and ATS in the past five against Auburn. The Tide will look for their third consecutive Iron Bowl win, which hasn’t happened since 1992, when they host Auburn on Saturday.  

Shark Bites
  • Alabama is 12-1 SU and 10-3 ATS in its last 13 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • Auburn is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 games.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the past 4 games between Alabama and Auburn.

Ultimately, there is nothing on the line for Alabama in this game, as the Tide have already booked a trip to the SEC championship game and likely the College Football Playoff. Jalen Hurts continues to look spectacular, as the freshman quarterback has completed 73.6 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and one interception in Alabama’s past two games.

Auburn had a great tune-up game against Alabama A&M last week, winning 55-0 and getting to rest several key starters. The Tigers have got it done this season based on an old-school grinding style, as they are fifth in the nation in rushing per game and seventh in points allowed. In fact, Auburn’s offense has scored 26 rushing touchdowns in the past seven games while the defense has not allowed a rushing touchdown in eight games.
