No. 2 Alabama is in position to get a rematch against LSU in the BCS National Championship Game, but first they’ll have to survive their Iron Bowl matchup on the road against the Auburn Tigers.

While the Crimson Tide are a heavy favorite this Saturday, the Iron Bowl has not treated them well in the past; Auburn is 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATS in their last nine games against Alabama.
