On Saturday afternoon when the college’s football season comes to an end, No. 1 Alabama to see itself remain undefeated during the year when it takes on rival Auburn in the 2018 edition of Iron Bowl. Each year, Iron Bowl – one of the most story-driven rivalries in the game – carries some kind of weight in relation to the national championship, and this year it’s no different. With Tide the overwhelming favorite to win everything, Auburn would love for nothing more than show everyone that this vaunted Alabama team can really be stopped when hurting their confidence just before next week’s SEC Championship Game in the process.
Will Auburn make the two straight Iron Bowl win over Alabama or will Alabama cross into the SEC Championship Game with an unattended regular seasonal record? Let’s break down the matchup and make a pickup

Auburn: The Problems That Found For The Tigers In Game 1 vs. Washington is still on its way to week 12 – Offensive line battles make it difficult for drivers to come and quarterback Jarrett Stidham will keep his pocket clean. They have on average only 3.83 meters per berry in conference games, have given up 55 tackles for loss and coaches Gus Malzahn has not been able to find a way to train around the team’s shortcomings. However, there are not many deficiencies in the defense. Auburn is bound with Alabama with 87 tackles for loss, ranking eighth national. Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele is creative with his front seven, find ways to get different players in the backfield and is as disturbing as any group in the nation.
Alabama: Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa looked healthier towards Citadel than he has ever had in the past five weeks, and it has come to a perfect time. He threw three touchdowns and an average of 15.5 meters per attempt against Bulldogs, and retained his status as frontrunner for Heisman Trophy. There is a little concern with leading rusher Damien Harris, who suffered from a minor brain injury last week. But coach Nick Saban has accumulated a lot of depth to run back if Harris is not 100 percent. The front seven has been dominant throughout the year, and has not slowed down as the season’s gate has gone on.
Sorry, Auburn, but if you have not solved your problems now you’re not against Alabama. Led by Quinnen Williams, the defense comes to close Auburn’s crime, making it difficult for Stidham to set his feet and exploit Malzah’s lack of creativity with the crime. Having said that, Crimson Tide gives up too many points in Las Vegas. Auburn will hit some big gigs late to sneak back in the back door and cover the spread. Choose: Auburn (+24.5)
