Iron Bowl 2018 Live: Auburn’s season has been a disappointment. The Tigers began 2018 as a top 10 team and started the year by beating a very good Washington team.
2018 Iron Bowl Then came the losses. Against LSU (reasonable). Against Mississippi State (huh.). Against Tennessee (oh no). Against Georgia (reasonable, but also Auburn’s last chance to prove its top 25 bonafides). But Gus Malzahn can still salvage the season with one monster win during rivalry week.
The Iron Bowl will pit the Tigers against top-ranked Alabama in one of college football’s fiercest rivalries. As optimistic as Malzahn may be, oddsmakers aren’t confident the animosity in Bryant-Denny Stadium will translate to a competitive game on the field. The Crimson Tide, led by Heisman Trophy frontrunner Tua Tagovailoa, opened the week as a 24-point favorite.
Auburn vs Alabama prediction:
The S&P+ ratings unsurprisingly name ‘Bama the nation’s top team. Auburn clocks in at No. 15 despite four losses and a record that includes a win over Washington and zero other top 25 teams. That suggests the Tigers have a fighting chance Saturday … but have you seen Alabama this year? Tide by 30.
