Now on paper you might not think the upcoming SEC game between the 5-6 Auburn Tigers and the No.1 ranked 11-0 Alabama Crimson Tide, but if you anything about SEC football, its that Auburn vs. Alabama is all that matters when these two teams face off, and the fact that Auburn has won the last 6 games, makes this a real interesting matchup. Last week the Crimson Tide had little trouble taking down Mississippi State, as they walked away with a 32-7 win, while the Tigers nearly pulled off a big upset against Georgia, but fell just short 17-13.

Auburn is going to play its heart out there is no question about that, and thats sometimes enough for teams to pull off the big win or at least scare the crap out of the favorite. Against Georgia last week the Tigers played a lot better than anyone thought, as they actually had a 13-10 lead with a little over 11 minutes remaining. Kodi Burns threw for 179 yards and a score, but just couldn’t get the Tigers to make that one last drive to win the game. The Tigers did a pretty solid job running the football for 124 yards with Mario Fannin running for 59 yards and a score on just 8 carries. Now Alabama plays one hell of a defense, so its going to take nearly everything this team has to win this game, but with nothing to lose its sometimes a lot easier to pull of the huge upset.
