Auburn Tigers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide

The annual "Iron Bowl" between Alabama and Auburn will take place Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Last year's contest had arguably one of the greatest endings to any college football game all-time, as Auburn's Chris Davis took a missed field goal attempt and returned it 109 yards to propel the Tigers to the SEC Championship Game.

Alabama (10-1, 6-1 SEC) leads the series 42-35-1, and the Tide have won two of the past three contests. Alabama would wrap up the SEC West with a victory over Auburn (8-3, 4-3 SEC).

Alabama

11/22: Alabama 48, Western Carolina 14

Most of Alabama's offensive stars were pulled after halftime as the Tide built a 24-point lead before the break. Blake Sims threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns and Derrick Henry rushed for 92 yards and two scores as Alabama tuned up for its Iron Bowl contest against Auburn next week. 

11/15: Alabama 25, Mississippi State 20

Blake Sims passed for 211 yards and T.J. Yeldon added 72 rushing yards as the Crimson Tide beat Mississippi State for the seventh straight time. Mississippi State's five-week reign as the nation's No. 1 team ended in part thanks to three Dak Prescott interceptions. Prescott threw for 290 yards and ran for 82 more for the Bulldogs, who trailed by 16 at halftime. 

11/8: Alabama 20, LSU 13 (OT)

Alabama won its fourth-straight game despite possessing the ball for less than 22 minutes of regulation. Blake Siims completed 20 of 45 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns, and Amari Cooper had eight catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. The Crimson Tide limited LSU to 76 passing yards and just 183 rushing yards on 56 carries.

10/25: Alabama 34, Tennessee 20

The Crimson Tide won their third straight game by defeating the Volunteers on the road. Wide receiver Amari Cooper had nine catches for a school-record 224 yards to go along with two touchdowns to lead Alabama. Derrick Henry and T.J. Yeldon combined for 130 rushing yards as the Crimson Tide racked up 183 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

10/18: Alabama 59, Texas A&M 0

Alabama scored 35 points in the second quarter to break the game open en route to a blowout win over Texas A&M. Blake Sims completed 16 of 27 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns, while Amari Cooper had eight catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns. The Crimson Tide rushed for 298 yards and four touchdowns as a team, including 114 yards and two touchdowns from T.J. Yeldon. The Crimson Tide outgained the Aggies 602-172, limiting quarterback Kenny Hill to 138 passing yards.

Auburn

11/22: Auburn 34, Samford 7

Cameron Artis-Payne ran for 129 yards and a touchdown, Nick Marshall passed for 171 yards and a score as Auburn broke a two-game losing streak against FCS opponent Samford.

11/15: Georgia 34, Auburn 7

Nick Chubb ran for 144 yards and two touchdowns, and Todd Gurley added 138 yards and a score before leaving the game with a knee injury as Georgia controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball in a dominating victory. Auburn was held to 150 yards rushing, almost 200 yards below their average. 

Georgia kept its SEC East hopes alive with the victory, but following the game Georgia still trailed Missouri by one game despite beating the Tigers 34-0 on Oct. 11.

11/8: Texas A&M 41, Auburn 38

Auburn lost two fumbles late in the game as Texas A&M ended any chance of Auburn making it to the College Football Playoff. A&M quarterback Kyle Allen threw four first half touchdown passes.

Auburn rushed for 363 yards, led by Cameron Artis-Payne’s 221 yards, but three turnovers proved too costly for the Tigers. A&M came into the game a more than three-touchdown underdog. Texas A&M sealed the game when defensive lineman Alonzo Williams recovered a fumbled snap with 54 seconds left.

11/1: Auburn 35, Ole Miss 31

The Tigers came back from a 10-point third quarter deficit to win, effectively sealing the victory when linebacker Kris Frost forced a fumble of Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell at the goal line with 1:30 remaining. The play resulted in Treadwell sustaining a gruesome leg fracture. Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall had a season-high 254 passing yards, adding two passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns. Auburn committed 13 penalties, its most since 2002.

10/25: Auburn 42, South Carolina 35

The Tigers won a high-scoring affair against the Gamecocks at home. Auburn racked up 395 rushing yards, led by Cameron Artis-Payne's 167 yards. Quarterback Nick Marshall had 10 carries for 89 yards and three touchdowns. He also completed 12 of 14 pass attempts for 139 yards and a touchdown. South Carolina had a chance to tie the game at the end, but Dylan Thompson's Hail Mary was intercepted.
