The Iron Bowl.
That's all that needs to be said in the state of Alabama, and people know exactly what's at stake. It's one of the biggest rivalries in sports (the biggest to many people in this state), and it's almost time for the 86th edition of the Iron Bowl.
Alabama locked up the West with the win over Arkansas on Saturday, and Auburn is riding a three-game losing streak heading into the rivalry game. That doesn't mean it will be easy for the Crimson Tide in Jordan-Hare on Saturday.
Even though Auburn doesn't have much left to play for outside of determining a bowl destination, they can still play major spoilers to Alabama's College Football Playoff chances.
It will be Alabama's first road game since Oct. 16 at Mississippi State.
