Alabama-Auburn Preview and Prediction: Tide Look To Keep Rolling

Alabama Crimson Tide at Auburn Tigers
Friday 2:30 PM ET TV: CBS

Line: Alabama -10

The Iron Bowl will be played for the 74th time, but this time on the Friday afternoon after Thanksgiving. Alabama leads the series 39-33-1 and won last year's contest 36-0, the largest margin of victory in 46 years.

Not much is different for Alabama this season as they are undefeated again with a rematch against Florida looming next week. But don't expect the Tide to overlook an improved Auburn team from a year ago.

Auburn is much better on offense this year largely due to the hiring of Gus Malzahn as the Offensive Coordinator.

But this game is going to swing with Alabama's defense which ranks first in total defense and rush defense in the SEC. Alabama's defense will be able to slow down the third ranked Auburn rushing attack and force Tiger QB Chris Todd to beat them. Oh yeah, Alabama is pretty good in pass defense as well.

Alabama runs away with this one in the second half, but don't expect a beating like last year.
