Alabama trying for another Iron Bowl win

AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn Tigers are hoping to pull off a big Iron Bowl upset. No. 2 Alabama is seeking the first of what the Crimson Tide hopes will be three titles.

The unbeaten Tide is trying to win the state on Friday before taking aim at the SEC and the national championships.

Auburn offensive tackle Andrew McCain says anybody who follows college football knows the Tigers are underdogs. He says they’re still going to do everything they can to have a chance to win.

Alabama coach Nick Saban says you can throw out the records, rankings and awards in games like this.

Both teams are focusing on stopping the run. The game features two of the SEC’s top three rushers, Alabama’s Mark Ingram and Auburn’s Ben Tate.
