Default Iron Bowl

The hype over this game is already starting. Who do you think will win, and why?

Absolutely no logical reason to choose Auburn, but I called them winning the Iron Bowl weeks ago. Again, no real reason other than gut.

Alabama... Because they score more points than Auburn

Seriously... I think Saban finds a way to slow the run and Auburn doesn't pass it very well.

I just think Alabama is due. The only time I think they've had to dig deep - really deep - this season was the 2nd half of LSU, and by then Les Miles Psychosis had taken over. So I just have nothing to judge them on besides their ranking

I just think Auburn's going to make some really big plays and pull it out.

You mean they didn't dig "deep - really deep" against A&M?

Manziel was able to do his thing regardless and I think they weathered the storm. As the season has worn on, things are different. Do you think Alabama could beat Texas A&M if they played next weekend, as opposed to September?

If the Auburn team that played in the 1st half shows up they'll win.

Well they did beat them in September, and yes I do.
You could look at it on both sides of the argument really. A&M's offense was fully rolling yet or Bama's defense wasn't fully rolling yet. (As it was the first conference game for both teams, and Bamas second game overall)

I see this game can be very comparable to Oregon-Stanford.
Bama O just grind it out all game and have long time consuming drives.
Keep the Auburn O off the field.

Default Re: Iron Bowl

I'm leaning more towards Alabama at this point. I think it will be a close game for maybe 3 quarters, but Bama will pull away in the 4th.

I say

Bama 27
Auburn 17

Yup.
I believe it's the First time ever the Iron Bowl has determined who goes to Atlanta.

Yep. They would both have one loss and Auburn would hold the tie breaker.

Default Re: Iron Bowl

Gotta give the slight edge to Bama. I like the 3-4 against Auburn's running scheme and I like Bama's ability to control the pace on the ground. That being said, in Jordan-Hare against Auburn's track stars, Alabama wins by 7 or less. I'm going 31-27.
