Auburn vs. Alabama: Is Nick Saban Greatest Coach in the History of Iron Bowl?

The Iron Bowl is one of the more historic rivalries in college football that dates back to 1893. The two programs that have to share the state of Alabama dislike each other to say the least and can't wait to let their feelings be known when they take the field at the end of the year.

The two rivals will square off for the 77th time this weekend, when the Auburn Tigers travel to Bryant-Denny Stadium to play the No. 2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. This meeting will take place at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

But while this year’s contest may not have as much hype, as Auburn has had one of the worst seasons in program history, there is an interesting thought when it comes to head coach Nick Saban.

Although there have been many successful coaches to take part in this rivalry, could he already be the best coach of them all in this meeting?

This would certainly be seeing a lot, but let's take a look and see where he ranks all-time in this terrific college football matchup.
