If you said four months ago that the biggest game of the college football season would be Alabama's late-November trip to Auburn, people probably would have laughed at you.
Alabama was locked and loaded for another championship run, while Auburn was trying to pick up the pieces from the 3-9 season in Gene Chizik's final year.
Tigers coach Gus Malzahn has executed a remarkable turnaround from a year ago and has Auburn at No. 4 in the BCS standings with a very realistic path to a national championship berth.
The Tide sits at No. 1 in the standings like they have all year and have looked every bit as dominant as people expected them to this time of year.
This will be the highest ranked Iron Bowl in the history of the series, so the excitement is sure to be on another level.
