Alabama-Auburn: The Eye of the Tiger Has Top-Ranked Crimson Tide in Sight

Christopher WilliamsCorrespondent INovember 23, 2008

Take everything you know about the 2008 Auburn Tigers and the 2008 Alabama Crimson Tide and throw it out of the window. When these two teams meet up on Saturday, there will be a lot on the line for both teams.

For Auburn, they need to win in order to become bowl eligible. For Alabama, they need to win in order to maintain their No. 1 ranking in the BCS in order to have a shot at the National Championship if they beat Florida in the SEC Championship.

Yes, I do know Auburn has one of the worst offenses in College Football while Alabama has one of the best defenses.

Also, I do understand that things might be falling apart in Auburn and there is a change Coach Tommy Tuberville might not be the head coach next year.

Everything is pointing to Alabama to win this game and there is little reason to think otherwise. If someone told you Auburn is going to win you will think they are crazy, right? Well here it is, Auburn is going to win on Saturday.

Why do I think Auburn will win? Everything just seems to be going perfectly for Alabama and I am surprised the Crimson Tide have not lost a game yet this season.

Some of you will think I look for any reason to bash the Crimson Tide, but this is not the case. In fact, as a member of Bleacher Report, I have learn that Alabama has some of the best fans in College Football. To be honest with you, I wish I was born a Bama fan, but I am not and I am just telling you what I think will happen on Saturday.

This is Auburn’s last chance to salvage this season and they will playing on emotion. This sounds similar to the reason why I said LSU would beat Bama, and in my defense the LSU Tigers tied Bama after four quarters before Bama beat LSU in OT.

This should be an interesting week and I know both teams will be ready, but you heard it here first. Put your life savings on it; Auburn will win this one.
