Few expect Auburn to defeat Alabama on Saturday, as the experts have made the Tigers 21-point underdogs.
However, all of that will go out the window in the Iron Bowl when two hated rivals collide.
"I’m not even from Alabama, and being here for just one year, I hate Alabama," defensive end Corey Lemonier said to the press on Tuesday.
"We respect each other a lot," added tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen. "But we dislike each other a lot."
Auburn will be faced with one of their biggest challenges of the season, especially on offense, where Gus Malzahn will have to find a way for the Tigers to move the ball. The defense, which has struggled this season, will also have a huge task in stopping Trent Richardson.
