Alabama Football: Auburn History, the Nick Saban Era. No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 6 Auburn. Who wins? Well, we think we know After Gene Stallings, Alabama football had a difficult ten seasons. Then came the Crimson Tide Restoration led by Nick Saban. Nick Saban’s impact on Alabama football is immense. To fully appreciate it, look back to the Alabama vs. Auburn series the ten seasons before Saban.
From 1997-2006 the Alabama football record against Auburn was three wins and seven losses. Never before had Auburn won seven of ten games against the Tide. The primary architect of that Auburn domination was Tommy Tuberville.The 82nd Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn features stakes as high as they’ve ever been. With a win over top-ranked Alabama, No. 6 Auburn could usurp the Tide as SEC West champions, get a rematch with Georgia in the conference championship game and put the Tigers in prime position to potentially earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.
Saturday’s winner wins the West and sets itself up to continue that streak. While there’s still a slim chance Alabama could lose Saturday and make the Playoff, the safest and surest way in is to win. Auburn has no mulligans left. The Tigers must beat No. 1 Alabama and then Georgia again in the SEC Championship. Can the Tigers take the next step Saturday, or will Alabama win its fourth consecutive Iron Bowl? That’s something we’ve been discussing for quite some time.
That’s not a slight to the Tigers, who looked like an absolute force a couple weeks ago against Georgia. With the defense playing at that kind of speed, few teams in America could probably score against the Tigers. In all likelihood, Auburn gives Alabama its best game of the season and this goes down to the wire. For Alabama and Auburn fans there is nothing, literally nothing like the Iron Bowl.
