Alabama coach Nick Saban turned some heads this week when he lavished praise on Auburn.
“So, this is the best team we’ve played, probably, so far this year, and it will be the most challenging place that we’ve played,” Saban said.
The latter is likely true. No. 1 LSU would probably like a word about the “best team” point, however.
The fifth-ranked Crimson Tide (10-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference, No. 5 College Football Playoff) visits No. 16 Auburn (8-3, 4-3, No. 15 CFP) Saturday with its playoff hopes on the line, and no guarantees even with an Iron Bowl win. Las Vegas Insider has the Crimson Tide as a 3.5-point road favorite.

Auburn had risen as high as No. 7 in the rankings at midseason but wasn’t able to get over the hump against three of the four Top 10 opponents. A win over Alabama would have a big effect on perception of the Tigers’ season.
“Just playing against Bama and beating them, that’s history,” Auburn defensive end Marlon Davidson said. “You’re in the history books for life.”
Auburn freshman Bo Nix didn’t expect to be the most experienced quarterback in the Iron Bowl. But Alabama’s Mac Jones has only made two starts, both at home against overmatched opponents.
Auburn defensive tackle Derrick Brown still expects a dangerous offense.
“They’ve shown no (signs) of slowing down,” Brown said. “It’s a powerful offense. He’s in there and he gets the ball out. High-powered wide receivers that make a lot of plays, and they make plays after the catch. That’s something that we’ve got to be able to limit.”
Auburn’s matchup with the Tide’s dangerous receivers gets even more challenging in the first half. Defensive back Jamien Sherwood will have to sit the half out because of a targeting foul in the Samford game. Sherwood is a backup safety but has 40 tackles and five pass breakups.
