War Eagle, everybody! It’s the final regular season college Saturday of the year, and the Auburn Tigers are in the friendly confines of Jordan Hare Stadium today, to take on the number one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. The winner of this game will be the SEC Western Division Champion, and head to Atlanta next weekend to take on either Missouri or South Carolina. The loser will be left with another 365 days of taunts and barbs from the other side.
This game will be nationally televised on CBS, and kicks off at 2:30 PM Central Time. It’s a clash of top five teams, with major implications in the BCS race. Never before has the Iron Bowl featured two teams ranked as high. Alabama is ranked first in the nation, and Auburn is 4th.
Those attending the game will enjoy near-perfect fall footall weather. It should be mostly sunny, with the temperature in the 50s throughout the game. The sun is low in the sky this time of year, and will glare for much of the game behind the jumbotron in the south end of Jordan Hare Stadium.
As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be in during the day at times, and at the keyboard for a live play by play. This is it, folks! The Iron Bowl! It’s time to lay it all on the line, and smash the hated Tide! War Eagle! Go Tigers! Beat Bama!
