Tigers Can’t Catch the Tide (grading Auburn’s 55-44 loss to Alabama)

Iron Bowl Grades

War Eagle, everybody. It's time now for the Acid Reign report on Auburn's 55-44 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Iron Bowl. In many ways, this game was a microcosm of Auburn's season in October and November. Despite having one of the most explosive offenses in Auburn history, this team finds ways to hamstring themselves. The Auburn defense can take a bit of solace that they aren't quite as bad as the defenses the team fielded in 2009, 2011 and 2012. What can one say about an offense that chewed up 630 yards of offense, made 28 first downs, and scored 44 points? It should have been enough to win, but ...

Turn the Tide! (an Iron Bowl preview)

Hostile Road environment

War Eagle everybody, this morning we're going to take a look at the Alabama Crimson Tide and speculate as to how the Auburn Tigers match up for this year's Iron Bowl. The 2nd ranked (AP poll) Tide will host the 15th ranked Tigers in Tuscaloosa. Most aren't giving Auburn much of a chance in this game, nor is Las Vegas. Alabama opened as a 7-point favorite, and the line has increased quickly to about 8.5 points. The real story will be the mindset and injury status of both teams. Early in the season, both teams were stomping the opposition. As of late, things have been tighter.
