Top the Tide! (Auburn at Alabama Open Thread)
A Hostile Venue Awaits
War Eagle, everybody! This afternoon the the Auburn Tigers take the perilous journey to Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. They’ll take on the number-one ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in a made-for-TV showdown. Alabama can continue ITS march towards a championship while Auburn tries to play spoiler and keep faint title hopes of its own alive.
This game will kick off at 2:30 PM Central Standard Time and will be nationally televised on CBS. For the few attending this game, it should be a good afternoon for football with mostly clear skies and the temperature around 65 degrees F. There is no chance of rain. A nearly full moon will rise after dark with Jupiter and Saturn to the southwest and Mars to the southeast.
The only COVID issue that I’ve seen this week involving this game is that Alabama head coach Nick Saban will miss it due to the illness. The status of the rest of the Alabama players and coaching staff is up in the air. Auburn is said to be missing no one due to the virus.
As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I’ll have sporadic commentary on various scores around the conference, and I will have my usual play by play at game time. I am looking forward to another great day of college football! War Eagle, and let’s beat Bama!
