Iron Bowl History
The rivalry first began on February of 1893. Auburn took the inaugural win by a score of 32-22 in a game that I’m sure we all remember. In their latest tilt last year, Alabama prevailed by a score of 55-44. As mentioned earlier, Bama leads the all-time series and is projected to win again in 2015. There are still high hopes for Auburn though because this could be the biggest game of their season. They’re also 5-5 in the last ten Iron Bowls and could definitely use a boost to finish out their season strong.
Betting on the No.2 Alabama Crimson Tide (10-1, 6-1 SEC)
The Tide need to keep their defense mighty. It shouldn’t be too tall of a task considering the way they’ve been playing as of late. They are currently third among FBS schools allowing just 14.5 points per game. Alabama has also won four of the last five Iron Bowl meetings and by hefty scores as well. All but once have they scored under 30 points, and that came was five years ago. Ever since, the Tide have burned Auburn for a ton of points through the air and have also been very strong on the ground. Counting in the Tide’s improved special teams this season and it could be a messy game if you’re a Tigers fan.

Betting on the Auburn Tigers (6-5, 2-5 SEC)
Betting on Auburn outright would be a risky move. Against a 14.5 point spread though…well you may have something there.
The Tigers put up a great performance last week taking out Idaho 56-34. What won the game for the Tigers was their ground attack. For the third consecutive time the jungle cats rushed for over 200 yards, with Jovon Robinson leading the way with 99 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown.
Auburn will need to be fantastic from top to bottom in this game, if they want to come out victorious. With that said, they’ve been averaging 28.5 points per game this season. So of all bets, the Over-Under could be in their sites.
Alabama (-14.5) beats Auburn, 42-24.[sc:NCAA490banner ]
