No. 1 Alabama and No. 22 Auburn compete in one of the most unusual iron bowls of recent times.
Top-ranked Tide, capable of securing another SEC West title and top contender for the college football playoffs, will have to do without coach Nick Saban after testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. That means former USC and Washington coach Steve Sarkisian will be in charge of the head coach duties while Saban watches at home. Saban certainly prepared his squad to play without his absence, but how much will that affect the way the game plays?

Auburn couldn't jump into this game at full throttle either. Senior Linebacker K.J. Britt and a trio of offensive starters who run back Tank Bigsby and face Brodarious Hamm and Alec Jackson are questionable with various injuries. That doesn't bode well for the Tigers' offensive, which will have to scoop up lots of points to keep up with Alabama's three-headed offensive monster quarterback Mac Jones running back Najee Harris and receiver DeVonta Smith.
The question is whether Alabama's defense, which has improved over the last three games, can keep the Tiger, led by Bo Nix, out of the end zone. They were unable to do so in 2019, resulting in a 48-45 loss.
