On paper, this year’s “Iron Bowl” game between Alabama and Auburn doesn’t look that appealing.  The Crimson Tide enter the game 10-1 this season and look to be on their way to another SEC West division title.  On the flip side, the Tigers enter the match-up at 6-5 (2-5 SEC) and in 7th (last) place in the SEC West. Again, on paper, this doesn’t seem like a fair fight. however would like to remind you that this game is where anything can happen.  That it is the fiercest rivalry in sports. That physicality and fireworks are the rule, not the exception when these two teams meet. If you’re finding it hard to get excited about the game Saturday, allow the following hype video they produced help.

Yeah, that’ll work.  The Tide and the Tigers meet at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Saturday at 3:30 pm on CBS.  Be there.
