Alabama vs. Auburn: Time, stream, history for the 2020 Iron Bowl

5 FBS games to watch in Week 13

The 85th Iron Bowl between No. 1 Alabama (7-0) and No. 22 Auburn (5-2) heads back to Tuscaloosa, where the Crimson Tide look to rectify last year's devastating defeat. The 48-45 loss wiped away Alabama's 2019 College Football Playoff hopes, and this year, the No. 1 team in the nation plans on nothing standing in the way of a playoff berth.

But if any team can create turmoil for Alabama, it's Auburn. To make matters worse for the Tide, head coach Nick Saban has been ruled out for the game after testing positive for COVID-19.

The Tigers are coming off a 30-17 victory over Tennessee that saw Auburn score 10 points in each of the last three quarters. Alabama enters the Iron Bowl off a 63-3 rout over Kentucky, one year after entering the Auburn game with a 66-3 win over FCS Western Carolina.

Alabama vs. Auburn football: Preview

Alabama has been dominant through its first seven games of the season. Statement victories over Jimbo Fisher's Texas A&M (52-24) and Kirby Smart's Georgia (41-24) professed how proficient the Crimson Tide offense plays. The 41-0 shutout of Mike Leach and Mississippi State showed how the defense has improved since giving up 48 points to Ole Miss in the third game of the season.

Alabama's formidable offensive attack averages 548.6 yards per game in comparison to Auburn's 402.9. Quarterback and Heisman candidate Mac Jones is averaging 346.6 passing yards per game, recording 2,426 yards and 18 touchdown so far this season.

The reigning SEC Freshman of the Year Bo Nix leads the charge for the Tigers. He's thrown for more than 220 yards in five of seven games. He's totaled 1,627 passing yards and 10 touchdowns. Anthony Schwartz and Seth Williams combine for 1,069 yards and six touchdowns as the bulk of the receiving core. Like his namesake conveys, Tank Bigsby, who is questionable to enter the game due to a hip injury, is the Tigers' main rusher, netting 527 yards and five touchdowns.

Auburn's two losses came against Georgia (27-6) and South Carolina (30-22). The Tigers tried to create and sustain rhythm against the Bulldogs but Georgia's defense would not budge. Nix was sacked three times and threw an interception. Against the Gamecocks, Nix threw three interceptions, a microcosm of Auburn's season of turnovers. The Tigers total 42 turnovers to their opponents' 24. Both of Auburn's losses were away games, making Saturday's in Tuscaloosa an added advantage for Alabama.
