The Crimson Tide is favored on Friday in this game that can be seen on CBS.  It is the biggest game of the season for both teams as Auburn can make the BCS title game with a win over Alabama and then a win over South Carolina in the SEC title game.  Alabama would love to end the hopes of their bitter rivals and make a BCS bowl game. This is the first time Auburn and Alabama have met with both been ranked in the Top 10 since 1994.

Cam Newton
In the past few weeks there have been a number of stories about Cam Newton in the press but unless the NCAA intervenes and announces something unforeseen, Newton can win the Heisman Trophy and the Tigers can get to the BCS title game.  Newton is the favorite for the Heisman Trophy and he is the most dynamic player in the country. Newton leads the 5th best offense in the country.  Auburn is averaging 42.8 points per game.

Crimson Tide
Alabama does not have Auburn’s offense but they are not that far behind at 20th in the country.  What the Tide does have is a defense that is third in the country.  That defense will get their biggest test of the season against Newton and Auburn.
