The number one team in the country the Auburn Tigers host the Alabama Crimson Tide on Tuesday, in a classic SEC rivalry matchup. Like the Jayhawks and Cyclones, these two teams met on January 11th, where Auburn won 81-77. The Tigers needed four straight free throws to close out the game from Allen Flanigan in that game, after Alabama went on an incredible 14-0 run to nearly steal a victory. It’s been an up and down season for Alabama who recently won convincingly against Baylor, after losing to the Georgia Bulldogs in the same week. Auburn has been on fire, easily the best team in the country so far this year with a sparkling 20-1 record. It has been an incredibly balanced attack from Auburn as it currently has the 38th ranked offense and the 26th ranked defense in the nation. Eight different players are averaging fifteen or more minutes per game this year which speaks to the depth that this Auburn rotation has. My opinion on this game? Hammer Auburn. As much as conference rivalries play into games, I don’t see Alabama putting together another 14-0 run in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter. Maybe a more accurate way of saying it is that I don’t expect Auburn to give another one of those runs up.
