Scoring D, Rushing D, Iron Bowl edition

looking into my 2 favorite snapshot stats, what do we see for the Iron Bowl?

Bama #3 in rushing D at 75.1 ppg, and Auburn #45 at 130.3

Bama at #5 in scoring D at 12.5 ypg, and Auburn at #10 16.4

(As an aside, Bama and USC are the only 2 teams in the top 5 of both of these rankings)

While there are no suprises here, this is another indication of what we already knew: Alabama is a better football team than Auburn.  With another stout defensive game, the Tide should bear down and take control in the second half.  Run left, run left, run left.  A boring recipe for success, but it will be enough against an outmanned Auburn team.

I could go more into other teams in the top 10 of the BCS, and look ahead to Florida, and there are some interesting things there (along with why Utah does not belong in the top 5), but I don't want to focus on anything but Auburn right now.  No stat matters more than winning, and no game is more important than the next one.  There's not much more to say about this game that hasn't been said.

Otherwise, I predict Bama by about 17, and Auburn with less than 200 total yards of offense in the game.

Roll Tide!
