Alabama Crimson Tide 11-0, 7-0 SEC
Auburn Tigers 9-2, 6-1 SEC
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. It's Rivalry Saturday. Time to put baby back in the corner!
Saturday, November 25, 2017, 2:30/3:30 CBS - Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson with Allie LaForce.

The Crimson Tide are a -4½ favorite. The ESPN FPI gives Alabama a 60.7% chance of winning. Former Auburn coach Gene Chizik predicted a close win for the Tigers (he sure has been feeling nostalgic for a school that canned him two years after winning a national championship).
Alabama leads the series with Auburn 45-35-1 and have won three straight and seven of the last nine.
There is great deal of anticipation that the Crimson Tide might be getting linebackers Christian Miller, Terrell Lewis and Mack Wilson back. They may be game time decisions but I'd be shocked if none of them see the field. The story you don't hear is that Auburn linebackers Chandler Wooten (undisclosed) and Deshaun Davis (ankle) were injured last Saturday vs. ULM. They should play but it could be a factor. Tigers RB Kamryn Pettway remains out.
Kickoff weather should be Cloudy with 63° and around 56° by the end. There is a 0% chance of rain during the game. There is a 0% chance of an Aubie win.
In an unfortunate piece of scheduling, the 25th ranked Crimson Tide hoops team will be tipping off against #14 Minnesota at 4pm/5pm in the Barclays Center Classic Fail. There will be no Open Thread but feel free to comment on this thread and the Second Half thread if you plan on pulling double-duty. #BURT!
You know how to get the Open Game Threads going, right?
