Alabama heads down south to Auburn, looking to sweep the Tigers for the first time since 2015, when Bruce Pearl first arrived in the Plains. Auburn Arena will likely be rocking tonight, as the Tigers will be chomping at the bit to avenge their 76-71 loss in Tuscaloosa last month, one of the few they've suffered this season. Alabama will need to really assert itself on the glass and in the paint, as Auburn is susceptible to teams with good size who can also defend, especially with starting post Anfernee McLemore now done for the season.
The game tips at 7:30 PM CST and will be televised by the SEC Network.
