Any Other Result


Top-ranked Alabama looks to complete an undefeated regular season and move closer to capturing the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings when it hosts bitter rival Auburn on Saturday in an SEC contest. The Crimson Tide have been a dominant squad throughout the entire season while the No. 16 Tigers may have leading rusher Kamryn Pettway back after he missed the last two games with a leg injury.

Alabama’s defense ranks second nationally in total defense (252.6 yards per game) and with 40 sacks, and will be extra pumped up to see its fierce rival.

Having Pettway (1,106 rushing yards) back to team with sophomore Kerryon Johnson (823) gives the Tigers the arsenal to test Alabama’s top-rated run defense that allows only 68.9 yards per game. White avoids mistakes with only three interceptions while passing for 1,644 yards and nine touchdowns, while Jeremy Johnson hasn’t played much this season with 25 passing attempts – one being his 20th career touchdown throw. Auburn ranks seventh in scoring defense (14.3 points per game) and 18th in total defense (334.5), and the unit is receiving stellar play from junior outside linebacker Carl Lawson (team-best nine sacks) and senior cornerback Joshua Holsey (team-high three interceptions).

The defense has been stellar and ranks second in scoring defense (11.4) with senior defensive end Jonathan Allen (seven sacks) rated a sure top-five pick in the next NFL draft. Senior outside linebacker Tim Williams leads the unit with eight sacks, senior outside linebacker Ryan Anderson has 14 1/2 tackles for losses and sophomore strong safety Minkah Fitzpatrick owns a team-best four interceptions. Alabama averages 40.3 points per game behind freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts, who has accounted for 30 touchdowns (19 passing, 11 rushing) and thrown for 2,168 yards and added 803 on the ground.

Alabama won six of the past eight meetings and holds a 44-35-1 series lead.
