It’s Iron Bowl gameday in T-Town as Alabama Football hosts its biggest rival. The 9-2, Crimson Tide needs a win over the Auburn Tigers to reach the milestone of a 10-win regular season.

CBS has the game, with its broadcast team of Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson and Jenny Dell. In addition to the main broadcast, the game will be streamed by CBS and on fuboTV.

Radio coverage will be provided by the Crimson Tide Sports Network (CTSN) with Chris Stewart, John Parker Wilson, Christian Miller and Roger Hoover. Along with the CTSN’s many radio stations, it can also be heard on Sirius/XM/SXM 81/81.

The 2:30 PM CST game is expected to kick off at 2:09 PM CST.

The two teams will meet for the 87th time. The Alabama Crimson Tide leads the series at 48-37-1. The Crimson Tide will be looking to even its record against Auburn in Tuscaloosa. Going into the contest, Auburn is 7-6 in Tuscaloosa. The Crimson Tide has not lost to Auburn at home since the 2010 season.

The Tuscaloosa weather at kickoff is expected to be cloudy with a temperature in the mid-60s. There is a 40% chance of rain at kickoff with the rain probability growing to near 80% by the game’s conclusion. Winds are expected to be 9-10 mph.

It is Senior Day at Bryant-Denny. Before the game, the Alabama players who will be recognized with their families are Jordan Battle (DB), Bret Bolin (WR), Darrian Dalcourt (OL), DJ Dale (DL),
Emil Ekiyor Jr. (OL), Tyler Harrell (WR), DeMarcco Hellams (DB), Grant Krieger (WR), Cameron Latu (TE), Jaylen Moody (LB), Gabe Pugh (SN), Kendall Randolph (OL/TE), Will Reichard (PK), Jackson Roby (OL), Tyler Steen (OL), Henry To’oTo’o (LB) and Byron Young (DL).

Though it is almost assured to be the last game in Tuscaloosa for Crimson Tide stars Bryce Young and Will Anderson Jr., they will not participate in the Senior Day ceremony.

According to FanDuel, Alabama is a 22.5-point favorite. The Moneyline is Alabama -1800 and Auburn +920, with the Over-Under at 50.5 points.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.

Final Alabama Football Game Prediction

Alabama should win by a comfortable margin. The Crimson Tide is a much better team. Alabama, at its best, will win in a blowout, but so often this season, the Crimson Tide has played below its best.

The Tigers, under Interim Head Coach, Carnell ‘Cadillac’ Williams, will put up a fight. In the end, the game will not need any overtime.

I’ll go with Alabama 34 – Auburn 17
