As usual with Bama, the defense will provide the cover, they just don't get beat much wide, or deep. They play very disciplined gap/contain football so Auburn will struggle like they did against Georgia and have fewer big plays. Marshall is tough to predict, especially in a tough environment like Tuscaloosa. Unusual for Alabama but their offense is dependent on the passing game and how well Cooper can get open, shut him down and the Tide has problems....trouble is, he may be the best receiver in the country and Auburn is shaky in the secondary. In this rivalry anything is possible but I think Sims is comfortable at home and will take advantage of a weak Auburn defense and win by double digits.
