Ah, your typical late-November SEC week off with an FCS opponent. A tale as old as time. It doesn’t much matter because Alabama will be well in the playoff hunt with a tough schedule to this point and they don’t really need extra help, but this will be another win on the resume.
An 11-0 record heading into the final week of the season against Auburn? Yes, please.
Prediction: Win (11-0)
It’s hard to believe that Hugh Freeze is Auburn’s new head coach not long after he was let go at Ole Miss for recruiting violations. But the Tigers like what he brings to the table and think he can turn the program back in the right direction after the Bryan Harsin experiment.
Year one is going to be rough, though.
Although this is a rivalry and anything can happen, I just think Alabama is too powerful for the rebuilding Tigers in 2023. This won’t be close.
Alabama finishes the regular season unblemished.
Prediction: Win (12-0, 8-0)
