Auburn (7-3) vs. Alabama A&M (4-6) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Nov. 19
Game Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, AL
Network: SEC Network
Normally a team coming off a total and complete clunker would want to prepare for the massive showdown against Alabama by gearing up the offense and working out all the kinks against a team like Alabama A&M. Instead, the Tigers just need the week off to heal up a bit.
The Tigers couldn’t muster up any offense against Georgia, wasting a brilliant defensive effort that was more than good enough to come up with the road win.
QB Sean White isn’t right with a shoulder injury, and RB Kamryn Pettway is out for the second straight week with a leg injury. To have any remote shot at pulling off the shocker in Tuscaloosa, everyone has to be ready to go. Against an Alabama A&M team with no defense and little pop on offense, it shouldn’t take much of an effort to put this one away early.
The sad truth, though, is that the Iron Bowl doesn’t matter. At least, it doesn’t matter to the bigger picture of the 2016 college football season, with Alabama already winning the SEC West and a loss not mattering a lick to the College Football Playoff – a 12-1 SEC champion Crimson Tide would get in.
Instead, Auburn is shooting for the Sugar Bowl – not a bad consolation prize – and not the CFP next week against the Crimson Tide.
And the rest will do the Tigers good as they’ll get up big early and coast from there, getting plenty of backups playing time in the final home game of the season.
