  Week 14 SEC Predictions

Last week's predictions were 8-2, and overall they are 77-24. This week, Auburn travels to Tuscaloosa to face arch-rival Alabama. The Iron Bowl will be televised by CBS starting at 2:30 pm CT.

Auburn at Alabama

In the series, Alabama leads 44351 and has won the last two contests. In games played in Tuscaloosa, Auburn leads 73.

The Tigers are 8-3 overall and 5-2 in conference play.

In Saturday's game against Alabama A&M, senior quarterback Jeremy Johnson started for the injured Sean White. Johnson finished the night 14 of 19 for 147 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for two touchdowns as Auburn routed the Bulldogs 55-0.

If White is still sidelined with a shoulder injury, either Johnson or John Franklin III would start against Alabama. Franklin ran for 81 yards and a touchdown on four carries against Alabama A&M.

The long grind of the season has several key players banged up but they should see playing time Saturday. Running back Kamryn Pettway, who has played a huge role in Auburn's rushing attack, should return for Saturday's game after being out of action the last couple of weeks with a left leg injury. For the season, Pettway has 1,106 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.

As a unit, Auburn averages 297.8 rushing yards per game, 175.7 passing yards per game, 473.5 total yards of offense and 34.1 points per game.

Saturday's contest could be a defensive battle as both teams feature stingy defenses. Auburn's defense allows opponents 117.7 rushing yards per game, 216.8 passing yards per game, 334.5 total yards and 14.3 points per game. Alabama's defense allows just 11.4 points per game.

Alabama is 11-0 overall after beating Chattanooga 31-3. The Tide has wrapped up the SEC West and will play Florida in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 3.

As a unit, Alabama's offense averages 227.8 yards per game through the air, 249.8 rushing yards per game, and 40.3 points per game.

Jalen Hurts starts under center and has completed 182 of 281 attempts for 2,168 yards with 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Hurts has also rushed for 803 yards on 142 carries and 11 touchdowns. Damien Harris leads the team with 853 rushing yards and he's reached the endzone twice. Calvin Ridley leads the team with 57 catches for 640 yards and seven touchdowns.

Prediction: Alabama 30-10.
