In 2023, Alabama will travel to face its rival Auburn for the Iron Bowl. Despite Alabama’s superior record and heavy favoritism, fans know that anything can happen in this intense matchup at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Coming off an embarrassing loss, Auburn’s morale is low according to head coach Hugh Freeze, who is familiar with defeating Alabama. ESPN’s advanced analytics gives the Crimson Tide an 85.6% chance of winning, leaving a 14.4% chance of an earth-shattering upset.
If Alabama loses to Auburn, it would dash their hopes for the College Football Playoff and damage their 2023 team’s reputation. On the other hand, Auburn aims to spoil Alabama’s season.
