ALABAMA: The Crimson Tide won their third national title in four seasons in 2012, and certainly have the personnel to do it again. QB AJ McCarron (2,933 pass yds, 30 TD, 3 INT) led the nation in passing efficiency and still has WR Amari Cooper (1,000 rec. yds, 11 TD). RB T.J. Yeldon (1,108 rush yds, 12 TD) propels the No. 16 ground game (228 YPG), which lost three O-Line starters. For the second straight season, Alabama led the nation in both total defense (250 YPG) and rushing defense (80 YPG), while ranking second in points (10.9 PPG). DE Ed Stinson (3 sacks, 5 QBH) is the lone D-Line starter back, but LB C.J. Mosley (107 tackles, 4 sacks) will dominate again with OLB Adrian Hubbard (7 sacks, 3 FF). CB Deion Belue (40 tackles, 7 PD) and safeties Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (5 INT) and Vinnie Sunseri (54 tackles) are all top-notch.
AUBURN: After an 0-8 season in the SEC, new head man Gus Malzahn has plenty to fix. He'll start by speeding up the nation's seventh-worst offense (305 YPG), which will be run by either QB Kiehl Frazier (753 pass yds, 2 TD, 8 INT) or QB Jonathan Wallace (720 pass yds, 4 TD, 4 INT). Both are lackluster options, especially with no 15-catch receivers and a weak O-Line (37 sacks allowed). The Tigers might be able to run the football with RB Tre Mason (1,002 rush yds, 5.9 YPC, 8 TD). New DC Ellis Johnson inherits a subpar defense (421 YPG, 81st in FBS; 20 pass TD, 2 INT). His 4-2-5 set is thin up front, but LB/S Justin Garrett is a perfect fit. Johnson will try to rebuild with DE Dee Ford (6 sacks), S Demetruce McNeal (90 tackles) and CB Chris Davis (46 tackles).

*Alabama-Auburn Preview* ========================

By JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer

No. 1 Alabama (11-0) at No. 4 Auburn (10-1), 3:30 p.m. EDT

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron insists Auburn is merely "the next team in our way," whatever the Tigers' record.

Auburn H-back Jay Prosch says preparation for this Iron Bowl has felt like any other game so far.

The hundreds of RVs already parked down the street from Jordan-Hare Stadium a week before kickoff offered a different perspective. Business-as-usual denials aside, No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Auburn are preparing for perhaps the biggest game ever in this rabid in-state rivalry Saturday.

The teams that have hoarded the last four national titles have only met once before when both were ranked in the top five. No. 3 Alabama beat No. 5 Auburn and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Pat Sullivan 31-7 in 1971.

Both teams are contenders going into this one, though Auburn (10-1, 6-1 SEC) likely needs No. 3 Ohio State or No. 2 Florida State to lose.

Losses by Oregon and Baylor helped the Tigers move up a couple of spots in the shrinking line of title hopefuls, but the Iron Bowl winner still must get past either No. 5 Missouri or No. 10 South Carolina in the SEC championship game.

Nick Saban's Alabama team controls its own destiny in the program's pursuit of a third straight BCS championship and fourth in five years.

McCarron insisted it was easy remaining focused on FCS Chattanooga last week and said the heightened stakes don't change his approach to the game.

"I really don't care what their record is," he said. "They're still the next team in our way trying to take what we've worked for."

Prosch offered a similar mind-set on preparing for the game, which is only the seventh top-10 matchup in a rivalry that has been played 77 times.

"It feels like we've been preparing for every other team, not really anything different," he said. "We all know it's a huge game and we're going to play our hearts out, preparing like we normally do."

Auburn tight end C.J. Uzomah said every player learns the significance of this rivalry early in their careers, even minus the high rankings. But he said with the losses by Baylor - a game Uzomah watched on TV - and Oregon and the high rankings, the game has been magnified even further.

"You step on the campus and that's the first thing you hear," Uzomah said. "You get recruited and that's the focal point that can define the season, like it is this upcoming Saturday."

Uzomah said when he saw the packed RV lot a week before the game he realized, "This is going to be huge."

"It's going to be the most unbelievable atmosphere I've ever gotten to play in," he said.

While the Tide (11-0, 7-0) were romping over Chattanooga 49-0 last Saturday, Auburn had an open date following a thrilling 43-38 win over Georgia on Nov. 16 in another matchup of traditional rivals.

Saban quickly turned his attention to the regular-season finale after Chattanooga, even if players mostly cited the coach's 24-hour celebration window allowing them to savor even that win.

"Our focus obviously needs to immediately shift to the opportunities that we have created for ourselves and the games that we have in the future," Saban said after the game. "Obviously the one that we have this week coming up against Auburn is a very important game. They have a great team. They've had a great season.

"It's going to be important for everybody in our organization to make a commitment to doing their very best job to play their best football, because that's probably what it's going to take to have success against a very good team."

Alabama's 49-0 win last season was the second-biggest margin in Iron Bowl history. Alabama won 42-14 in 2011 after the Tigers pulled off a huge comeback to win 28-27 the year before to continue their own national title run with Cam Newton.

Tide receiver Kevin Norwood said the game's significance could bring out the best in both teams. But, he added, the priority is "to really focus on doing our job, like coach Saban always preaches."

"It's definitely good because when you have something to play for, you just have a lot of motivation to play your best," Norwood said. "And we know they're going to play their best."
