OUR PREDICTION: This should be a tough, physical, knock-down, drag-out fight between two of the biggest rivals in the nation. The under is 4-1 in the Tigers' last five road games, is 12-3-2 in their last 17 games versus an opponent with a winning record, and has cashed in 12 of their last 17 games overall. The under is also 5-1 in the Crimson Tide's last six home games, is 5-2 in their last seven games in November, and is 10-2 in their last 12 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. Expect this to be a defensive struggle throughout.
