Rivalry Week 13 Preview

Blood may be shed like this Yusef Kelly kick to the head during rivalry week This is the week in college football where record is irrelevant to many teams.  Look at Auburn this year:  3-8 overall and winless in the SEC.  In the eyes of many Auburn fans, the mediocrity of this season will be erased with a huge upset win over Alabama this week.  The Iron Bowl isn’t the only big rivalry game with BCS implications for one, or both, teams involved.
