It's rivalry week in college football and there's arguably none bigger than Alabama-Auburn. The Yellowhammer State teams will meet for the 80th time in the 2015 Iron Bowl Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The players, coaches and fans have waited a full calendar year. Countless words have been spoken in coffee shops and on sports talk radio in the Magnolia State, and countless words have been written in newspapers, magazines and online. Following a 31-17 victory last season in Oxford, Ole Miss Rebels supporters have held bragging rights over their rivals from Starkville. And now, after 365 days, the Mississippi State Bulldogs have an opportunity for retribution in the Egg Bowl.
The College Football Playoff Committee released its fourth set of top 25 rankings of the 2015 season on Tuesday night. Clemson remained No. 1 for the fourth straight week in a row, followed by Alabama at No. 2, Oklahoma at No. 3 and Iowa at No. 4.
Week 13 of the 2015 college football season is the last full weekend of action. Next week is an abbreviated schedule with championship games, and a handful of teams with losing records and no bowl possibilities will finish their season during this week’s slate of games.
