Share Article

Number One Alabama faces Number Four Auburn in the Iron Bowl this weekend and NCAA Football ticket sales are trending, said Marta Ault at The other Top Ten teams in this week’s Power Rankings - Florida State, Ohio State, Missouri, Clemson, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Baylor and South Carolina – are also facing pivotal match-ups in Week 14 of the 18-week regular season.

Over 87,451 fans will be there as the No. 4 Tigers host the No. 1 Crimson Tide in this Saturday’s Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium, with a BCS title berth at stake.

This Saturday’s showdown, the so-called Iron Bowl, may be the game of the year. It’s the high-scoring Tigers hosting the tenacious Crimson Tide and the stakes couldn’t be higher. Nothing short of the SEC Western Division championship and a shot at the BCS title hang in the balance.

The battlefield is groomed and ready. The rivalry is fierce. Both teams are at their peak. The fourth-ranked Auburn Tigers face a tall task against a top rated Alabama team that has won back-to-back national championships. The mighty Crimson Tide lost only once in 2012 and remain undefeated this season as they seek their third straight BCS title.

The rivalry dates back over a century and stands as one of the most heated in NCAA football history. The entire state of Alabama practically shuts down to watch the annual meeting known as the Iron Bowl between the state’s two proudest programs. The schools hold 30 SEC titles between them (23 by Alabama and seven by Auburn) and both are among the winningest programs in college football history.

“The Iron Bowl is the biggest game in the state of Alabama every year, and a major deal nationally as well,” said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace “With both teams in strong contention for the title this year, this matchup means more than ever and it’s great for the game as well,” added Ault.

“That’s why we’re proud to offer fans the most comprehensive and continuously updated selection of sports tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase.”

“To access the full line-up of NCAA Football tickets now available, customers can go to and click on the Sports Header, then click on NCAA Football to select their team and their tickets,” said Ault.

Statistically, both teams are superb. The Tigers own the SEC's best rush offense topping 320 yards per game, while Alabama has been a wall, allowing just over 91 yards on the ground on average. Something will have to give this weekend in what is sure to be a historic contest.

Saturday also marks the first time both Alabama and Auburn have been ranked in the BCS standings heading into the Iron Bowl since 2010. That year Auburn stunned Alabama 28-27 after overcoming a 24-0 deficit.

Cam Newton rallied the Tigers on a 28-point scoring spree that ended with a TD pass to Philip Lutzenkirchen in the closing minutes. It was the biggest deficit overcome by either team in Iron Bowl history.

Auburn went on to win the SEC crown and the BCS National Championship in 2010, but the Crimson Tide has been the team to beat with startling success in recent years. As national champions each of the past two years and three of the past four, Alabama is dominating college football right now.

Alabama has remained a top-five member in the last 46 AP polls, tying the fourth-longest streak in the 77-year history of the rankings. The Crimson Tide are staring down a clear path to college football’s biggest stage if they can win out. Defeat Auburn and win the SEC title game and it is on to the Rose Bowl for a shot at an unprecedented third straight national title.

The Top Ten NCAA Football teams for Week 14 are Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Auburn, Missouri, Clemson, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Baylor, and South Carolina.
