Auburn has seemed to thrive under the competition of league play, as it has already taken down a previously-undefeated LSU team. The Tigers have since followed that victory up with two more wins, both coming by double digits.

After their latest upset loss to Missouri, the Crimson Tide are hanging onto their top-25 ranking by a thread. I say latest as these types of losses are nothing new to this Alabama team.

Yes, the Crimson Tide have beaten the likes of Houston, Gonzaga and Tennessee, but their latest loss adds to an upset list that includes Iona and Davidson.

Now, the Tide get to return home where they have been far better against top-notch teams. But the question remains: which Alabama team will we get in this matchup?
