Auburn vs. Alabama when the Tide is No. 2: This is the 11th time the Tigers have played an Alabama team ranked No. 2, and the Tide is 8-2 in those games so far. Each of Alabama’s last three national champions beat Auburn when ranked No. 2: 2011, 2009 and 1992. Also, the 1978 and 1964 teams were No. 2 when beating the Tigers. However, two of Alabama’s most disappointing losses came when ranked No. 2 against Auburn: the 17-16 loss in 1972 and the 30-20 defeat at Auburn in 1989.
Scoring streak: Alabama hasn’t been shut out since 2000 by Auburn 9-0 in Tuscaloosa.
Perfect kicker: Alabama’s Jeremy Shelley hasn’t missed in 63 kicks this year, including 53 extra points and 10 field goals. The last kicker who was keeping pace with Shelley was Navy’s Nick Sloan, who missed a kick three weeks ago.
