Iron Ball Saturday

With four conference wins between the two, this afternoon's Auburn-Alabama basketball game is far from must-see tv, but anytime the two schools get together there's reason to watch. While Jeff Lebo has struggled during his tenure on the Plains, he's had little trouble with the school up the road. Auburn has won five of the past six meetings, including a sweep of last year's two meetings. Today may prove more difficult. Alabama brings in the SEC's top defense, while Lebo counters with the league's worst. A loss today likely seals the fate of the Auburn coach. Tip off is set for 3 p.m. CT in Auburn. Below are links to some stories from around the South...
