After taking care of Mississippi State and dusting off Western Carolina, in a game that seemed to last three days, Iron Bowl week has finally arrived. Once again, as seems to be all too common in recent years, Alabama's dreams, in respect to the SEC and national title picture, will either be cemented or broken by the outcome of the annual tussle with Auburn.

While the Crimson Tide did suffer a plethora of bumps and bruises against Western Carolina, thankfully most of those ailments don't seem to be serious, per Nick Saban.
Wide receiver ArDarius Stewart and tight end Brian Vogler appear to be the only players whose status will be in doubt for Saturday's clash in Tuscaloosa. Saban has described both men as having stretched knee ligaments. Additional updates will likely be given Monday during Saban's game week presser.
When it comes to the gauntlet that I wrote about several weeks ago, so far so good seems to be the obvious conclusion. At this stage of the season, win and advance is the order of the day. Here's to continuing that trend for two more weeks.
