2022 Iron Bowl Prediction

Alabama Crimson Tide 34, Auburn Tigers 21

Last season's 4-OT thriller was one to remember, but a returning Heisman Trophy winning quarterback in Bryce Young and one of the best defenses in the country should be enough to give the Crimson Tide a more commanding edge this time around.

The Tigers will be lead by Texas A&M transfer quarterback Zach Calzada, who pulled off the stunning upset against Alabama last season with the Aggies. Auburn has not gotten a win in Tuscaloosa since 2010 with future NFL MVP Cam Newton, and early signs indicate that they would need to pull off another stunner to emerge victorious in this year's Iron Bowl.

Why is it called the Iron Bowl?
