The Iron Bowl figures heavily in the national championship race for the fifth straight year. Losses by Oregon and Kansas State put No. 2 Alabama back in strong position Saturday night a week after falling to No. 9 Texas A&M. The Crimson Tide will face No. 3 Georgia in the SEC championship game with a win over rival Auburn. The Tigers don't have an SEC win.

Tide center Barrett Jones says of the regular-season finale: ''It's the West, it's all our hopes and dreams, and also, it's Auburn.''
